Sometimes I get jealous of my little bro and sis working at the Monterey Bay Aquarium – how cool is that? – and just want to join in on the rampant fish nerdicalism they must be enjoying every day. So here are my suggestions for water cooler/lunch table/apres ski chat today, guys:
- New sea anemone species discovered on whale fall (via)
- Also over on Cryptomundo is an update to a post I linked to a couple years ago regarding a mystery fish photograph on an old postcard: Mystery Fish Postcard Solved? Megamouth? You know when a megamouth gets involved, perhaps it’s time to step back and just admit sardines used to grow a lot bigger back in those days….
- It is not hard for me to understand why aliens abduct us, or why God hates us. We are creating mockeries of our ideal world, perhaps because we already wasted the real one.
- Shark has virgin birth. Maybe not so surprising, since the Virgin Mary was human and humans apparently have a bit of shark in them.
- Tofu sharks, rejoice!
