While ordinary vegetable cucumbers cost $3 per kilo, sea cucumbers can cost over $3,000 per kilo. These animals are prized as a delicacy in Asia, and are used by pharmaceutical companies to treat diseases like cancer. Unfortunately, over-harvesting now threatens many sea cucumber populations. ------------------------------------------------------ #SeaCucumbers #Expensive #BusinessInsider Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, retail, and more.

Why Sea Cucumbers Are Dangerous
 
14:01
Sea cucumbers are rather inconspicuous animals and are certainly not the most well-known sea creatures. They are nonetheless of enormous importance for the oceans and us humans. But don't get too excited because despite their harmless appearance they are actually not as safe to handle as one might think. In this video, you find out why.

Who Lives In the Deepest Place On Earth?
 
09:57
Who lives at the bottom of the Mariana trench? Scientists have finally revealed the Mariana Trench mystery. Take a look at the deepest creature ever caught there! The curiosity of human nature makes people look for secrets and mysteries far away from home, like in outer space or on other planets. Scientists have mapped only 5 percent of our planet’s seafloor. And if you’ve ever considered the ocean plain and boring, the video you’re about to watch will blow your mind. TIMESTAMPS The Mariana Trench is the deepest area 0:45 The deepest-living fish in the world 2:40 “Ethereal snailfish” 3:12 A mysterious metallic sound 3:38 Deep sea cucumber 5:50 The deep sea anglerfish 6:20 The barreleye fish 7:13 The Champagne Vent 8:05 The 4-inch amoeba 8:35 SUMMARY The Mariana Trench is the deepest area you can find on Earth. Although almost everybody has heard the name, we have shockingly little data about this dark underwater place in the western Pacific Ocean. It’s a monumental task mapping the seafloor and taking pictures when the water pressure at the bottom is more than 1,000 times greater than that at the surface! The Mariana Trench houses the deepest parts of our planet.

Why Cats Are Sooo Scared of Cucumbers?
 
10:07
Why cats are afraid of cucumbers? You’ve seen all the memes, gifs, and videos of cats literally leaping into the air in fright at the sight of a cucumber. So what’s the deal anyway? Well, we’re as puzzled as you are, so let’s see what the experts have to say about this “cat vs cucumber” phenomenon! TIMESTAMPS: How it usually goes 1:25 The first theory 3:33 The second theory 4:16 Can it do any damage on cats psyche? 5:25 What can happen to a cat in response to this 6:25 The symptoms your cat might be suffering from stress 7:01 #catcucumber #catfear #catbehavior Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music Safety Net - Riot SUMMARY: - So, it usually goes like this: a pet owner will stealthily place a cucumber behind their cat’s back as the animal is eating out of its food bowl. Once the cat turns around and notices this strange green elongated thing lying there on the ground, it’ll either jump up in fear and run away. - Certified animal behavior specialist Dr. Roger Mugford puts it down to simply being caught off-guard during a moment of vulnerability. - Another theory is that cats mistake cucumbers for snakes, the feline’s true mortal enemy. - Startling them for fun can do some serious damage on their psyche. You’re basically tricking them into thinking there’s a deadly predator or danger nearby, which causes them psychological harm and stress. - If cats feel threatened, particularly at their food stations, they can lose their appetite. And when cats don’t eat, they can develop life-threatening fatty liver disease. - The common sickness behaviors are vomiting, refusing to eat, diarrhea, and urinating outside the litter box. - Furthermore, they may injure themselves, break something, or become more stressed. Our furry feline buddy is a sensitive being, which is why you should be a considerate pet owner.

