Great photos.
Great diversity on this little planet.

I wonder why they call the one the blob fish? LOL

I'll add one of my favorites, the Mimic Octopus:

as a crab

as a sea snake

as a flounder

It can mimic other animals as well. check out this series of vids, to see it in action.

I swear I was just looking at that website 3-4 days ago. And then, I joined this site a day or two later (maybe the same day.)

I guess it just goes to show how the brain works, that people of similar interests can have such similar yet wide-spectrumed interests.

Or, you're monitoring my browsing habits, you naughty naughty person.

I'm glad you posted different pictures than were on the site. I had known about most of them, so I hadn't gone digging around to read about them elsewhere.

If I had to pick, I think I'd have to say that my favorite is the Aye-aye. Yes, yes. It shows an amazing, almost Darwinistic transformation with its highly specialized elongated hooked "finger". I had seen some nature/science show about animals and tools a while back, and they had shown the Aye-aye, and how its adapted finger was used for digging grubs out of holes in trees. It's kind of a scary looking creature, but so pathetically frightened looking itself, that you just have to feel sorry for it. But, then- I'm the type of guy that would take a day off of work to drive 2 1/2 hours to the other side of the state, in sweltering heat with the AC turned off, just to bring a baby orphaned bat to an accepting animal shelter.

Thanks for bringing my thought over to these boards. :-) B.T.W. If you get a chance to see Discovery's "Planet Earth" series and haven't yet, it's fantastic for showing some very strange and wonderful creatures.

I'm sorry- I guess you had found a completely different website, but with almost the exact same list (I'd say maybe only 2 or 3 are different, but they seem like they might be in the same exact order).

Still fantastic though!

I'd vote for a filled star for the post, if I could figure out how to do it (still a true n00bie, I'll find it.)

Click here for the website that I had found with almost all the same animals, but different, less scary and - dare I say, almost cuter images.

The red panda on the site you posted almost looks like a cartoon character. Too funny
