The episode I watched today was Shallow Seas. I am now in love with the following animals:
- Pygmy Sea Horses - these are super tiny sea horses that look almost exactly like coral. They are so flippin' adorable.
- Sunflower Starfish - they can extend their stomachs outside of their bodies, spread their stomach over their prey and use digestive juices to liquefy part of the prey.
How convenient would it be if I could just do that with a tray of doughnuts at the office? I would push my stomach out of my body, out of my cube, around the corner, up a wall and on to the doughnut desk. I could devour a chocolate frosted doughnut with sprinkles without even leaving my desk. That would rock!
I'm fascinated by the camera crews for these documentaries. Can you imagine how boring it would be to sit and wait for a sunflower starfish to eat something? I can't imagine they move very quickly - no matter how freaky their stomachs are!
