While in Western nations ox penis is dried and sold as dog treats, in the Far East it is a common snack and noted to taste—quite inexplicably—as seafood left a bit too long in the pan. Ox penis can be consumed raw, but it's generally cooked by steaming or deep-frying. So if you've got a taste for overcooked squid, then ox penis is definitely the dish for you!
He must not be a night owl.
Love the Highland breed of bovine. But they are just as cantankerous as the highlanders that breed them.
IF YOU THINK THAT LOOKS WEIRD
WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE MY FACE
That monstrosity is called a northern stargazer. OK, whose goddamned idea was it to call it that? The word "stargazer" brings to mind some wispy fish with bright hippie colors and big cartoon eyes; this looks like the mud has spontaneously grown a face. Well, you know who else gazes up at the stars? The devil, from his throne in hell, apparently.
The northern stargazer is actually a kind of fish, if you can believe that. Most of it exists under the mud, so you can normally only see the horrible bits.
"Go ahead, Scooter, get a real close look. I dare you."
The northern stargazer has its eyes and mouth on top of its head due to its feeding strategy -- when it feels like a snack, it buries itself in the dirt in as little as four seconds flat, becoming nothing but a grimacing skull-face in the mud. When something tasty swims by overhead, the last thing it ever sees is something out of Jim Henson's nightmares.
The Featured Creature
"For the last time, I am not the Pumpkin King!"
Wait, did we say that last thing looked like a monster from a SyFy movie about a creature that bites the dicks off passing swimmers? Because we clearly spoke too soon. Look at the expression on that thing's face! It wants to eat your junk!
As if that wasn't bad enough, they apparently have organs above their eyes that can emit electrical shocks. Thanks, Nature!
"Don't mention it. Wait until you see the rape-sharks I'm cooking up."
Ever wondered what it would be like to give a fish a high-five? Now you can find out! This is one of nine new specimens of handfish that were recently discovered near Tasmania, Australia. Not only do they have four "limbs" where their fins should be, but they use them to walk around down there. And look how friendly the little guy is! There's no way that little face is about to tell us to fuck off!
I love this fish with hands :-)
I've never seen this guy before, how cool is he? =)
Neal likes big and ugly.
Yes, that fish is so cool! Unfortunately, I like big and ugly, too! :-)
