Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle
A marine iguana in the Galapagos swims to the surface after eating. Did you know that they can dive as deep as almost 100 feet and can hold their breath for up to 30 minutes?! via @adammartinphotography
This is a rare glimpse of a swimming Feather Star (Crinoid). They feed by filtering small particles of food from the sea water with their feather like arms. Their tube feet are covered with a sticky mucus that traps any food that floats past. Aren't they cool?! via @divers.ph
In the ocean, the "pod" is the basic social unit for dolphins. Dolphins are very social creatures and appear to need each other while hunting, defending themselves and their pods, and mating. Pod size appears to be related to the availability of food and the size and openness and depth of their environment. In this case, these Dolphins joined up to make a "super pod" (exceeding 1,000 dolphins). In deeper parts of the ocean there have been reports of "super pods" reaching over a mile in length, requiring merchant ships to stop while these pods pass safely by. More shallow areas of the ocean support pod sizes often less than 20 in number.
Every year as the waters cool on the southern shores, hundreds of thousands of giant spider crabs find their way up on the sandy shallows Rye and Blairgworie in Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne Australia. This happens between May - July every year and the result is a moving sea of orange crabs that blanket the shallows
Their mission is to seek shelter in the safety of the sandy shallows, moult and in some cases mate. Pretty cool, huh?
Going out of his way to save a life and give these kids a lesson in compassion. Bravo! Would you have done the same? Clip from @goatwow and sent to us by our follower @hulk_amb Thanks for helping us spread the love.
