Hatchet Fish
by Aniket Kumar
  • When in danger some species of the sea cucumbers discharge sticky threads that can entangle predators.
  • The Palauan people of the south Pacific squeeze the sea cucumber until it squirts out its sticky thread and then wear them on their feet as protection.
  • The eyes of hatchet fish are so large that they can only point upwards so they have to catch all their food from above.
  • The hatchet fish has light-producing cells on its belly, which give out a pale blue light that looks like daylight shining through the water.

Funda of Fundas

Unusually for marsupials, the wombat's pouch faces backwards - it wouldn't be much fun for the Joey if its pouch kept filling up with dirt when mum was digging!
