BABY: Octopus (genus Octopus)

From Larva to Livin' Large - The Featured Creature

The groundbreaking study using the latest diving technology is said to have "revolutionised" thinking about deep-sea life. A group of creatures thought to be close to the missing evolutionary link between backboned and invertebrate animals are among those captured by the team on the MAR-ECO international research programme A Bathypelagic Ctenophore from the benthic boundary layer, which was found attached to seafloor by adhesive tentacles

The little Sea Urchin on top is quite unusual. It was discovered by a research vessel near New Caledonia at a depth of 1000 ft.

Body Worlds – Skin Man

A Mother’s Gift to Anatomy: A woman in labor was hit killed by a carriage as she walked in front of the San Carlos Royal College of Surgery, in 18th-century Madrid. Nobody knew her name or claimed her body with unborn child. This was a windfall for surgeons in training at the school, which was short of corpses on which to learn anatomy. Body handlers applied mud then created filled a mold with wax. Today it remains the most striking sculpture at the Complutense University School of Medicine.

How Dogs Know What You're Feeling

In both Africa and South America, large army ants are used as surgical sutures. The wound is pulled together, and the ant grabs the edges of the wound with its mandible. Then, the body is cut off from the head of the ant. The head stays attached to the wound as a suture until the wound is healed. This gives me the shivers but look how nice that stitch is.

In some parts of the world ants are used to close up wounds!
