Pygmy Seahorses: Masters of Camouflage
If you were to ask me “Hey Joe, what are pygmy seahorses masters of?" then of course my answer would be "CUTENESS!!!" I had no idea that they were also connoisseurs of camo.
But scientists had never asked how these diminutive deceivers were able to match their knobby host corals so closely. This video, the first in a new series called Deep Look from KQED, tells the story of how California Academy of Sciences researchers put their adorable little hiding ability to the test.
The results are not only an awesome bit of science, the close-up shots of this micro-marine world are just beautiful to behold.
Also, BABY PYGMY SEAHORSES.
This new YouTube series looks like it’s gonna be really cool! Check out Deep Look.
So apparently there is a type of animal called the Japanese Raccoon Dog. They’re basically just giant raccoon’s with serious amounts of floof.

The picture above is of a mushroom thats thought to be a specimen of Clathrus archeri right before its fingers open up. It closely resembles a hand coming out of the ground. It even has the remnants of its tattered sleeves attached to the wrist.

CA171B “Fatfin” was sighted by Blue Ocean Whale Watch in Monterey Bay, California today. He was very active, breaching and belly flopping more than a dozen times.
