Blanket octopus (Tremoctopus sp.) found in tropical and subtropical oceans, the female can reach up to two meters, while the male has only around 2,5 centimeters in size, and she is the only one who has a membrane that resembles a veil, which opens to look bigger and scare away predators (such physical differences between female and male are known as sexual dimorphism). These animals are immune to the toxins of the Portuguese man o' war (Physalia physalis), and use their stinging tentacles as a defense. The male has a special tentacle where it is stored sperm (called hectocotylus), and during mating this tentacle approaches female's mantle, fertilizing thousands of eggs, the male dies soon after this, and the female will carry the eggs until they hatch.

Imagine if your spouse was 40,000 times heavier and a hundred times larger than you. This is reality for the male blanket octopus, which was recently spotted alive for the first time off Australia's northern coast.

[IMG]Red-lipped batfish do not swim very well, so they use their pectoral fins to walk around the sea floor. Their dorsal fin is not needed for balance, so before reaching adulthood it changes to a single projection over their head. This structure, known as an illicium, attracts prey. The red-lipped batfish live in the waters around the Galapagos Islands and are found about 30.5 m (100 ft) below the surface.[/IMG]

Photo of the day – This exquisite little thing is called the Himalayan Cutia, which, as its name implies, occurs in Asia’s mighty Himalayas, where it inhabits broad-leafed forests in the lower-lying foothill regions. Markus Lilje captured this glorious image in Bhutan, where this particular species is always a favourite amongst both guests and tour leaders alike – and for obvious reasons!
himalayan cutie!
