The Nudesters Are Back!

awxVqBQ_700bMaybe The Cutest Thing Under The Sea! (Examples here and here!)

And wouldn’t a whole handful of them be even better? Of course it would. No argument there.

Andrew Y. saw ’em on 9Gag, he did indeed.

WHAT! IS! THAT!

bobtailsquid2(Say in Cliff Clavin Voice:) That there Nahm is what you call a Bobtail Squid. “He accumulates bioluminescent bacteria along its underbelly, which lend it a brilliant shimmer as it reacts to light rays.*”

(Say in Norm Peterson voice:) “Great Cliffy. Now gimme a beer.”

NOTHING Dumb About THESE Guys!

Without a doubt one of THE fave WHAT IS THAT creatures C.O. has ever featured. They even had a new Rule made, just for them! Ladies & Gents, please welcome back to these pages…The Dumbo Octopus! Nice steel drum music on here, too.

“OK, Can I Get A Robe Or Something In Here?”

WHAT! IS! THAT!

Their official name is “Tardigrade.” And they are REAL. And will you look at those FOLDS???

Bebeh Pangolin ACTION!

On Thanksgiving, we showed you how Everyone Comes From Somewhere– a Bebeh Pangolin was part of that clip. Here’s more of that unusual lil’ critter:


(Digg.)

Segmented Neutrophil. Wait. What?

Can…CELLS be QTE? The answer to THAT is YES! (And this one is singing Harry Connick Jr.!)

“So, I’m learning to be a vet tech, and a couple weeks ago in the lab portion of one of my classes we were looking at blood smears. Imagine my surprise when I came across this white blood cell (a Segmented Neutrophil) smiling at me! The red blood cells around it also make it look like it has a body! Photo credit goes to my friend Sarah I., who managed to get this shot of it.” -Lindsay.

Long Eared Jerboa ACTION!

This rodent is a long eared jerboa. It hops around like a kangaroo - ImgurQ: What could be better late on a Sunday than some Long Eared Jerboa Ear Flappage Action? A: Not much. (Reddit/Imgur.)

Headline THIS, Mr. Bond “Lizard And Let Die”

iguananose (1)[*Note: LATE UPDATE 2pm PT: “Lizard and Let Die” from MA, hands down. Thanks to everyone!! -Ed.]

Yeah yeah yeah, I’ve got Spectre on the brain- can’t help it, it’s been three years since Skyfall. So when I saw this image c/o Charmian Z., that was the first that entered my mind. “This is an endangered Blue Iguana who is currently residing at the Grand Cayman Blue Iguana Recovery Program‘s facility,” she says. “They are trying to get the wild blue iguana population up to 800 individuals. The beads this one has in his spikey hairdo is like an ID tag. The colors are read from the outside in and help researchers identify the iguanas from a distance once they are released into the wild.”

So. You know what to do- let’s have some terrific headlines and we’ll update at 1pm PT!

Hmmm…This Is EITHER…

DSCN1016….one of those furry hats Sean Connery wore in “Hunt For Red October,”…or “Katherina, in the classic meatloaf position, with the end slice in view and haunches up.” Your guess is as good as mine. Pic/description from Michael S.
