WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

*puts up bat signal for science side of tumblr*

I read that this is bioluminescent plankton. 

nah man that’s a tiny kaiju

This is actually the bioluminescence from an ostracod, which is a kind of plankton. The fish in the gif is trying to eat it, but the ostracod bursts out this light to scare its predator and cause it to spit the plankton out. You can watch the video that this is from over here.

Thank you science side of tumblr!

Just one of those things that I always wondered about. Stags and otters are all very well, but what if you end up with a tiny chameleon or giant blue whale? I mean, it could be a giant tub of nutella…

Anyway, so glad I got around to doing this pic -drawing the less attractive animals was awesome.

Popped it up on Redbubble because they have tote bags and cushions now which is just wow - can grab it also on cards or posters - check it out here!
