TGIF – All creatures great and small

Two diversity videos for this TGIF

One of my favourite scenes from that wonderful bit of BBC crack-for-marine-biologists: “Blue Planet”. This sailfish scene plays out in January/February in the same location as the afuera whale shark aggregation I have written about

And check out this gorgeous tiny goby, just 10mm long, a new species of Callogobius brought to my attention by Dr. Bruce Carlson

The sailfish is 300 times longer and 50,000 times heavier than the goby, yet both are vertebrates and both are in the same order, Perciformes. The diversity of fishes never ceases to blow my mind.
