Friday beautiful science

Today's Friday beautiful science comes from The Vector Site. They have a nice primer for young students on how evolution by natural selection works. One of the photos they show is of the leafy sea dragon. They look like kelp, but they're sea dragons. Look again?

I've seen these in tanks at an aquarium before, and they are truly stunning to behold. As much as I hate to admit it, Wikipedia has a pretty good description of them here.

Gorgeous creatures.. wow..

anyway,I am doing the rounds of the skeptic (and paranorma) blogs to shamelessly promote the site and book. Take a peek if you have time.

Incredible, when i first looked at your picture all i could see were some green curly leaves.. but actually they hide cute green little creatures underneath. Amazing fish indeed:)
