Turritopsis nutricula is an immortal jellyfish. After reaching sexual maturity, this jellyfish is able to reverse its aging process and become a polyp again. The ability to reverse the life cycle is probably unique in the animal kingdom, and allows the jellyfish to bypass death, rendering the Turritopsis nutricula biologically immortal. Lab tests showed that 100% of specimens reverted to the polyp stage.

Mohamed Babu set up the photographs after his wife, Shameem, showed him some ants had turned white after drinking spilt milk. He gave the creatures the brightly coloured sugar drops and watched as their transparent stomachs matched the food they were eating.

It's a bizarre creature that survives by eating its hosts' tongue and then attaching itself inside the mouth. The sea-dwelling parasite attacks fish, burrows into it, and then devours its tongue. After eating the tongue, the parasite proceeds to live inside the fish's mouth. There's a horror film waiting to be made about this thing. Surprisingly, the fish doesn't seem to suffer any severe impediment--just the loss of its tongue--and seems to have no trouble surviving with its new tongue ;)

© ED's_Fly_Meat_Inc My what strange eyes you have... all the better to HYPNOTIZE ME my dear! This glass frog, (Centrolene ilex) is mysterious with its marbled swirling peepers. There must be reasons to have such captivating eyes (other than just attracting mates & what not).  Maybe they distract us from peering inside its body. It's a glass frog, after all, & they are relatively transparent. I'd be a bit self conscious if folks could look right thru me!
