double tailed pipefish

« posted: 3 years ago »
I was wandering around flickr when I came across the following picture.

It shows the tail of a dragonface pipefish, and the tail has two caudal fins. It's in the wild. It must have been some sort of development disorder, but clearly wasn't bothering the pipefish as it made it to adulthood.

I wish there was a full body picture, but that's still pretty neato.

It's all about the snick!
