If the newborn grows out of the pouch or dies, the kangaroo's hormones will send messages to the egg to begin development. so they can have a teenage Joey, a nursing Joey, and a Joey in stasis all at once."

    The overwhelming majority of Greenland sharks are blind as a result of a parasite that eats and replaces their eyes. Because their eyesight is poor anyway, the parasites wave like bait and can have the same effect as anglerfish, and sharks are super slow, this may be one of the few ways they catch their prey living.

    #8. All the deep sea anglerfish you see pictures of with the Lil lights hanging over their heads? They’re all female.

    Males are tiny and born with a dreadfully weak jaw and a voracious appetite. They go after a female and, divided between hunger and lust, bite her. She then secretes an enzyme that binds the male to her. She slowly absorbs them into her body, leaving only their lil testicles behind so she can fertilize her eggs immediately when she wants to. Some females have rows and rows of small testicles on their bodies from absorbing numerous males. And you thought your love life was strange, didn't you? But no shaming of quirks.
