Pointed-Glances

Posts random assortments of animals, science, stupid things, and art. Isn't trying to be anything in particular. Likes insects, arachnids, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and squid. Has too many potted plants. Sometimes draws.

Who I Follow

thatfishkid:

A slender mola (Ranzania laevis) washed up at the research station that I worked at this summer. These fish are gorgeous and are a pelagic fish that rarely come up into our temperate waters. This is another sure sign of an El Niño year here in California

They grow to about a meter which is nothing compared to some of the other members of the molidae family. 

This big guy is a Mola mola, also known as an ocean sunfish and they grow to weights over 1000kg! 

YOU PUT IT BACK, RIGHT? YOU PUT THAT ADORABLE CREATURE RIGHT BACK

I can’t stop seeing how adorable and happy the dog is.

This picture circulated around the internet a few years back, and a lot of people were sure it was fake. Nope, it’s real. This is a Coconut Crab, and it’s huge for a reason. Anyone who’s tried to open a coconut with simple tools can probably figure out why. Of course, like always, ARKive has great footage of these guys breaking into coconuts.

By the way, Coconut Crabs are really giant hermit crabs. The adults are big enough to not need a shell (and would have a hell of a time finding one that fits). But, before they attain their massive size, the babies still use the tried-and-true snail shell protection method that other Hermit Crabs use:
