I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT GLOSTER CANARIES AND I’M GONNA CRY LOOKIT THEM
THEY HAVE BOWLCUTS
LOOK AT THAT SMUG LITTLE FUCKER WITH HIS FUCKING BOWLCUT
OHHHH MYYYY GOOOODDDDDD
Fascinating. It’s called Elysia Chlorotica and lives along the east coast of North America. Apparently, it has some algal genes which let it use the chloroplasts to photosynthesize, probably acquired by horizontal gene transfer. For those wanting to know more about the whole chloroplast-theft phenomenon, it’s called kleptoplasty. The species is also apparently entirely hermaphroditic.
Man. Biology rocks.
Somebody tried to stump this squid by putting it in front of a background that its camouflage mechanisms could never hope to imitate…
So it turned itself transparent.
Venezuelan Poodle Moth
The Venezuelan poodle moth was first captured on film by Dr. Arthur Anker of Bishkek, Krgyzstan, who posted all 75 photographs of his time at the Gran Sabana National Park on Flickr. His trip to the Venezuelan park didn’t gain much fame at the time. However, another researcher, Dr. Karl Shuker, saw a picture of the fuzzy little critter online and took interest. It was found that not only is this a new species of moth, but it may very well be an entirely new species of insect altogether.
Also, it cries out for thought balloons, of the FUCK OFF, I AM PONDERING THE MEANING OF LIFE variety.
This may not be paranormal, but it is interesting. Finding new species just proves how little we know about our world and how much more could exist. Besides, he’s adorable!
Have some more Tetraodontidae
