NO CUTESY DOLPHIN, DOG OR CAT PHOTOS…WELL, JUST ONE

but first

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/wildlife/4160791/Piglet-squid-is-always-smiling.html

Bet you could never guess what kind of familiar animal this is.  Hint:  what looks like hair are legs.  It’s a squid!  A piglet squid to be precise, named because of its rotund shape.

It’s the size of an orange, lives about 320 feet deep, that is deeper than light can travel, and is a lousy swimmer because of its shape.

The body is clear except for the occasional cells containing red pigment.

Looks like a two-toed sloth to me, a contented one.

O.K.  I couldn’t resist the temptation to have at least one cute, smiling cat.

Had to put this guy, the Axolotl in again even though he’s got his own solo post.

  1. Thank you Dusky for collecting these wonders !
    Can’t help but be cheered and smile at the wonder of it all.

  2. Duck? Alpaca? Freshwater turtle? Cow fish? …some snakes, lizards, amphibians? ?

  3. Greetings, Dusky!

    Your photographs are excellent. Do you offer them for purchase, so someone can use them on their site? There’s one in particular I’m interested in for a site under construction.
