Dumbo Octopus. My favorite! :)                                                                                                                                                                                 Mais

Dumbo Octopuses are named because of their ear-like fins coming out of their heads. They live in the extreme depths of the water, some living 7000 meters below sea level. Unlike other octopuses, they swallow their food whole! SO CUTE!

Parasites. Biomphalaria glabrata. Swiss female, early 20s, returns after surfing vacation in northern Africa. Accommodations were rustic, lots of animal and insect exposure, right on the beach. No screens. Had loose stools there, now left eye is bothering her, eyelid swollen, eye red.

All snails in the family Planorbidae have the red oxygen transport pigment haemoglobin, but this is especially apparent in albino animals.
