Sex Changes, Vampires, Cookies, and McDonalds. Oh My!

Oysters:

- They filter large amounts of water in order to feed and breath essentially exchanging O2 and CO2 with water
- They produce beautiful ass pearl which humans where as jewelry...
- The can change their gender in order to meet whatever mating needs required.

Vampyroteuthis infernalis (Vampire Squid From Hell): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3PvvT_Ktx8


- Able to live and breathe normally in oxygen saturations as low as 3%
- engulfs itself in a scary, sharp membrane to appear dangerous when threatened. 
- Uses it's light up organs to produce a luminescent light, making predators be like WTF?!

Isistius brasiliensi (Cookiecutter Shark): 
 

- Has a deceptive, natural camouflage when viewed from below because it's belly is the only thing noticeable and it looks like a small fish but it's actually twice the size.
- Gets the name "cookiecutter" because it leaves circular gouges in it's victims. 
- Has a bioluminescent green belly.  

Mcdonaldization: 

Mcdonadization is a system where small businesses that a typically doing well, are ran out of business (killed) by larger Companies, not because of the product is any more superior but because of their deeper pockets. Much life the food chain where the bigger fish eats the smaller fish simply because they're bigger. :)
