Fish Are Friends, NOT Food! (Part II)

(Here’s Part I, BTW.) This fellow has been diving down to visit this Asian Sheepshead Wrasse for the last quarter century! He bangs on the old rusty tank to get the fish’s attention, then it looks like he gives him a snack, though it’s kinda hard to tell.

Colour Their World

246-990x645Terrific story here, everyone. Artist Stefan Siverud has been decorating Snail Shells for several years as part of his Snailpimp project.

He uses safe, non-toxic paint for these designs. And they serve a purpose that’s more important than just decorative.

The bright imagery helps them stand out so they won’t accidentally get stepped on!

Baymax Dumplings. Well, Sure They Are.

Andrew Y. sent this image in, with just the URL and the subject line, “Baymax Dumplings.” Er- what? Turns out- and I am going way out on a limb here- that Baymax is the title hero of the movie “Big Hero 6.” I think. If you can follow this plot, you get a gold star. It’s all about (quoting Wikipedia) “Hiro Hamada, a 14-year-old robotics genius who lives in the futuristic fictional city of San Fransokyo.”

A-HA! I knew the Big J was involved. It’s now OK to eat the dumplings.

Lookit! A Little Floating Hat!

There’s a LOT going on way down deep off the Puerto Rican shores! (This guy is a Dumbo Octopus.)

Meet Earl The Pandalamb

Yes, you read that right. His name is Earl. He’s a Panda. AND a Lamb. All in one. Sort of. Right?


“It’s pretty much what you’d think a Pandalamb to look like,” says Tamara.

NEW RULE OF CUTENESS!

56I was zooming through TweetDeck and came across this fantastic Dumbo Octopus (Opisthoteuthis Agassiz) on The Featured Creature’s Twitter. Are those…FEET hanging down there?

What. In. The. World.

Without a doubt, this little maniac deserves his/her own Rule. We’ve had them on C.O. for EIGHT years! And so, from this moment on, so it shall be. Sealing wax, if you please!!

Hey, Ya Little Squirt!

If you visit C.O. long enough, you’re likely to see just about every Cute thing there is to see, animuhl-wise. Oh, we might even throw in a car or two, just to keep you guessing.

So
what
are
these?

Why, Sea Squirts, of course. (*Update: Added “Under The Sea” at Faye’s suggestion. But first, ladies & gentlemen..please welcome: Mr. Bobby. Darin.

Nice hat there, little guy. “A new species of spider has been discovered. They have named it ‘Sparklemuffin.’ I am not lying.” -Katherine B.

[*Update: Meghan B. suggested “New York New York” might be the song this guy is singing. Good call. -Ed.]
