Cool Sea Creatures (Tuesdays)

Hello everyone, and welcome to a new post! I’ve decided to shave my love of sea creatures with you wonderful people. Now let’s dive into the amazing world of Marine Biology!

  • Squirm! Squidworm (Teuthidodrilus) (scientific name from en.wikipedia.org) The squidworm is a very strange creature that can be found in the deep sea. (en.wikipedia.org) It’s known as a “transitional organism” due to its benthic and pelagic characteristics. (en.wikipedia.org)

  • Ribbit! Frogfish are incredibly strange creatures that are part of the Anglerfish family. (en.wikipedia.org) They’re masters of disguise, and are usually very slow, until they attack prey. (en.wikipedia.org) They strike at speeds as fast as 6 milliseconds! (en.wikipedia.org) Frogfish live in subtropical and tropical areas of the Pacific and Atlantic, as well as the Red Sea and Indian Ocean. (en.wikipedia.org)
