Have you ever wanted to spend the day with a blanket wrapped around your lazy bones?
Meet the crab that does just that. An international team of scientists lead by the Smithsonian discovered 3 new species of the little-known blanket hermit crab. It turns out that when these crustaceans are young, a certain kind of sea anemone attaches itself to the crab's rear end and grows with it. In an amazing example of a snuggly symbiotic relationship, the crabs evolved special legs that raise and lower the anemone, so it can be just like a scared kid hiding in their blanket at night (I have a lot of experience with that).

The plecos are a wide variety of catfish that normally live in South American rivers and parts of Central America. You can commonly see them sucking on things in aquariums too.
One of the most interesting things about them is the bristlenose pleco's mating behavior. Males seduce females into crevices in rocks, to show off the clutches of eggs or fry that's currently in their care. But what if they don't have any kids yet? Well, that's what biologists believe is where those bristles come in.
What do you think? Will she believe him? I mean, I sport a beard to look like I have a healthy sea anemone colony sticking out of my face. I think I read that ladies like that in @gq Magazine or @maximmag ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ -----

Bettas, or Siamese fighting fish, are kept in small jars until they're sold at pet stores. Most people keep them in tiny bowls or the same cups they were bought in. They're naturally found in Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam and in the
Chao Phraya river in Thailand, where they're listed as "Vulnerable" by the IUCN. This, as you'd expect, is due to habitat loss and pollution.

When you see them being sold in pet stores in tiny cups, try to remember that these fish are curious and need room to hide and explore in order to be healthy. They're pretty smart too and are able to recognize their owners.

Not only is today Groundhog Day and Super Bowl Sunday, it’s also World Wetlands Day. Here’s a comic about 2 animals that use wetlands at opposite ends of their lifecycles.

Salmon and eels pretty much live opposite lives. Salmon hatch in lakes and their fry flow downstream in rivers into the ocean, where they live for a few years, then return to where they were born in order to spawn. The journey seems to be quite difficult.
The American Eel, on the other hand, is born at sea, makes its way to freshwater where it lives for a number of years. Once they're ready to spawn, they'll travel back to sea.

The lifecycle of eels had eluded scientists for thousands of years. It appears salmon do not know much about it either.

Gray whales feed in an odd way. They stick their heads in the muck on the bottom of the sea floor and slurp, using their baleen to filter out mud and eat crustaceans that live on the bottom. They almost always do this while feeding on their right side, which can cause blindness in that eye as the whales get old.

Apparently orca whales find this feeding method disturbing. But they still enjoy dining on the baby grays.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

This octopus is a weirdo, even for octopuses. It's got a swim bladder, sort of. Its arms aren't all the same length! It's been known to have MILLIONS of eggs, which hatch somewhere inside the momma's body. And it's shaped like a football (in a very non-football way). Since they're pelagic (live in the open ocean), the mothers have no place to stick their offspring, so they just wear the eggs until they hatch.

Ten points to whoever can tell me where the "dreamlets" reference comes from!

I just found out about this beauty of a snake the other day, and immediately wanted to draw it—so here it is.
These gentle giants are dwindling in numbers, even though they (used to) help keep dangerous rattler numbers in check. Habitat loss due to human expansion and hunting are the main reasons for their demise.

If you're not satisfied with my crummy rendition and would like to see a photo of what one really looks like, check out @oriannesociety —they're working hard to save these serpents (and you can help them).

Time marches on like a quick breeze. With the new year comes a wonderful holiday — it’s January 7, aka, #NationalPassGasDay 💨

Humpbacks always blame it on the bubble nets. And why not? They swim in circles under a school of fish while blowing bubbles (out of their blowholes, not their butts) to force their prey upward. Then they gorge.

As we continue to #sealoffthedecade — here's a classic meeting that I'm sure happens more often than not.

Bowhead whales are the longest living mammals—they can swim around the Arctic for more than 200 years! They're big filter feeders, measuring around 50-60 feet (15-18.5 m) long. So yeah, when they pee, I'm sure a lot of marine life wonder if there's a heatwave.

Follow @underdonecomics as I #SealOffTheDecade with lots of seal-related comics!
Elephant seals, which are by far the largest pinnipeds (seals, sea lions and walruses) spend more than half of the year in the ocean. They can dive up to 5,800 feet deep and hold their breath for up to 2 hours. They migrate thousands of miles and return twice a year to their colonies to molt or find a mate. During their time onshore, the enormous males constantly fight with one another over mates and space.

It's unknown whether or not the 2 species (norther and southern elephant seals) enjoy having satellite tags stuck on their backs.

Visit elephantseal.org to learn more about these behemoths and to hear their elegant song.

Does your grandmother make a special holiday meal? Is it any good? Share in the comments!
The grandma orca in the comic apparently loves to serve up a festive ribbon seal.
More on them:
When raising pups, ribbon seals like to live on pack ice. Since they float along in the north Pacific, they have few land predators to worry about, so they've been known to leave their babies for extended periods of time while doing some deep dives.

Down in the ocean, however, it's a different story. These pinnipeds are hunted by big sharks and orcas. Speaking of orcas, don't you think it'd be a nice gift to have a smartly dressed ribbon seal from grandma for the Christmas meal?
Grandmothers are the leaders of orca pods, since they're the oldest, they remember where the best food is and pass that knowledge down to their kids.
Those are some diabolical ocean predators, I tell's ya!

Oh, and happy holidays!

