NET CASTING SPIDER (Deinopsis subrufa) ©pbertner Net casting spider/ogre faced spider/ gladiator spider (Deinopsis sp.). This spider goes by many names and the genus can be found throughout the tropics. Deinopsis are unique amongst arachnids in their predatory methods. They remain suspended above branches or tree trunks with their trapezoidal webs stretched between their four front legs. And like this they wait. They wait until an insect passes below them, and then they spring into action. Lightning fast they drop their sticky net on their prey like a booby trap and entangle them before they deliver a quick paralyzing bite which subdues them. Their large eyes help them to detect and discriminate amongst insects. When disturbed, they stretch out and allow their cryptic colouration to help them blend in with the tree branches that they usually call home.

The Fiery Sea Slug, Flabellina goddardi, discovered in 2008 by Marine Biologist Jeff Goddard. It lays a lacy egg mass that hatch into tiny babies. The egg mass is formed that way so that each baby receives enough oxygen.

Nudibranch: Flabellina goddardi, the "Fiery Sea Slug", discovered in 2008 by marine biologist Jeff Goddard. It lays a lacy egg mass that hatch into tiny babies. The egg mass is formed that way so that each baby receives enough oxygen.
This species of Sea Slug, Flabellina goddardi, or less formally known as the Fiery Sea Slug, was just discovered in 2008 when Marine Biologist Jeff Goddard was searching for another type of sea slug. Instead of finding that one, he ended up making this discovery! After collecting the sea slug and taking it to a lab, it later laid a lacy egg mass which then hatched into tiny babies. The egg mass is formed that way so that each baby is capable of receiving enough oxygen. Just goes to show you we find new species are found every day, that's one of the very reasons why ocean acidification is so dangerous, why felling trees in a forest is bad for marine, estuaries, and freshwater systems. Please don't take away what I love most, the ocean is a magical world within our own world. It's worth saving.
Nudibranch laying eggs. Flabellina goddardi, or less formally known as the Fiery Sea Slug
The eggs themselves are rather fascinating, too. They are laid in long spirals, ribbons or clumps – as many as 2 million eggs in one sitting! Some nudibranchs are born as small but fully formed juveniles that begin crawling right away (and certain species even have shells that they later lose). Most, however, emerge as larvae that will gradually make their way to the ocean bed until they are ready for their transformation into adulthood. Written by: Michele Collet #seaslug

The narwhal, or narwhale, Monodon monoceros, is a medium-sized toothed whale that lives year-round in the Arctic. One of two living species of whale in the Monodontidae family, along with the beluga whale, the narwhal males are distinguished by a characteristic long, straight, helical tusk extending from their upper left jaw. Found primarily in Canadian Arctic and Greenlandic waters, rarely south of 65°N latitude, the narwhal is a uniquely specialized Arctic predator. In the winter, it feeds on benthic prey, mostly flatfish, at depths of up to 1500 m under dense pack ice. Narwhal have been harvested for over a thousand years by Inuit people in northern Canada and Greenland for meat and ivory, and a regulated subsistence hunt continues to this day. While populations appear stable, the narwhal has been deemed particularly vulnerable to climate change due to a narrow geographical range and specialized diet.
Narwhals are my spirit animals. Unicorn of the sea.
Narwhals Narwhals, swimming in the ocean, causing a commotion, cause they are so awesome, Narwhals Narwhals pretty big and pretty white, they could beat a polar bear in a fight, like an underwater unicorn, they've got an awesome facial horn, they're the jedi of the sea…..

Philippine Monkey Eating Eagle (Harpy Eagle)
The Philippine eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi), also known as the monkey-eating eagle, is an eagle of the family Accipitridae endemic. Among the rarest and most powerful birds in the world, it has been declared the Philippine national bird. Evolution in the Philippine islands, without other predators, made the eagles the dominant hunter in the Philippine forests. Each breeding pair requires a large home range to successfully raise a chick, thus the species is extremely vulnerable to deforestation. And a massive loss of habitat due to deforestation in most of its range as left it critically endangered. Killing a Philippine eagle is punishable under Philippine law by 12 years in jail and heavy fines.

Sparkling enope/firefly squid, generally exists in waters too deep to witness. However, Toyama Bay in Japan is a key spawning ground. Many wind up beached along the coast or caught by commercial fishers.

Toyama Bay is one of the richest fishing areas in Japan, replenished by melting snow from the 3,000-meter-high Tateyama Mountain Range. The bay is also home to copious numbers of Watasenia scintillans, or the Firefly Squid. At only three inches long, this tiny squid is equipped with special light-producing organs called photophores that emit a deep blue light. They normally live over one thousand feet underwater, but waves in the Toyama Bay often push the squid to the surface from March to June.

Firefly squid at night. I have seen these in the ocean at night in the caribbean...bizarro!
The Firefly Squid, sometimes called the Sparkling Enope Squid, is a bioluminescent life form from the deep sea. It is a member of the Cephalopod family and is related to many other squid species . It gets its name from it's flashing lights that resemble those of a Firefly. This squid is famous for the incredible light show that occurs each year off the coast of Japan as millions of these tiny animals gather to spawn. Firefly Squid spend their days at depths of about 365m. Source: Seavenger.com

Sun Hives are a hive design coming out of Germany and now gathering interest in Britain. They’re part of the world-wide movement towards ‘apicentric’ beekeeping – beekeeping that prioritizes honeybees firstly as pollinators, with honey production being a secondary goal. The Sun Hive is modeled in part on the traditional European skep hive, and is aimed at creating a hive that maximises colony health.
