    This is the 18-inch mantis shrimp (which are neither shrimp nor lobsters but similar to both) a fisherman pulled out of the water while fishing off a dock on the Indian River Lagoon in Florida. Apparently this is an exceptionally sized species of mantis shrimp too. I'd say, t... / Continue →

    This is a video from an unmanned underwater rover being operated by a team aboard the research vessel Nautalis of an unusually large Dumbo octopus (named after their giant 'ears') roaming the ocean's depths in the Caribbean Sea. Researchers estimate the octopus to be almost fi... / Continue →

    These are 23 examples of makeup artist Laura Jenkinson turning her own lips into different cartoon characters (plus Cookie Monster). Some of them were really weird to look at. Like, I had to keep reminding myself I was staring at lips. Did I ever tell you about the time I ha... / Continue →
