Astounding. It looks like one of those bizarre plush toys the Japanese would have come up with for little kids.
Irresistibly cute with those mega ears! It does look like Pikachu's cousin.

I think I love gerboas


Fish walk onto the sand to spawn.
I promise you this is the strangest and most beautiful spider you have ever seen. It is so colorful! And the mating dance is fascinating.

The spiders flag looks like a crusuder's cross on a shield and yes that is one crazy dance.

That is the most amazing spider I've ever seen. I don't like most things that have more than 6 legs, but jumping spiders have always been given an exception. They are so cool, and this one has to be the coolest of all the jumping spiders. Thanks for sharing this beauty.

MBARI researchers Bruce Robison and Kim Reisenbichler used video taken by unmanned, undersea robots called remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to study barreleye fish in the deep waters just offshore of Central California. At depths of 600 to 800 meters (2,000 to 2,600 feet) below the surface, the ROV cameras typically showed these fish hanging motionless in the water, their eyes glowing a vivid green in the ROV's bright lights. The ROV video also revealed a previously undescribed feature of these fish--its eyes are surrounded by a transparent, fluid-filled shield that covers the top of the fish's head.

This video is narrated by senior scientist Bruce Robison.