Worms and Sea Cucumbers - Reef Life of the Andaman - Part 23
 
03:47
Polychaete worms and sea cucumbers. Part 23 of my DVD, "Reef Life of the Andaman", available at http://www.bubblevision.com/marine-life-DVD.htm or view the whole 2-hour video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ncUVddkK3Q First we look at a feather duster worm, Sabellastarte sp., at Shark Cave in the Burma's Mergui Archipelago, and a hard tube coco worm, Protula bispiralis, at Richelieu Rock, north of the Similan Islands in Thailand. These polychate worms are rooted statically to the reef and feed by filtering plankton from the water with their tentacles and passing it into the central mouth. Colorful Christmas tree worms, Spirobranchus giganteus, are common at many dive sites throughout the Andaman Sea. They embed themselves into porous stony corals and are highly sensitive to disturbances. At the slightest sign of danger, the worm retracts into the coral and seals the opening. Also seen in the Mergui Archipelago, the large burrowing sea cucumber, Neothyonidium magnum, a type of Echinoderm, is another filter feeder. It roots itself into the substrate and holds its outer tentacles in the current. When it has captured sufficient plankton the tentacles reach down toward the centre, allowing the smaller inner tentacles to scoop the food into the mouth. The Graeffe's sea cucumber, Pearsonothuria graeffei, is common at shallow depths in the Andaman Sea, for example at dive sites around Racha Yai. Its mouth contains 25 adhesive black tentacles which it uses to walk over the reef and to pick up food from the substrate. The mouth of the amberfish sea cucumber, Thelenota anax, contains 18 tentacles and is underneath the body. After digesting what it can from the material it has ingested from the seabed, the waste products are expelled at the anus. The sea cucumber also breathes through the anus by sucking water in and out. The following closed captions/subtitles are available by clicking the CC button under the video: NARRATION / COMMENTARY: - English - German (Deutscher Kommentar) - Spanish (Narración en Español) MARINE LIFE & DIVE SITE NAMES - Dutch (Nederlandse Namen) - English - German (Deutsche Bezeichnungen) - Thai ( ชื่อภาษาไทย & จุดดำน้ำ ) Please get in touch with me if you would like to help translate the narration or marine life names into other languages.

Why This Simple Thing Is So Crazy Expensive
 
10:35
When most people hear “sea cucumber,” they probably imagine a pimply green fruit that just happens to grow underwater.

So chances are that whatever color, size, or shape you imagine, you'll find a sea cucumber within these parameters. - For centuries, people in Asia have considered these animals a rare delicacy. Due to the high cost of these creatures, only the richest people could afford to enjoy this treat. - There are also extremely rare "albino" ones. One 7-ounce white cucumber can cost approximately $16,000. - The orchid mantis can hide from potential predators as well as lure their prey into a beautiful but deadly trap. - What most of us call walking sticks, stick bugs, or stick insects are actually known as phasmatodeans in the entomology world. These strange-looking critters look exactly like twigs. - Sea Sponge can feed on the filtered food particles. If something goes wrong and a sponge's cells get broken apart, they can always get back together and create a new sponge. - Sand dollars are, in fact, extremely flat sea urchins. They use spines to catch and move their prey, such as crab larvae and plankton, into their mouths. - Dead-Leaf Moth’s wingspan reaches an incredible 6 inches. And as you may have already guessed, its favorite pastime is pretending to be a dead leaf. - Giant Tube Worms resemble some exotic underwater flowers. Tube worms depend on bacteria that live inside their bodies to feed.

