Major suckage

Hey, you know that adorable teeny tiny fish species, Paedocypris, that I was drooling over the other day, and mentioning how cool it would be to work with?

It may be extinct already.

    The intelligent designer must not have been very happy with that design.

    The scary thing is – Think how many species are going extinct that we haven’t and won’t ever discover.

    Reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Mr. Burns is trying to woo a young lady. He utilizes a rare aphrodisiac that was extracted from the pockets of a pocket fox, “a rare species that only existed for three weeks in the 16th century.”

    Elegant, intriguing little beasties. Remarkable environment. pH of what?

    Damn. Happy World Wetlands Day, everyone.

    Paedocypris may be (or have been) the smallest fish species, but the smallest adult fish by length is a male Angler fish.

    I wonder if all the major news organizations will elaborate on the mistake… mmmm nope.
