I love this site,especially friday cephalopods. I took a few courses in invertebrate paleontology 15 years ago and this has served to re-awaken my interest. These guys are so cool-and geeky!
Love seeing these examples. Gould wrote a bit about the way these encounters put the lie to the notion that evolution is inherently progressive, with vertebrates a “higher form” of life.
Other examples included helgramites consuming frogs, and mantids and spiders capturing birds.
Not to mention blobs swallowing entire towns and those lovable tribbles.
What, those weren’t real?

Wow, great action shot. That fish has simply been engulfed.
forgot to add this one:
one of my favs.
Did that used to be an electric blue damselfish?
Dr. Free-Ride says
The bloodthirsty sprogs heartily approve this post. And, they said to tell you, “ARRRR!”
