This is a sea otter with hiccups.  

You’re welcome.

A SEA OTTER? Are you fucking joking?!

nah man, sea otters are awesome. they look like regular seals. but they’re actually filed with thousands of tiny otters, intent on taking over the ocean and then destroying all land-based creatures. They’re prone to the occasional hiccup.

(srsly tho jake from statefarm might not know much about sea mammals, but he might know a lot about quarks and bosons, and that’s cool)

Velvet worms arent actual worms.. They are invertebrates from phylum Onychophora. Velvet worms come in different colors, and they spit slime to hunt their prey.

i feel like velvet worms are just like these colorful sock creatures and I want to have a bath tub full of them

It’s always worth mentioning that these are believed to be the last modern survivors of the group that contained Anomalocaris.
