This is the only known instance of a person getting bitten by an unborn animal. Tiger sharks are well known for the hostile environment during development. Shark courting can involve a lot of vicious biting, so the female doesn’t resist too much when a male is looking for a mate. Instead, the real evolutionary battle of who has the best genes to be passed on happens during development. 

The mother shark has up to 12 different pups in a litter, with the possibility of multiple fathers. However, she will only give birth to one. During development, the shark pups cannibalize their brothers and sisters until only the strongest one is left. The fathers whose babies were eaten not only miss out on getting to pass along their genes, but they also provided food for the offspring of the competition as well.

Hiding In Plain Sight

Cephalopods, such as the octopus shown here, have incredible powers of camouflage.

While most animals maintain an unchanging body pattern and coloration (think a praying mantis on a leaf), or a slow-transition color-change ability (think chameleons), cephalopods exhibit what is called “adaptive camouflage”.

This is the ability to quickly alter their coloration, body pattern, and even texture to best blend in with their surroundings. 

If detected, these guys can jet away in a cloud of ink as a last resort.

The male clownfish cleans and maintains his unhatched young. If he does not perform his job properly, the female will chase him off her sea anemone.

• pants for people with no butts
• cute bras in bigger sizes
•the fashion industry’s understanding that there’s lots of body types and every body type deserves to feel good in the clothes they wear

is it wrong to be in love with an electric car

No. Real life though. When I’m driving through neighborhoods or parking lots the engine cuts off, so my car is completely quiet.

It’s awesome for my gas milage. By not so awesome when people can’t move out of your way because they don’t hear you.
