OK with me if we can call its mate Wilma. But I think we need to know what it is, not just his name. In case somebody thinks I made that up or it's a joke, the fact is that it is a real live animal that currently lives on our fine Earth.

ringy, you looked ....j/k I always look.

I don't know if people lost interst or just don't know. Speak up so I can claim the ultimate championship already!

But you're sort of right, ring. It likes to live in shells and it does live in the sea.



PS: if you guys give up I'll tell you and we can move on with the game.

pangolin (Manis crassicaudata) ...it took me a couple of googles to figure it out. At first glance I thought it might be some kind of lizard, but then realized it looks sort of like a little ant eater, so I googled "ant eater scales" and that was a hit; then I found the name after looking at another link.

here's one being held



Somebody thought a pangolin coat would be cool to have: I cut&pasted this from wiki:

Scale coat
Indian, Rajasthan, early 19th century
This coat has been covered with the scales of the pangolin or scaly anteater (Manis crassicaudata). The scales have been decorated in gold, and the larger have been used where more protection is required. This is the only known example of this type of armour. It originally had a helmet, also made of pangolin scales, with three plumes.
The scale coat was presented to the King George III in 1820 by Francis Rawdon, 1st Marquis of Hastinges (1754-1826), who was the East India Company's Governor General in Bengal, 1812-22.


I think this one shouldn't be too hard. But I'm using it anyway since it looks so awesome. Mother Nature is such a great designer sometimes it's hard to believe she's a she

That would be a pelagic sea slug. The only way i knew how to find that is because i remembered it wasn't a fish heh. Took forever to think sea slug tho i kept thinking it was a sea cucumber.

Sea slugs come in lots of neat colors

K, here's an easy one and a favorite from when i was a kid.

^ I love those little sand crabs ...I looked it up and they're actually called mole crabs, though we always called them sand crabs. But as a kid, hell I even do it now, I would sit on North Atlantic beaches and scoop them up with a handful of sand and let them dig down as I held it in my palm ...it tickled when they got down to my hand. One time my brother and sister buried me with about 4 inches of sand on my chest/stomache and then put about ten of those on me so they'd dig down and eat me. I wonder how they taste?

I'll go search for a new one.

PS: I found these pics below while searching for a new animal. The ones I'm used to are not much over one inch. I would NOT let these critters crawl on my chest:




OK, here's one:

At first I thought this looked a little like my son when he was born, but my son was a little larger; but I'll call this guy Mike anyway:

Good one, I believe that this is an Cantor's giant turtle. There was recently an article about it in the globe and mail.

Looking for the next animal...

I guess I'll just answer it. It's a Bathypterois. Deep sea fish. If am not mistaken, the picture I posted is the fish in its immature state.

Somebody can post their animal next.

ahhh, African Tigerfish ...Hydrocynus goliath. I didn't know they come that large, though now that I searched I see they do.



This isn't really difficult, but they're so cute I'm putting it up anyway:

While ObieX looks for a poser, I gotta tell you, those tiggys look like mutant chestnuts. Very cute.

And on the Tigerfish, would you believe it's in the same family as neon tetras? No? Same order, though. Same Family as the Congo Tetra. It's like a piranha (also a Characiform) with roid rage. Some folks think they're aquarium fish. Silly.
