Wolf Eel   Baby Wolf Eels

Galapagos Batfish Galapagos Batfish,
is a poor swimmer that “walks” on its pectoral fins. Its body is covered in gnarled lumps, so it’s no wonder this looks like it’s wearing lipstick - how else could it get a date?

In Newport, Oregon
Wolf-Eel Fry Hatch at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
Oregon Public Broadcasting's Oregon Field Guide will tell the story of biologist Evonne Mochon Collura the hatching of Aquarium wolf-eels at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18.Television producer-reporter Jim Newman covered the story on location last year, focusing on Mochon Collura and the process of pulling the egg cluster, incubating and observing the hatch of the babies. The segment will air again the following Sunday, Oct. 20 at 6 p.m. "She is very personable and verbal," said Newman of Mochon Collura. Newman, a veteran news producer with more than 27 years in television production, also produces international and national documentaries. Prior to coming to OPB, he worked at WCCO-TV where he head. Click here to read more.
Top 10 List of Strange and Freaky Fish
A few weeks ago, we asked our WaveMakers to nominate ocean creatures for our second annual Halloween-inspired Freakiest Fish competition. We offer a big thanks to everyone who submitted a nominee, and although we reviewed many excellent options, our Marine Freakiness Committee (also known as the "Barometer o' Freak") selected the nominees below as the Top 10 finalists. We had a ton of fun learning about these creatures, and we hope you do too. Now get your freak on, and click here to vote.
From the Amazon Rain Forest
Vampire Plecostomus Show their Teeth
Called the vampire plecostomus in the aquarium literature in reference to the large teeth in the upper jaw. Species of Leporacanthicus are medium-sized loricariids with a narrow, pointed head, round lower lip, and fleshy tentacles on the upper lip. Color pattern is generally dark gray to black with white to golden spots or a light gray with medium-sized black spots. Two teeth per premaxilla that are much longer than the dentary teeth. The type of L. triactis was pulled from a deep hole in a mud bank. It has been hypothesized that the enlarged teeth of the upper jaw are used to remove snails from their shells. We have observed this in L. joselimai, but specimens from Venezuela seem to have a lot of caddis flies in the gut as well as freshwater sponges. Click here to read more.
From Oregon to the Galapagos Islands
The Bat Ray
The common names for Myliobatis californica throughout English-speaking countries is the Bat Ray due to pectoral fins that resemble bat wings. The distribution of the bat ray is limited to the eastern Pacific Ocean from Oregon (USA) south to the Gulf of California and also near the Galapagos Islands. Click here to read more.
At the University of California, San Diego
Zebra Fish has Human Breast Cancer Cells. 
Scientists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine can’t look through human skin. But a small, tropical minnow fish common to aquariums has given UCSD researchers a window for viewing live, human cancer cells in action. Working with transparent zebra fish to study one of the most aggressive forms of cancer, inflammatory breast cancer, has led to their discovery of how two proteins interact in the metastasis of breast cancer. Click here to read more.
From Iceland
This Clam is 405 Years Old.
A clam that lived on the seabed in the frigid waters off Iceland's north coast has been hailed as the longest-lived animal ever discovered. The mollusc, which is thought to have lurked beneath the waves until at least the age of 405, would have been a juvenile when Galileo picked up his first telescope, Hamlet was first staged and the gunpowder plot failed to blow up King James I. The Arctica islandica clam was plucked from 80m-deep water by researchers at Bangor University in Wales, who were dredging the north Iceland shelf for the creatures. By studying their shells, the scientists hope to learn how the marine environment has changed in recent centuries. Click here to read more.
In San Francisco, California,
Peek at What's to Come at New Academy of Sciences
The newly built $484 million California Academy of Sciences was officially turned over to academy officials on Friday, and the promise of things to come was as palpable in the air of Golden Gate Park as the smell of new paint inside the building itself. The first thing that overwhelms the senses is the very entryway, which is essentially a huge wall of glass revealing the contents of the building as if it were presenting an intellectual feast. From the door, you can see two huge, exotic-looking domes, a glassed-in piazza with a roof so high it's tough to see the top, and enough aquatic pools to fill an entire shoreline. Click here to read more.
In Atlanta
Drought Leaves Parts of Georgia Aquarium Dry
With drought conditions intensifying across the Southeast, efforts to conserve water are popping up everywhere - even at the aquarium. In the name of conservation, the Georgia Aquarium, home of the world's largest fish tank, has emptied some of its watery displays. The downtown Atlanta attraction has drained a lake in an atrium, turned off a waterfall and nearly emptied a moat at an exhibit, refilling it with sand. The aquarium isn't alone: A water salute to retiring pilots at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport also has been put on hold. The efforts are some of the most unusual as the state contends with one of the worst droughts in its history. Georgia already has banned virtually all outdoor water use and ordered public water utilities to cut back water use by 10 percent. Click here to read more. Special thanks to Jay from Indiana for emailing us the link to this story.
