apparently this little shit is immortal aswell:
jellyfish are pretty cool. theres one SUPER POISONOUS deep sea one thats the size of a VW, and has tentacles like a hundred feet long
yew trees are immortal too! if i remember right...
as the balls of steel required to get that close to such a beast must be heavy. also, can we make this a general weird sea animal thread now? no? well fuck you, take it up with THESE guys
THEY THROW BOMBS AT YOU!
Also, this thing has a transparent head, just so it doesn't get stuff in its eyes: http://i729.photobucket.com/albums/ww296/jacksoncresswell/090223-01-fish-transparent-head-bar.jpg
And this shrimp might not look much: http://stilton.tnw.utwente.nl/shrimp/shrimp1.jpg
but its claw punches so fast it creates a bubble that's nearly as hot as the sun and which emits light. The pressure is enough to kill small fish and shatter glass. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pistol_shrimp
The Mantis shrimp does the same, as well as having the most complex eyes of any creature - able to see up to 12 primary colours (compared to our 3) and capable of viewing the ultraviolet spectrum alone in as much detail as we see the entire visual spectrum.
Right, I'm going to bed...
beautiful poisonous flowers that want to KILL YOU
that sounds amazing then
That's tonight's nightmare sorted.
(it's actually four animals living together) is pretty awesome: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portuguese_Man_o%27_War
working together, helping each other. Then they argue and fall out and try and make it on their own but fail and they eventually recombine to fight a shark and then they make up and have a carnival.
imagine the ennui. IMAGINE IT.
