NEW SEA CRITTERS IN THE PHILIPPINES

23 Apr

On the National Geographic website there are a couple of articles on newly discovered sea creatures. Of course, these critters have been around for a very long time, but a recent research expedition is cataloguing them in an effort to protect the Philippines’ rich oceanic biodiversity.

A beautiful purple crab.

A sea "pancake" that makes me think of a blini, sour cream, and caviar.

A sea pen. Apparently the part of the creature that looks like a quill pen is buried in the sand.

A brightly hued sea slug on a colorful landscape.
