Can you guess which baby fish this is? Larval fishes can look nothing like their adult form. This one lives off the coast of southern and eastern Australia. Drawing by Tom Trnski. @museumsvictoria #larvalfish#fishesofaustralia#fishesofinstagram
Illustration of the recently described Hoodwinker Sunfish, Mola tecta, from Geelong, Port Phillip, September 1873. This is an unpublished plate by Arthur Bartholomew for McCoy's Prodromus @MuseumsVictoria. McCoy didn't realise that this was an undescribed species. #FishesofOz#fishesofaustralia#fishesofinstagram#fishes#sciart

From this turtle, I learnt that there is a right time for hustling and a right time for resting. Allow me to explain.
One morning, a group of snorkelers spotted a turtle and started chasing after it. Yet for some strange reason, the turtle out swam them (even with their flippers on).
The next day they decided to just observe and this is where it got interesting. When the waves pushed against the turtle, it paddled just enough to stay afloat. But when the waves started pulling the turtle back into the sea, it paddled hard like its life depended on it.
The snorkelers on the other hand, swam equally hard whether the waves were pushing against them or pulling them in, which eventually tire them out. This is why in the end this turtle out swam every one of them.
This is why sometimes we got to go slow to go fast! Photo credits @airi_creative #ericexploreshawaii
God grant me the serenity to accept whatever fish I catch, the courage not to lie about it and the wisdom to acknowledge that no one will believe it anyway. Photo credits @cardonnorton #ericexploreshawaii
