Dragonfly nymphs are voracious predators, hunting everything from mosquito larvae to fish and tadpoles. Their lower jaw is extendable, allowing the nymph to strike with great speed.

I always have fun showing larval odonata to people who don’t know. The adults are jewel-like flitting creatures. The babies are horrible crab aliens with projectile jaws.

Nature is amazing.

PSA: because I keep seeing that shitty manipulated photo of Emma Watson on my dash. THAT PHOTO WAS PHOTOSHOPPED.  The original photo (with another from the same shoot, is from 2011 with Mariano Vivanco) are pictured above. Please don’t perpetuate this error. 

Deliberately spreading an altered image of Emma Watson which purports to show her breasts as a statement against threats of nude photo leaks is the height of hypocrisy and whoever did it should be ashamed. (x)

Thank you .

I’m pretty sure this is my favorite quote from this show ever

Just weighed myself and it’s the first time I’ve weighed above 70 kg in two years… 

I can’t look at myself in the mirror without crying… 

where did this wave of self-loathing come from? 

That’s not like you, Emily

Ship noise makes cuttlefish change color
The blare of human noise causes birds to pipe down and frogs to breed less frequently. Now, scientists have found a humanmade sound that has a far more colorful effect: The boom of a ship’s engine makes common cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) change the complex swirls of skin hues, stripes, and spots that they use for camouflage and communication. Like other cephalopods such as octopus and squid, cuttlefish rely on visual and tactile signals to communicate; there’s been little evidence so far to suggest they perceive—or respond to—sound. But when researchers placed a loudspeaker near cuttlefish tanks and played the sound of an underwater engine, the animals swam more and changed colors more often. They also raised their first pair of arms, which are used to sense water movements, more frequently, the team reports in this month’s issue of The American Naturalist.
