Oh Look! A Cuddlefish! Er- “Cuttlefish!”

Wait ’til the very end where Mr. Floating Cuttlefish decides he’s had enough of this video. Gotta go!

Top-notch video from the Monterey Bay Aquarium: see more of their clips here.

Prolly Wouldn’t Recommend This

Let’s talk about Moray Eels. Never seen one on C.O., right?

Until now.

They’ve got a rep for being, uh, ill-mannered.

Not THIS one! (And you get some great British accented narration here, too.)

Concord Barb & Paul – who must have been on an extended vaca – sent this in.

Sorry, Don’t Mind ME, Just Passin’ Through…

Friday Haiku: Bloop?

Tiny fish can swim
All day long and all night long
They need to breathe too

UPDATED! Sprock’s Friday Haiku

Clipboard01You may have seen me
In a Yellow Submarine.
Look! I’m Peter Max.

Sprock wins with the Beatles reference AND Peter Max. Two 1960s icons in one haiku? #Win. But Oakley was close. Image from @AmazingAnimals.

Timo Visits The Koi Pond

Ever seen a kitteh petteh fish?

So Timo eventually gets bored with that (a cat getting bored, imagine that) so he heads home. But then he gets bored of being inside, and wants to go outside. (A cat changing his mind, imagine that.)

Glossary Update Action!

BAROO:

Dogspeak for “Whut the…?” Frequently accompanied by the Canine Tilt and/or wrinkled brow for enhanced effect. Occasionally, animals which are not dogs have been known to have this cute-ism ascribed to them, but this is never appropriate. Dogs just have the face for it, plain & simple. Cats don’t. Fish don’t. Cockatiels? Please.

See right there, in bold type? Fish. Don’t. Baroo.

Until NOW. Behold.

Friday Haiku Too: Cuttlefish

Floating floating down
Small Cuttlefish bobs along
Looking for dinner

Nemo? U IN There?

According to the Advanced Aquarist site, “Juvenile CB clownfish will often ball up in what can only be described as a Clownado™! We need to trademark that word.”

Let’s Play “Fishball!”

Just make sure you wear your extra-thick Fishball gloves. Oh, and your oxygen tank.
