me when cats
I have such different morals/interests/personality than my friends, we’re all so mean to each other because we just clash and I feel I can’t relate to any of them 100%, I’m going to try to change this by putting out more positivity and hope some of that good energy will be returned, or at least out me in a good enough mood to take the harsh comments in stride
God I love deep-sea creatures. This cartoony-looking squid is Taonius borealis. It kind of looks like what would happen if E.T. had a baby with a squid… with just a dash of owl thrown in for good measure. Oh and Wall-e, I see him in there, too! What do you think?
These bizarre deep-sea squid only grow up to 50 cm in length but even something so tiny has room for unique adaptations. Its large eyes normally sit facing frontwards, but as you can see from the last photo it is able to switch them to see out laterally instead (those photos were only taken a few seconds apart). You might notice that it swims with its tentacles above its head as well. I guess it’s just into the Snooki pompadour-style look. Hey, you can’t really stay up to date on the latest hair trends if you live at the bottom of the sea, now can you?
FIRST LOOK AT UNEXPLORED NEW HEBRIDES TRENCH
Scientists from the University of Aberdeen have had the first look at the life that thrives in one of the deepest spots in the ocean.
The expedition to the New Hebrides trench, in the Pacific, revealed cusk eels and large bright red prawns swimming together on the seabed, 7,200m (4.5 miles) below the surface. the ecology was unlike anything the marine biologists had ever seen. Was loaded with bait to lure the deep-sea creatures into view.
The 30-day expedition was conducted by the University of Aberdeen’s Oceanlab and the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research in New Zealand
