Just because you're little doesn't mean you don't have AWESOME teeth



This deep-sea dragonfish from the waters around Australia, one of the creatures surveyed as part of the Census of Marine Life, even has teeth on its tongue. As so neatly put by our friends at The Guardian, "It would be a terrifying animal if it was not the size of a banana."

Crunchily,
Wombat (No Relation)

I think if I lived in Australia I'd never even leave the house. It turns out, even my fellow wombats can't be trusted.

Living in south florida I can relate. A barracuda can be small and tear up skin. Great artwork here.
