We all love the ocean and even explored the universe and examined stars and planets, but in fact we don’t even know everything about our own ocean floor is all about. We are already in a process of killing it and all the creature in it without knowing what are the creatures below our islands that has been acknowledged. Here are a few of its wonderful and monster like beings below we did not see all the time :

1. Tremoctopus (Blanket Octopus)

Tremoctopus (Blanket Octopus)

Magical attributes are:

  • Immune to Portuguese man o’ war.
  • Females reach up to 2 meters in length.
  • Males have a special third “right” arm that stores sperm.
  • Males die shortly after mating, because said arm detaches from the male and crawls into the mantle of the female in order to fertilize the eggs.

2. Glaucus Atlanticus (Blue Dragon Seaslug)

Blue Dragon Seaslug

Scary facts about this cute creature:

  • It feasts on Portuguese Man o’ Wars.
  • Delivers painful sting to any human who dare touches it.
  • Consumes poisonous organisms and stores their poison for its personal use.

3. Ctenophora (Comb Jelly)

5.Glass Squid

6. Northern Stargazer

Northern Stargazer

The Northern Stargazer is found between the states of North Carolina and New York, often between the depths of 100 to 120 feet (36m). Its mouth faces up in order to ambush its prey while hiding under sand. Aside from the scary face, the Stargazer can also deliver an electric shock to its prey.

7. Nudibranch

Nudibranch

Nudibranch are cool in a way that they shed their shells after their larval stage. Which, in turn, gave them the name Nudibranch, which comes from the Latin word nudus, naked, and Greek brankhia for gills. Aside from being one of the most colorful creatures on earth, Nudibranch leverages chemicals for their protection. Toxins that can induce hpotension in a predator and such.

8. Odontodactylus Scyllarus (Peacock Mantis Shrimp)

Odontodactylus Scyllarus (Peacock Mantis Shrimp)

Call it beautiful and fancy, but many consider it as a dangerous pest. They are predators whose size span from 1.2 to 7.1 inches (3 to 18 cm) with the belly of a beast. They will feast upon other inhabitants of tanks (mind you, because of their color, people collect them and treat them as pets!). Since they can grow as large as the size of an average banana, bigger specimens are also known to ram into aquariums.

9. Neoclinus Blanchardi (Sarcastic Fringehead)

Neoclinus Blanchardi (Sarcastic Fringehead)

Aside from the scary appearance and funny name, you need to know that the Sarcastic Fringehead is overly territorial. It will wrestle intruders (and by wrestle, I mean kiss with that beautiful lips) to achieve dominance. They grow up to 12 inches long (30 cm). Perfect pet for baby demons

10. Scaly Dragonfish

A baby dolphin with its umbilical cord still attached was found beached near Montevideo city, Uruguay. Luckily, a rescue organization got involved and and nursed the little guy back to health.

Zukhro, an employee of a Russian city zoo, walks with Vadik, an 18-month-old male lion.

This little orange seal has been ostracized by his fellows for being ginger. Also, unfortunately, he is almost blind.

He was found waiting for his mother under a log on Tyuleniy Island in Russia. He was picked up and taken by staff at a dolphinarium to keep him from anymore emotional stress.

Good news though, the seal is doing much better. Now named Nafanya – after a lookalike Soviet cartoon character – the seal was given VIP treatment and has now moved into a plush new home at the country’s leading aquarium.

Ten Fascinating Facts About Cats May 13, 2011

Tags: , , ,

10. Ambidexer-Cat?

You probably never thought about a cat as being either left- or right-pawed, but over 40 percent are either 
lefties or righties. That means there’s quite a few out there who are ambidextrous. Luckily for them, they can 
probably operate the can opener with both paws …
 
9. Warm or Cold?:
 
Food that is. Cats don’t like their food too hot or too cold. They like it just right. And for them, 
just right is room temperature, just like their prey would be in the wild. Cats are indeed the Goldilocks 
of the animal world. 
 
8. In Living Color:
 

 
Cats see in color, so your new paisley frock in orange, purple, and yellow won’t be lost on them.They also have 
fantastic night vision, and only need one-sixth of the light humans require to see. So don’tgo getting your cat
night-vision goggles.

 7. What’s in a Name?  A group of kittens is called a “KINDLE” (yes, just like that fancy new electronic book device available now) while a group of adult cats is called a “CLOWDER.”  

6. Meow? 
We all know the meow sound, whether it’s questioning, scared, happy, or imperiously demanding dinner. 
Curiously, cats only meow at people, not at other cats.

5. Four-Legged Mood Rings 
Cats are highly intuitive creatures, and they are more than able to pick up your mood, especially from your 
tone of voice. They know when you’re yelling at them (though they often don’t seem to care). If you need your
cat to calm down, try speaking to her in a soothing, loving voice. You’ll be amazed.   
 
4. Lofty Beginnings 

Ever wonder who invented the cat door? It was Sir Isaac Newton. Perhaps he was vexed by his cat wanting in 
and out all the time and disturbing his work, so he did something about it—much to the relief of cat 
loverseverywhere.  
 
3. It’s All in the Fall 
Cats really do land on their feet. In fact, they all fall in the same way. First they rotate their head, then
twist their spine around, followed by a rear leg alignment and finally they relax into it and arch the back, 
thus lessening impact. But please, don’t experiment with this at home. Take our word for it.  
 
2. Baby Machines 

Unless you want a “clowder” of cats cluttering your home, spay, and neuter your furry feline. Just one pair
of cats and their kittens can produce 420,000 (!) offspring in a mere seven years. 
 
1. Individuality

 
Like human fingerprints, cats have their own built-in unique tag of telling them apart—their nose! The nose 
pads of cats are all uniquely ridged, meaning no two are the same.
