Radial symmetries

When feeling in danger, octopuses spread out their arms, pump water through their siphon and exhibit phosphorescent pigments. Octopuses are animals with bilateral symmetry, despite these postures make them looking like radial. “My” octopus did not ink, maybe it was not so frightened after all.

Sedentary marine tube worms quickly retract their colorful bristles (visible) in their calcareous tube (not visible). Despite their exposed, radial head, they are bilateral annelids

Sea anemones are true radial animals. This anemone belongs to the Actinaria subclass

Sea urchins (Echnoidea) are true radial symmetry animals

A runaway octopus with its usual pigmentation

This sea anemone belongs to the Spirularia subclass

Sea stars (Asteroidea) are true radial animals. This specimen is crawling through a bed of peacock tail’s algae.

Of toads and frogs

Hidden in the grass, the toad awaits..

“3+1 courses, will they be my meal today?”

“Or will I swallow the whole feast?”

“Too long you waited for, Mr Toad” said the frog

I am going to push my tongue out!”
