hermit crabs will use whatever shell they find - including a glass one

Scientists at the New Zealand Marine Studies Centre placed glass shells into a hermit crab tank. The crabs moved into the glass shells shortly after, allowing scientists to study the crabs. We used to keep thes as pets when I was a kid, bit the sea kind and land, tree climbing kind, & they'll live in all sorts of things, but I've never seen this.
Living in a glass house: I used to have hermit crabs, and this looks fascinating. The crabs probably decide on houses based on size & shape, not based on how well they conceal them. And in fact concealment may be irrelevant (the main function being to protect their vulnerable abdomen). Scientists at the New Zealand Marine Studies Centre placed glass shells into a crab tank. The crabs moved into the glass shells, allowing scientists to study them
Marine biologists in New Zealand used glass shells to help study hermit crabs. These crabs voluntarily moved into the hand-blown glass shells with 7-10 days of the glass shells being added to the tanks. (The scientists would not have forced the crabs in, this would not be deemed acceptable by the institution’s ethics committee that oversees all experimental design involving animals and humans)

The Firefly Squid: This petite sparkling animal has some 8000 photophores on its ventral side which flash (clearly visible to the human eye) to attract prey and to attract a mate. (Some patterns of flash have a cadence resembling a terrestrial firefly.) Indigenous to northern Japan, hundreds of millions of females come to to Toyoma Bay each spring to lay their eggs and die, completing a 1 year life cycle. by PZ Meyers, tinyurl.com/s8ooe #Firefly_Squid #PZ_Meyers #Marine_Biology

All black panthers are simply melanistic versions of other large cats (Leopard/Jaguar) and they have the same pattern but you only see it at a certain angle, when the light doesn’t reflect too much. Some individual seem completely black from most angles, others look mixed.

Melanistic panther (black panther)? Beautiful animal!!,
Black Panther – a typical melanistic color of any species of big cats. - In Latin America, a Black Panther is just a melanistic jaguar; - In Asia and Africa it’s a black leopard - In North America it may be black jaguars or pumas. By the way, it has been proven that black cats have a more balanced nervous system and faster response than other colors of cats. In the photo: Jaguar-melanistic.
"The common term of black panther can refer to either a leopard or a jaguar that has a blackish coat due to melanism. Melanism is due to a recessive gene mutation. The typical markings of the skin are still there, they are simply hidden by the surplus of the black pigment melanin." What a beautiful creature!
YES this is for real one of the rarest animals on the planet, the Black Panther. #panther #blackpanther #animals #planet #Wilde #rarest #love

Spider eats Snake [Australia]

Big Ass Snake Eating Spider. Until recently we had assumed that the natural enemies of the brown tree snake were the Red-bellied Black Snake, the cane toad, and maybe Samuel L. Jackson. But apparently you can add giant spiders to that list. Spotted in some dude’s backyard in Freshwater, Australia, eyewitness Ant Hadleigh said, “You could see the spider just chewing into it and the part which the spider was eating had gone all black and the insides were bubbling.”
Australia: where spiders eat snakes Cairns man Ant Hadleigh snapped these photos of a golden orb spider attempting to eat a brown tree snake in a Freshwater backyard, April 2012. He estimated the tree snake to be around half a metre long and the spider about the size of a hand; he holds his hand up to the spider in the video (watch only if you can stomach it): http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/8454494/giant-queensland-spider-devours-snake

The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world. The largest can come in at about 6 meters and has tentacles over 50 meters long. Pretty amazing when you think these things have been swimming around for so long.
