Biscuit sea stars 
A couple of Biscuit seastars of the species Tosia neossia (Valvatida - Goniasteridae), a well known component of the shallow rocky reef fauna of south-eastern Australia (Victoria and Tasmania), just described in 2009 (it was separated from a related species).
Tosia neossia is pentagonal in shape and grows up to 6 cm. The color is variable (as seen in the photo), frequently brown or black with discrete black, brown, pink, white or cream markings.

Meet the crabeater seal (Lobodon carcinophaga). It’s a charming specialized predator that lives on the coasts of Antarctica. It feeds almost exclusively on krill (90% of their diet) and sometimes cephalopods and antarctic fish.

Technique: The seal gobbles mouthfuls of krill and water drains through the spaces created by its teeth.

Crabeaters have little food competition, but as pups they are heavily preyed upon by leopard seals.

If you love the crabeater mug go here for a short story told by the person who photographed it.

Top two photos from The Brain Scoop. If you love natural history, museums, and taxidermy, follow them!