This Adorable Sea Slug is a Sneaky Little Thief | Deep Look
 
04:11
Take the PBSDS survey: https://to.pbs.org/2018YTSurvey Explore our VR slug and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/deeplook Nudibranchs may look cute, squishy and defenseless ... but watch out. These brightly-colored sea slugs aren't above stealing weapons from their prey. SUBSCRIBE to Deep Look! http://goo.gl/8NwXqt DEEP LOOK is a ultra-HD (4K) short video series created by KQED San Francisco and presented by PBS Digital Studios. See the unseen at the very edge of our visible world. Explore big scientific mysteries by going incredibly small. The summer months bring low morning tides along the California coast, providing an opportunity to see one of the state’s most unusual inhabitants, sea slugs. Also called nudibranchs, many of these relatives of snails are brightly colored and stand out among the seaweed and anemones living next to them in tidepools. “Some of them are bright red, blue, yellow -- you name it,” said Terry Gosliner, senior curator of invertebrate zoology and geology at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. “They're kind of designer slugs.” But without a protective shell, big jaws or sharp claws, how do these squishy little creatures get away with such flamboyant colors in a habitat full of predators? As it turns out, the nudibranchs’ colors serve as a warning to predators: These sea slugs are packing some very sophisticated defenses. And some aren’t above stealing weapons from their prey. Gosliner and Brenna Green and Emily Otstott, graduate students at San Francisco State University, were out at dawn earlier this summer searching tidepools and floating docks around the Bay Area. They want to learn more about how these delicate little sea slugs survive and how changing ocean temperatures might threaten their futures. Nudibranchs come in a staggering variety of shapes and sizes. Many accumulate toxic or bad-tasting chemicals from their prey, causing predators like fish and crabs to learn that the flashy colors mean the nudibranch wouldn’t make a good meal. --- What are nudibranchs? Nudibranchs are snails that lost their shell over evolutionary time. Since they don’t have a shell for protection, they have to use other ways to defend themselves like accumulating toxic chemicals in their flesh to make them taste bad to predators. Some species of nudibranchs eat relatives of jellyfish and accumulate the stingers within their bodies for defense. --- Why do nudibranchs have such bright colors? The bright colors serve as a signal to the nudibranch’s predators that they are not good to eat. If a fish or crab bites a nudibranch, it learns to associate the bad taste with the bright colors which tends to make them reluctant to bite a nudibranch with those colors in the future. --- What does nudibranch mean? The word nudibranch comes from Latin. It means naked gills. They got that name because some species of nudibranchs have an exposed ring of gills on their back that they use to breath. ---+ Read the entire article on KQED Science: https://www.kqed.org/science/1929993/this-adorable-sea-slug-is-a-sneaky-little-thief ---+ For more information: Learn more about Terry Gosliner’s work with nudibranchs https://www.calacademy.org/staff/ibss/invertebrate-zoology-and-geology/terrence-gosliner Learn more about Chris Lowe’s work with plankton http://lowe.stanford.edu/ Learn more about Jessica Goodheart’s study of nematocyst sequestration https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/ivb.12154 ---+ More Great Deep Look episodes: From Drifter to Dynamo: The Story of Plankton | Deep Look https://youtu.be/jUvJ5ANH86I For Pacific Mole Crabs It's Dig or Die | Deep Look https://youtu.be/tfoYD8pAsMw The Amazing Life of Sand | Deep Look https://youtu.be/VkrQ9QuKprE ---+ See some great videos and documentaries from PBS Digital Studios!

Sea Urchins Pull Themselves Inside Out to be Reborn | Deep Look
 
03:23
Conceived in the open sea, tiny spaceship-shaped sea urchin larvae search the vast ocean to find a home. After this incredible odyssey, they undergo one of the most remarkable transformations in nature. SUBSCRIBE to Deep Look! http://goo.gl/8NwXqt DEEP LOOK is a ultra-HD (4K) short video series created by KQED San Francisco and presented by PBS Digital Studios. See the unseen at the very edge of our visible world. Get a new perspective on our place in the universe. Explore big scientific mysteries by going incredibly small. * NEW VIDEOS EVERY OTHER TUESDAY! * Every summer, millions of people head to the coast to soak up the sun and play in the waves. But they aren’t alone. Just beyond the crashing surf, hundreds of millions of tiny sea urchin larvae are also floating around, preparing for one of the most dramatic transformations in the animal kingdom. Scientists along the Pacific coast are investigating how these microscopic ocean drifters, which look like tiny spaceships, find their way back home to the shoreline, where they attach themselves, grow into spiny creatures and live out a slow-moving life that often exceeds 100 years.“These sorts of studies are absolutely crucial if we want to not only maintain healthy fisheries but indeed a healthy ocean,” says Jason Hodin, a research scientist at the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Laboratories. http://staff.washington.edu/hodin/ http://depts.washington.edu/fhl/ Sea urchins reproduce by sending clouds of eggs and sperm into the water. Millions of larvae are formed, but only a handful make it back to the shoreline to grow into adults. --- What are sea urchins? Sea urchins are spiny invertebrate animals. Adult sea urchins are globe-shaped and show five-point radial symmetry. They move using a system of tube feet. Sea urchins belong to the phylum Echinodermata along with their relatives the sea stars (starfish), sand dollars and sea slugs. --- What do sea urchins eat? Sea urchins eat algae and can reduce kelp forests to barrens if their numbers grow too high. A sea urchin’s mouth, referred to as Aristotle’s lantern, is on the underside and has five sharp teeth. The urchin uses the tube feet to move the food to its mouth. --- How do sea urchins reproduce? Male sea urchins release clouds of sperm and females release huge numbers of eggs directly into the ocean water. The gametes meet and the sperm fertilize the eggs. The fertilized eggs grow into free-swimming embryos which themselves develop into larvae called plutei. The plutei swim through the ocean as plankton until they drop to the seafloor and metamorphosize into the globe-shaped adult urchins. ---+ Read the entire article on KQED Science: https://ww2.kqed.org/science/2016/08/23/sea-urchins-pull-themselves-inside-out-to-be-reborn/ ---+ For more information: Marine Larvae Video Resource http://marinedevelopmentresource.stanford.edu/ ---+ More Great Deep Look episodes: From Drifter to Dynamo: The Story of Plankton | Deep Look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUvJ5ANH86I Pygmy Seahorses: Masters of Camouflage | Deep Look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3CtGoqz3ww The Fantastic Fur of Sea Otters | Deep Look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zxqg_um1TXI ---+ See some great videos and documentaries from PBS Digital Studios!

