The Sarcastic Fringehead Fish

The Sarcastic fringehead, Neoclinus blanchardi, is a ferocious fish which has a large mouth and aggressive territorial behaviour from which they have been given their common name. Wikipedia

When unthreatened, the fringehead's visage is fairly unremarkable. But if a marine predator attempts to dislodge a fringehead from its crevasse, the fish will race into action, brandishing its frightening Predator-like mouth at the interloper.

Air Purifying House Plants that can fight Pollutants

We found this great post from NASA documenting 6 house plants that can improve indoor air quality. These great plants can fight air pollutants with ease.

Here's a list of plants that will help you breath better in your home.

Bamboo Palm: According to NASA, it removes formaldahyde and is also said to act as a natural humidifier.



Snake Plant: Found by NASA to absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldahyde.



Areca Palm: One of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.



Spider Plant: Great indoor plant for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins or impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing formaldahyde from the air.



Peace Lily: Peace lilies could be called the “clean-all.” They’re often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they’re known for removing mold spores. Also know to remove formaldahyde and trichloroethylene.



Gerbera Daisy: Not only do these gorgeous flowers remove benzene from the air, they’re known to improve sleep by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off more oxygen over night.
