hammer time. schools of scalloped hammerhead sharks photographed in the galapagos by (click pic) alexander safanovmontgomery gilchrist, eric h cheng, norbert wu, franco banfi, todd aki, chris newbert and larry gatz.  

scalloped hammerhead populations have declined by over 95 percent in the past thirty years, largely due to the shark fin trade. this summer, scalloped hammerheads became the first species of shark to be protected by the u.s. endangered species act, one of the world’s strongest wildlife conservation laws.

I like big boats, I cannot lie.

Isabela! 
I polled my followers to see their favorite Bioware companions, and who they would like me to do next.  I’ve already done the winner, Morrigan, and here is 2nd place (1st in my heart) Isabela! It’s transparent too, because I like the shape of her hair.
Thank you all for sticking with me :)

Hypnosis Attack!!

Like their other cephalopod cousins, cuttlefish exhibit exceptional control of their chromatophoresthe color-changing pigments in their skin.

Here, this broadclub cuttlefish (Sepia latimanus) appears to ‘hypnotize’ its prey with a dazzling, oscillating display, before striking with a pair of lightning-quick tentacles.

Swimming crabs are characterized by the flattening of the fifth pair of legs into broad paddles, which are used for swimming. This ability, together with their strong, sharp claws, allows many species to be fast and aggressive predators.
