Time to coo over baby animals who aren't charismatic megafauna




I’ve seen Caecilians for sale alongside aquarium fish. Even before doing some additional reading on what they were I found them fascinating, beautiful, and also kind of funny. They would stay at the bottom of a 20 or 30 gallon aquarium nosing around and occasionally swim in a zigzag up to the top for a gulp of air.

And, yeah, their babies are very cute.


Also, they gnaw mommy’s skin off for sustenance. D’awwwww!


From your link:

…possessing a retractable sensory tentacle…



Also, they are the only vertebrates to have protrusible eyes (on a tiny little tentacle).
