Got a bone to pick? Let Osedax worms know! These worms can transform a whale skeleton into a homemade broth, drilling into the ex-whale with acid and licking their plates clean until there are no more leftovers to be found for to-marrow’s lunch. The red feathery plumes of Osedax bone-eating worms seen blanketing these whale skeletons are actually the gills of the female worms—the males are microscopic and live inside the tubes surrounding females, at times forming harems hundreds strong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📹 by our colleagues at @mbari_news, who discovered Osedax worms back in 2002! #montereybayaquarium #mbarimonday #osedaxshepard #venividivermi #boneappetit #havinganosteoblast #seariouslythisisskeletonsoffun

This Pacific seahorse looked down as we took the photo, and now we can't unsee that it just looks annoyed 😅 — A seahorse’s eyes can move independently from each other to scan their surroundings for predators and prey. A quick downward glance allows this seahorse to make sure it’s still in an OK corral. #montereybayaquarium #puttingthenayinneighborhood #thesadinsaddle #thewhineinwhinny #notreallythoughwewerejusttoldtoponyuponpuns

There are aliens in the Inner Space of Planet Ocean—and it’s not this Cystisoma magna amphipod! Our colleagues @mbari_newshave the scoop on this beautiful beastie of the deep: ・ Who are you calling an alien?⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ The truth is, in the deep sea, our underwater robots are the aliens. These animals—though they often look like nothing we've ever seen before—are quite at home in dark, cold deep ocean. ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ While the deep-living amphipod Cystisoma magna is highly transparent and difficult to detect under normal deep-sea illumination, they are quite visible when side-lit by the bright lights of ROV Tiburon, as seen in this close-up image. ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ #mbari #deepsea #ocean #alien #wearethealiens #underwatervideo #sealife #oceanlife #nature #wildlife #ROV #ROVvideo #amphipod #marinebiology #deepsealife #deepsea #sealife #midwater #pelagic #plankton #mesopelagic

Un-bird-lievable! Even in its mottled in-between-seasons plumage, our red phalarope is ridiculously photogenic. Red phalaropes make impressive migrations every year, nesting in the Arctic tundra during the summer and spending the rest of the year out at sea feasting on plankton. While in most bird species, males dress to impress with bright, beautiful breeding plumage, phalaropes have reversed the roles—females are larger, more colorful, and compete to win mates, while the males incubate and care for their eggs and chicks. #montereybayaquarium #bluesteel #letigre #waterandtheessenceofbeauty

🎶AWOLNATION begins playing in the background 🎶 Us: Anyone know if there's a meme that might bring awareness to the pleuston, the subset of plankton that float at the air/water interface, adrift with wind and waves suspended between two worlds?

With Facebook and Instagram down yesterday, we took a little time to practice some self-care. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Without a layer of blubber to insulate them against chilly waters, sea otters must keep their thick fur coats impeccably groomed. A million hairs per square inch trap layers of air to keep a sea otter dry and toasty, but it’s quite the feat to keep their coat in good condition—they’ll spend nearly a third of the day grooming to get ready for their next bout of foraging. Looks like this one was getting its face especially ready for Pi Day! #montereybayaquarium #seaotter #selfcare #pidaygameface
