Damn, Mother Nature: The Transparent Larva Stage Of A Moray Eel

Note: The bright white dot in the lower right is its eye above its open mouth.

This is a video of a rarely seen moray eel larva swimming around and doing its thing prior to finding a quiet, private spot in the shallows to finish metamorphosing into a young, non-transparent juvenile eel. I had no idea moray eel larva were so clear. I also had no idea there are over 200 species of moray eels spread across 15 different genera, I thought there was just the one species. It just goes to show, you learn something new every day. Granted what we learned today wasn't important, but it was interesting. And that's my favorite kind of thing to learn, because if you forget it, who cares -- it's no big deal. It's not like forgetting where you left your car keys or the nephew you were babysitting. JASON WHERE ARE YOU?!

Keep going for the video of Ursula's future little bitch.

Thanks to Tank, who's having a mid-life crisis and wishes he was a monster truck.
