System & Species

Species: The Hairy Tree Frog

This frog can be found in Central Africa and it gets its name from the hair structures on the body and thighs of breeding males and they are arteries that work as external gills. When the frog is threatened it breaks its bones in its toes and protrudes them though its toe pads to create claws.  

Species: The Immortal Jellyfish

Overtime the Jellyfish is faced with death it reverts back to a sexually immature stage. They sink to the ocean floor while their tentacles retract and they become smaller. However this process has yet to be observed in nature only in a laboratory. 

Species: Dumbo Octopus 
This Octopus is a deep sea animal that is around 8 inches tall. They often hover above the sea flor looking for snails and other small creatures to ear. They are called the dumbo finish because its fins look like Dumbo's ears.

System: Bioluminescent Waves
The bioluminescent waves are caused by different species of bioluminescent phytoplankton, the most common kind is called dinoflagellates. There is a channel sending electrical signals in the brains of the plankton to allow them to create this illumination.
