a bunch of fascinating animals you've never heard of...

... unless you've been following this blog for a while, in which case you may already have read about the sarcastic fringeheads (who are not members of a rock band, despite the wonderful name!).

The dumbo octopus, the pacu (a fish with teeth like nutcrackers, an attribute that has given rise to an urban myth guaranteed to alarm men), the pink fairy armadillo - yes, really! - visit the IFLS webpage and read all about them!

I know of the sarcastic fringeheads, and yes, the pacu.

Funny thing, the pacu was familiar to me from the aquarium business. (I used to work in a pet store, when I was a kid.)

P.S. I always click remember personal info, but the bioblog never does. I guess it's sort of an anti-NSA?

May be something to do with the way the Uni runs its site.
