The image above is that of a pink handfish that according to BoingBoing “have fins that look an awful lot like hands. Instead of swimming, they walk on these fins.” National Geographic just published their pick of 10 weirdest animals of 2010 which includes the pink handfish. My favorite among the ten is the squid worm (pictured below)
p.s. the title was inspired by the boingboing post itself.