HOW ANIMALS SEE THE WORLD
 
04:12
Did you know that pigeons have better vision than us? Have you ever wondered how animals and birds actually see the world? What do fish see when they look at us? This video will explain all these to the smallest details! Other videos you might like: How People in Different Physical States See the World https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIxyLl3nnLY& 24 Animals That Are Often Confused for One Another https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EDIRR6DXR0& A Unique Creature on Earth That Can Never Be Killed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8893cgbUfg& TIMESTAMPS Snakes 0:20 Cows 0:35 Horses 0:53 Fish 1:12 Birds 1:32 Eagle 1:50 Pigeon 2:01 Sparrow 2:10 Insects 2:17 Bee 2:32 Rats 2:41 Cats 2:53 Dogs 3:13 Frogs 3:25 Chameleons 3:43 #animalfacts SUMMARY - Vision of snakes differs the most from ours – they sense thermal signatures. Due to the infrared-sensitive receptors on their snouts, some snakes can ‘see’ the radiated heat of warm-blooded mammals. - Cows don’t see colors as clearly as human. You’ve probably never heard about this: they see the world in a red-orange color scheme. - There is a blind spot where horses can’t see at all – directly in front of their faces. This is because of their eye location. Also, horses don't see as many colors as we do. - Fish eyes have ultraviolet receptors and a more spherical lens than we have. They see the world in green, red, and blue colors, but can’t see red and blue. Deep sea fish can easily see in the dark. - As for birds, they have something similar in their vision – unlike humans, birds can see ultraviolet light. Thanks to the structure of their eyes, they can focus on certain places. - Flies have thousands of individual visual receptors that collectively create a broad field of vision. Also, they see the world in slow-motion and can see ultraviolet light. Another insect, a bee, has an unusual vision as well. It's a surprising fact but bees can't distinguish red color at all! For them the color red appears to be dark blue. - Rat vision is quite blurry, and they can’t see red. They also see the world in slow-motion. Each eye moves independently so they can have two images of the world. - Cats don't distinguish red and green shades, and their world is made up of brown, yellow, and blue shades. The cat's field of view is broader than ours so they can see more on the sides. -Dogs can’t see red and orange colors, but they clearly see blue and violet, as well as ultraviolet light. Moreover, they are able to differentiate between 40 shades of gray! - Frogs can notice only moving objects. They can literally starve to death in the abundance of food if the food does not move! Frogs can also focus only on certain things, so they don’t concentrate on what they don’t need (for example, shadows). - The eyes of chameleons can rotate in different directions independently, so they have a 360-degree field of vision. They see two images at the same time: one in the front and the other one behind.