Could this be Randolph the Ultraviolet-Nosed Reindeer? No, because some polar creatures (like the arctic fox, seals, polar bears), reindeer can see light on that end of the spectrum.
Scientists think they've evolved this ability (rather quickly, too, reindeer have only been roaming the top of the world for about 10,000 years) so they can see things like white fur, urine and lichen, which absorb UV light, in high contrast against bright highly UV-reflective snow. Our eyeballs protect themselves from harmful UV rays by creating snow blindness.

And we also need to protect ourselves from noticing our own pee and poo that’s all over everything!

What's a disgusting thing that's happened to you? I'll share one in the comments if you do.

I wasn't exactly sure how to write the caption for this, because beaked whales are soooo weird. So I had my friend Ben, @a_fools_experiment & @lostworldofbayside, who's a paleontologist, specializing in whale natural history write it for me. Follow him if you're not already.
Here's what he has to say:

Imagine possessing a biological sonar that could see the skull in your friends head...
I can’t, because we are Apes... Our ancestors decided to climb out of the trees millions of years ago in the heartland of continental Africa. As apes, we have 5 basic senses: we can hear, see, taste, touch and feel. But IMAGINE if we had the equivalent of a biological sonar (more powerful than any known military sonar) that we could hunt with. You could see in absolute darkness… You could find your prey hidden completely in the sand… You could even see an unborn human fetus developing in the womb... This is not science fiction. This biological sonar (echolocation) is possessed by an incredibly successful group of animals; the toothed whales.

Whales are weird… undoubtedly the strangest of ALL whales are the beaked whales. Can you imagine holding your breath for over 2 hours, whilst diving more than a kilometer below the surface of the water, hunting in the pitch black? It’s a world we are yet to properly understand, but beaked whales not only make sense of this world; they thrive in it. (Continued in comments)

Hakuna matata! The male strap-toothed beaked whale has warthog-like bottom teeth that grow out, up and back over the mouth the mouth. They'll eventually cross over each other, greatly limiting the ability to open the jaws. Since beaked whales are so elusive, nobody's seen how they feed—but slurping up squid seems to be the consensus (and plastic trash, of course). It's also a mystery about how how the males feed with their lockjaw. They most likely use their tusks for fighting.

Contrary to the comic, though, whales communicated by making squeaks and whistles through their noses, so I'm sure there actually IS a lot of mansplaining, lockjaw or not.

Bottlenose whales are members of the beaked whale group. They can grow to 32feet (9.8m). What's amazing about them is that jelly-filled, watermelon-sized melon on the males' forehead. Females have some jelly in their heads too, but not as much as males. These bulbs are probably used for communication and echolocation.

If you're wondering about the part about the tummy:
Whenever I read news about plastic being in the chambers of the stomach of beached whales that I am reminded that whales evolved from hooved mammals. So their digestive systems are a lot like cows (hence the fluttering of stomachs). Don't forget to draw your own Beaked whales and use the hashtag #decembeakedwhale —we'll see where this goes!

Beaked whales are hard to study because they're so rare. They seem to spend their lives in the open ocean, diving for hours. Since they don't have teeth (except for the males' "tusks"—but more on that in a sec), they slurp up their prey through their snouts, or "beaks." The male ginkgo-toothed beaked whale has two ginkgo-shaped teeth that just barely stick out of its lower jaw. From the handful of specimens that've been found, they're not as scratched up as other beaked whale males. So it's thought they DON'T use their ginkgo teeth for fighting each other as much as other whales. But who really knows, really?

There are all kinds of stores and videos about how curious and downright cheeky they are (as an American I’m not sure I grasp the meaning of the word cheeky, but I’m also not sure how else to describe this parrot’s behavior.

Kakapos and keas are amazingly intelligent parrots that are barely hanging on to existence in New Zealand. The kakapo, or owl parrot, is a flightless, solitary tree climber (it uses its strong beak to help get up trees) that has a intensely managed population on a couple islands in NZ. They are the longest living birds, having been recorded to live for 9 decades (with an average lifespan of 60 years). The reason for their near extinction is introduced mammals preying on them, eating their prey and taking over their habitat. Typical human BS.

The kea is the world's only alpine parrot. They're known as the "Clown of the Mountains." And like all clowns, people are both annoyed and entertained by them. For a very long time, it was rumored to attack sheep. The jury was out from the 1860s until 1992, when someone recorded a nighttime attack. Apparently, keas enjoy tearing the back of wooly sheep to slurp on some succulent fat during the lean winter months. They've gotta use that beak for something!

This endangered 4 foot (1.3m) tall bird likes to eat snakes, including venomous ones, like adders and cobras. They’ll eat other small animals as well by using their unique "bash 'em into submission" style of hunting, using those weird, long slender legs of theirs. So in other words, don't bring them in a butcher shop. Or they'll try to stomp all the snakes.

♻️ it’s America Recycles Day! So let’s recycle an old comic about recycling. Is that too meta?

By the way, you can get this and other preachy comics on a shirt, water bottle, mug and whathaveyou in the shop! There’s a big sale!

Did you know that plastic floating around in the ocean smells like food to birds? As krill eat algae, they give off the same smell that plastic gives off as it breaks apart in the ocean. When a bird eats plastic it feels like it's full, which is a risk for starvation. What's even more risky, is bits of plastic are stored in their crops, which is then regurgitated into their chicks' mouths.
It's estimated that 90% of seabirds eat plastic annually, and that number will be at 100% in the near future.
Even though so much of this waste is produced by industry that's completely out of many of our hands—what's in our hands is what we can do for ourselves. Cut out single use plastics whenever possible. And try to get plastic bags and other unnecessary junk out of our lives.
