This Unusually Short-Lived Fish Could Hold The Secrets To Getting Old

The turquoise killifish is largely unremarkable except for how fast it ages. In just three months, it goes from a spry, young fish (left) to a decrepit, old one (right). For scientists who study ageing, the turquoise killifish could be the key to their future experiments.


Remote-Controlled Fish Suddenly Make An Aquarium Sound Like Fun

An aquarium full of fish is basically just a nature-powered screensaver that you need to feed once a day. Wouldn’t it be more exciting if there was more interaction than just tapping on the glass? With Hexbug’s new Angelfish Aquabot, you can finally take control of your robotic underwater pet, and make it do more than just behind a rock all day long.


Thousands Of Fish To Be Freed From Abandoned Shopping Centre Fish Hell

Last year, we learned about Bangkok’s New World Mall, among the most dystopian places on the planet. It’s a shopping centre in the middle of one of the world’s more tumultuous cities that was abandoned nearly 20 years ago. After a roof collapse, the mall flooded, and a population of fish thrived in newly formed ponds. Now, those fish are finally being set free.


Cruise Ships Dump Billions Of Litres Of Sewage In The Ocean Every Year

Cruise ships are not the most environmentally friendly holiday destinations on the planet. In fact, according to the latest Cruise Ship Report Card by Friends of the Earth, they might be about the worst. These floating resorts dump billions of litres of sewage into the open ocean every year. In a sense, every cruise is a poop cruise.


Underwater Monster Captured On Video For The First Time Ever

This sea creature may look like some scary 3D animation of an underwater monster, but it’s not. It’s completely real. What you’re looking at is a deep sea anglerfish known as the Black Seadevil. This sea monster’s existence shows that sometimes reality is crazier and more twisted than our scariest nightmares.


Catching Lobsters With Your Bare Hands Looks Hilariously Impossible

Because my only experiences with live lobsters are when they’re on display in tanks at restaurants or used for poses in photographs, I never knew how insanely quick they can be. And because I didn’t know they had cat-like reflexes, I never knew how hilarious it is to watch people fail at catching them. Now I know.


Fish Look Crazy With X-Ray Vision

In a perfect world, anyone who sent in a buck for those novelty x-ray specs advertised in the back of comic books would be gifted with the actual ability to see through solid stuff. In reality, we have to rely on the kindness of folks with real tech for a peek. So: Thanks, Smithsonian!


These Pygmy Seahorses Are So Good At Changing Colours For Camouflage

Video: Pygmy seahorses are super tiny creatures that have the awesome ability to camouflage. They attach themselves to colourful corals and blend in so seamlessly that I have a hard time picking them out. What’s cool is that even if the pygmy seahorses are descendants of orange seahorses, they can adapt and become purple if that’s the only coral nearby.


The Eyes Of Animals Look A Lot Like Alien Worlds

Continuing his fantastic series of macro shots of the eyes of animals, here is Suren Manvelyan’s Animal Eyes 3. The close up shots of the fish and reptiles and other animals in this series look positively alien when seen up close. I thought they were artist’s rendering of deep space planets from a sci-fi movie.


A Mobile Aquarium Steered By A Fish Named José

As mesmerising as an aquarium full of fish can be, it’s hard to not feel bad about imprisoning them in a glass cell. And maybe that’s partly what inspired Adam Ben-Dor, the creator of that awesome animated Pixar-like desk lamp, to build the Abovemarine; a glass bowl on omni-directional wheels that lets its sole swimming occupant steer it around.
