    These are a couple videos of a boxy but safe Volvo that's been covered in animatronic singing and dancing lobsters and a small fortune in Big Mouth Billy Bass fish. Apparently the car (officially known as the Sashimi Tabernacle Choir) has been around for years but I'd never se... / Continue →

    This is a video documenting the relationship between a pearlfish and a sea cucumber's butthole. Apparently sea cucumbers are so disgusting that predators don't want to mess with them. The pearlfish though? They are good eats. The solution? Live in a sea cucumber's butthole... / Continue →

    This is a video of two octopuses fighting over what I can only assume is the most comfortable place to sit in the ocean off the coast of Asu Island in Indonesia. I love how it seems that the one octopus has scared the other one off but in reality it's just creeping around supe... / Continue →

    This is Lobster Roll, a motorcycle customized by leather artist Timothee "Timo" Richard to look like a lobster. It cost $6,000 for Timothee's leather work alone, not including the bike itself. That makes for a pretty expensive lobster. Surprisingly, the bike was commissioned... / Continue →

    This is a video of an octopus chasing a crab. Despite a valiant effort to escape, the crab loses. Now I want crabs. I remember going crabbing in Maryland by tying a piece of frozen chicken to a string and slowly pulling the crabs out of the water. One time a crab pinched me... / Continue →

    This is a video of a cuttlefish using an awesome laser lightshow (technically not lasers or lights, but colorful cells expanding and contracting) to stun a crab so it can eat it. I love crabs. Thankfully, I don't have to stun them to eat them, just wait till it's my birthday ... / Continue →

    And he used himself as bait! Just kidding, that only works with sharks and the Kraken. This is the 12-pound, estimated 60-70 year old lobster caught by biologist Forrest Galante off the coast of Anacapa Island, California. Damn, could you imagine-- "Eating the tail of that ... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstrating the robotic octopus built by the Foundation of Research and Technology-Hellas. You know, because regular octopuses weren't scary enough. They all look like alien penises to me. "You spend a lot of time thinking about alien penises?" I write Sta... / Continue →

    This is the 18-inch mantis shrimp (which are neither shrimp nor lobsters but similar to both) a fisherman pulled out of the water while fishing off a dock on the Indian River Lagoon in Florida. Apparently this is an exceptionally sized species of mantis shrimp too. I'd say, t... / Continue →

    This is a pretty poor quality video (I dunno, maybe next time get somebody else to hold the camera if you've got the fishing rod) of a Goliath grouper (which can grow to 10-feet and 790-pounds) eating a 4-foot black-tip shark in a single bite. For reference, it probably would ... / Continue →

    This is the wooden sculpture carefully carved and assembled by Japanese artist Ohtake Ryousuke to move like an actual lobster. If that showed up my plate at Red Lobster I would definitely try to butter it and poke its eye-stalk with my fork until my mom threatens one more time... / Continue →

    King crabs: they're delicious. And this lavender one was recently spotted in a shipment to Japan from Russia. Why is it lavender? Is it even lavender? Personally, I think it's more of a cornflower blue, but that's just me and I'm willing to argue about anything. How many l... / Continue →

    This is a composite photo of the crazy elbowed squid (actually a bigfin squid) captured in that video taken by the Shell Oil Company near one of it's drilling platforms. You remember that video? Of course you don't, I posted that almost five years ago. A lot has happened sin... / Continue →

    This is the unidentified mystery fish caught by fisherman Sapar Mansor off the coast of Tudan, Malaysia. I'm not sure I would eat it, but I would. I'll eat almost anything, including playground sand. The creature has two tusk-like spikes near its mouth and measures over one ... / Continue →

    These are a series of 3-D resin paintings by DeviantARTist Kenglye. He creates the 3-D effect by pouring a thin layer of resin, painting that layer, pouring another thin layer, painting that one, and repeating until he's built up a real looking fish or octopus or turtle. Most... / Continue →

    Dammit dog, what part of 'Cheese!' don't you understand? This is the 5.5-meter (~18-foot) giant oarfish a snorkeler spotted just offshore Catalina Island in California. It was dead. Giant Oarfish normally frequent depths as deep as a kilometer (~2/3 of a mile) and are only s... / Continue →

    These are the crabs arranged to look like a centipede by some unknown dining establishment in the world. I'm guessing somewhere in Japan. Would you eat it? Of course you would, they're just crabs. I would, but I'd have to close my eyes when it came and have a friend put all... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like a cross between a shark, killer whale, cowboy boot and a sea turtle with an unfortunate chin penis, is an artist's impression of Entelognathus, an ancient fish paleontologists believe may be the missing link between the extinct bony armored Placoderms and... / Continue →

    This is a series of shots from underwater photographer Todd Bretl of glowing Bobtail Squids (Sepiola atlantica) captured in their natural habitat. What is their natural habitat? Apparently pure blackness. Per Wikipedia: Bobtail squid have a symbiotic relationship with biolu... / Continue →

    Meet Lola, a 4-pound, 10-year old lobster caught off the coast of Massachusetts with a regular claw on one side, and five freaky little nonfunctional claws on the other. MUTANT! *calling Professor X* Seriously bro, you have to let us kill and eat this one. "This claw deform... / Continue →
