The Red Gurnard or Chelidonichthys spinosus is just one of the over 100 different species of Sea Robins or Gurnards.  This quite peculiar salt water fish is normally found at the sea floor of the ocean in depths of up to 200 m (660 ft).  Like other Sea Robins, they have a set of wings and six spiny feet that actually allow them to walk on the ocean floor in search of food.  These wings are actually pectoral fins that they use to “fly” through the waters.

Damn Nature You Scary of the Day: Giant Squid Caught on Tape

After spending 400 hours over the course of 100 missions, Japan’s NHK TV crew has managed to film the mysterious sea creature for the first time ever. The squid was spotted last summer in the Pacific Ocean—at a depth of 630 meters about 1,000 kilometers south of Tokyo—during a joint expedition by the Japanese public broadcaster, Discovery Channel and the National Museum of Nature and Science. The footage will premiere in the upcoming Discovery Channel special documentary that will air on January 27.

The Foot-wide moth of the Himalayas

Meet the world’s largest moth, known as Attacus or Atlas, as it serenely sits on a road in north-east India.

With its astonishing 25cm or one foot wingspan, Sandesh Kadur was heading straight for this giant insect as he drove round the bend in the heart of the eastern Himalayas.

The moths, which do not have fully-formed mouths and survive off fat they built up as caterpillars, only live for a maximum of two weeks.
