How Many Skell Species Live in Atlantic City?

Kavanaugh already alluded to the fact that we're going to my Bachelor ParT in Atlantic City this weekend. One thing I'm very excited to see is the different types of skells that claim Atlantic City as their habitat. I'm traveling with a bunch of Weekend Skells, and I'm sure we'll see other packs of Weekend Skells throughout the area. I also plan on rubbing elbows with a bunch of Barfly Skells on Saturday night to watch Game 3 of the Knicks-Pacers series. So that means I'll be a Skell by Association (SBA). And we'll definitely see some Skelderly Skells, like this guy:

The majestic Atlantic City Skellderly Skell (Latin name: Skellderlus atlanticus)
Skellderly Skells surely love AC because old people love casinos and skells love free booze. The Atlantic City casinos have both. So that means we'll come across 4 of the 5 classes of skells that I outlined in my March blog post. The fifth is the Recovering Skell, a depressing animal that I really hope we don't encounter. That would probably mean a member of our group ended up in the hospital, which would be no bueno. Still, 4 out of 5 ain't bad. Still, I can't help but wonder whether we'll come across a new breed of skell.

Part of me thinks that the diversity of skells in Atlantic City will be similar to places like Rockaway Beach and Woodlawn. Odds are, that's the case. But another part of me hopes there's a special type of skell, one native to AC. Maybe there is an awe-inspiring Amphibious Skell that can live in and out of the ocean. Or a Gambler Skell that used to hibernate under the boardwalk when he needed sleep but had his shelter destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, and now he doesn't even bother to sleep. I feel like Frank the Tank in Old School.


"Maybe it's something really cool that I don't even know about."

Either way, I cannot wait for Skell Weekend 2013.
