    It's fascinating to me that a species since the existence of life which has not seen light; ever. Evoluted to light up? Without seeing how do they know about existence of light. You have to know something to achieve something. A mystery to me.

  31. Zixal

    Zixal2 months ago

    Honestly kind of disappointing that you didn’t talk about how the male deep-sea angler fish, after finding a mate, will attach himself to the female and practically die, becoming a part of the female’s body and losing any ability to live on its own, effectively becoming nothing but an on-demand producer of sperm for the female’s eggs whenever she’s ready to lay them. I know it’s not the topic of the video but it feels like it would have been nice to mention.
