      There's probably a coupla million species of animals on Earth (estimates vary and this doesn't include extinct species). You probably know... maybe 300 species or so? So there are several millions of species of animals you don't know of :)

    Oh god, I'd love it if you ever did an episode on Poodle Moths. They are sincerely the strangest and most evocative creatures. They have evocative mannerisms. Seem to display emotions, they have brows ffs. Hold things with their hands. Sit down with their legs hanging, prop their elbows, hands on chin. I kind of really think they're fairies, or definitely one of the more recent additions to the planet because they're not moths lol.

    Seeing an animal wearing its children like a constantly writhing blanket made me picture what the human equivalent might look like. Anyway, has anyone seen that comic panel where a criminal declared that the heroes could not possibly take him down due to the fact he duct taped multiple babies to his body?

    The animal featured in this episode is amazing. It looks different to others I know. It swims and doesn't. And its parenting with the narrator is among the funniest entertainments.

      @Andre Ware Took a few city guys camping while I was in the Navy... multiple occasions... almost always involved alcohol... LOTS of stories...
      Among the first times, rather than risk them getting themselves scared into injury, I thought it best to camp in a small grove (they considered a forest) that bordered a Dairy Farm... AND I got to see first-hand, a drunk fat guy in a sleeping bag, swearing he was coming to answer the door because one of the cows had gotten out... and the bell was dinging periodically as it wandered a little, stopped and nibbled grass... wandered a little... stopped to eat grass... etc...etc...etc...
      SO... yeah... I rather agree with that bit in the vid'. I wasn't drunk enough to forget it, nor to go after the cowbell like a doorbell... BUT I was certainly drunk enough to be entertained. ;o)

    Seems redundant to have an arm that can slice your opponent in half, then a different appendage to poison them.

    Watching your videos makes me think that there is no such thing as an empty seafloor. There's always something trying to look like an empty piece of the seafloor.

    I found these guys in Alameda, CA while looking for bubble snails carrying schistosome parasites (as they do) and spent about an hour just watching them.
    Monterey Bay Aquarium usually has a display of them.

      @kohljackal I found them all along Shoreline Drive, across from all the apartments and condos. They hang out among the seaweed in the shallows.

    You are the most comically intelligent analogist I have ever known, (not that I’ve known any at all). I will never stop learning or laughing at the information you provided about these beautiful creatures that we know so little about. Did I mention that I love you? I mean, not in a wrong way but you know what I mean.
