WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

DUDE THATS A BABY KAIJU

pew, pew!

SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR URGENT

YOU CALLED!?
This fish is not actually spitting bioluminescent spit…it’s spitting out its bioluminescent food! Some clever scientist has put some bioluminescent ostracods in a tank with some little fish. When agitated, these ostracods (tiny shirmpthings) secrete chemicals that, when combined, emit light.
Why?
You’re seeing why right here. Just before the fish spits it out, those light chemicals are filling up the belly of the fish. Now, it isn’t poisonous or anything…but the fish wants NOTHING TO DO WITH IT because the fish has predators too. 
So yeah, if you’re a little fish and suddenly you’re FREAKING GLOWING, your lifespan has just gotten a lot shorter. 
As soon as the fish realizes that there’s light emanating from its belly, it pukes out the glowing juices (and the little shrimp). You can actually see the ostracod in this gif swimming away down toward the bottom of the tank happy as a clam…or a shrimp. 
Evolution is AWESOME.

This is why you gotta follow SciShow on Tumblr.

I know some kids who HAVE to see this.

Text 4 Aug 76,136 notes I’m trying to prove a point that there is a fan base for a solo Black Widow movie. Please reblog if you’d watch it.

Who wouldn’t want to see that?

I believe I may have feelings about a Black Widow movie.

Somebody tried to stump this squid by putting it in front of a background that its camouflage mechanisms could never hope to imitate…
So it turned itself transparent.

stick it to the man, Squid.

I welcome our squid overlords.

MY ORIGINAL DESIGN WONDER WOMAN IS DONE!  Designed by me and created by my wifey.  And somehow I got a little red dress out of it, too. The entire costume (wig and all) will premiere on 4th of July at CONvergence, I am so excited!  

The only thing missing is the yellow piece but I really like this better.  Man the wifey knows best  <3

Own your awesome, cosplayers of the world!

Yes!

I saw this at CONvergence!  It was AWESOME!
