The Kid Should See This

The Sea’s Strangest Square Mile

Clear underwater footage of some unusual animals, including a Hairy Frog-Fish (Antennarius striatus) eating some fish. Via KottkeDr. Joe Hanson writes introduces The Sea’s Strangest Square Mile:

Sit back and let your eyes soak up this goggle-fogging journey to the Lembeh Strait near Indonesia by Shark Bay Films. It’s known as one of the richest homes of odd coral reef creatures on Earth. Lightning-quick eels! Coral-colored, pregnant frogfish stuffing their bellies with wriggling prey! Baby cuttlefish!! BABY CUTTLEFISH!!!

More animals with camouflage skills are hiding in the archives. Plus, cuttlefish and cephalopods.
