    Obviously another fake from the people that brought us the 100-foot snake. No creature could possibly exist if I didn’t know it exists.

    I’m sorry. That was sarcastic. I feel terrible now.

    That’s an o.k. fish. But how about a fish with barrel eyes and a transparent head – so you can see it’s brains? N.B. scroll down to video

    prolly not a ‘new’ fish. glad to have a glimpse of the remaining 10% of the oceanic bio-diversity. again, do we need to plow the ocean floors for seaweed to feed cows?

    Here’s *a* link, found by googling:

    http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/80beats/2009/02/27/bouncing-psychedelic-fish-is-declared-a-new-species/

    There are about 2660 results for “histiophryne psychedelica”, though interestingly enough Google suggests: “Did you mean: histophryne psychedelica”, which has 0 hits. Nice suggestion there, Google.

    Safe to say this comes as an eye-opening surprise to everyone here but Takuan, who probably eats these for lunch…

    Anon asked me: “…again, do we need to plow the ocean floors for seaweed to feed cows?”

    If we could grow and harvest delicious and nutricious food from sub-sea farms, would you be opposed to it? There’s a lot of acreage down there…