10 Things You Didn't Know About Sea Urchins
 
02:27
Here are 10 things you probably didn't know about their surprisingly somewhat-complex lives of sea urchins. "Is this a predation event that we are witnessing? We might be witnessing some deep-sea predation here." [NOAA] Ah, the life of a sea urchin. Just floating around in the ocean and... What do sea urchins do, anyway? Here are 10 things you probably didn't know about their surprisingly somewhat-complex lives. Number 10. Some hang around for a long time. The red variety can live for about 200 years, making them among the longest lasting creatures on Earth. That means it's entirely possible that there's still an urchin out there who crossed paths with Lewis & Clark. Number 9. They don't have brains. The movements of their tubular feet are controlled by a simple nerve ring. It's relatively small, and most of their interior space is filled with digestive, water-carrying, and reproductive organs. Number 8. Sea urchins have teeth which come together and form a beak of sorts called an Aristotle's lantern. "Each urchin has 5 teeth which are self-sharpening and are replaced every few months." [BBC] Number 7. Being prickly isn't their only line of defense. Sea urchins can also use their spines to burrow into small rock enclosures when extra safety measures are required. Number 6. Their spines are also light sensitive. That's how they get a sense of where they are. In fact, their ability to differentiate between varying intensities of bright and dark is so sensitive, it gives them visual abilities equal to some sea creature that have eyes. Number 5. Sea urchins reproduce in groups. The process starts with males releasing sperm into the water. Then, the females come along and throw some eggs into the mix. When the two combine, a baby sea urchin will soon enter the world. Number 4. Our planet may be saved by them. Well, by studying and mimicking them, anyway. When sea urchins create their exoskeletons they use nickel ions to trap the carbon dioxide needed for its development. Scientists are currently testing how effective nickel nanoparticles are at converting larger amounts of CO2 into carbonate. Number 3. They're highly sought-after snacks. Oceans are filled with creatures looking to feast on sea urchins. Among them are sea otters, wolf eels, octopuses, and triggerfish. Number 2. Humans like them too. Some people even eat sea urchins while they're still alive, cutting them open with a pair of scissors and slurping out their insides. Number 1. Sea urchins are excellent judges of water quality. When water starts to go bad, they're among the first creatures to react to its diminishing condition. Telltale behaviors include the collapsing of spines, slowed movement, and, sadly, death.

A Sand Dollar's Breakfast is Totally Metal | Deep Look
 
04:23
Their skeletons are prized by beachcombers, but sand dollars look way different in their lives beneath the waves. Covered in thousands of purple spines, they have a bizarre diet that helps them exploit the turbulent waters of the sandy sea floor.

See the unseen at the very edge of our visible world. Explore big scientific mysteries by going incredibly small. Pristine white sand dollars have long been the souvenir to commemorate a successful day at the beach. But most people who pick them up don’t realize that they’ve collected the skeleton of an animal, washed up at the end of a long life. As it turns out, scientists say there’s a lot to be said about a sand dollar’s life. That skeleton -- also known as a test -- is really a tool, a remarkable feat of engineering that allows sand dollars to thrive on the shifting bottom of the sandy seafloor, an environment that most other sea creatures find inhospitable. “They've done something really amazing and different,” said Rich Mooi, a researcher with the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. “They’re a pile of novelties, and they’ve gone way off the deep end in modifying their bodies to adapt to where they live.” Mooi studies echinoderms, a word that roughly translates to “hedgehog skin.” It’s an aptly-fitting name for a group that includes sea urchins, sand dollars, sea stars and sea cucumbers. But Mooi says sand dollars really have his heart, in part because of their incredible adaptations. --- What are sand dollars? Sand dollars belong to a group of animals called Echinoderms that includes some more familiar animals like starfish and sea urchins. Sand dollars are actually a type of flattened sea urchin with miniaturized spines and tube feet more suited to sandy seafloors. --- What do sand dollars eat? Sand dollars consume sand but they get actual nutrition from the layer of algae and bacteria that coat the grains, not the sand itself. --- Are sand dollars alive? Why do they Turn White? When sand dollars are alive, they are covered in tiny tube feet and spines that make them appear like fuzzy discs. When they die, they lose their spines and tube feet exposing their white skeleton that scientists call a test. That skeleton is typically what people find on the beach. ---+ Read the entire article on KQED Science: https://www.kqed.org/science/1932072/a-sand-dollars-breakfast-is-totally-metal/ ---+ For more information: Learn more about Chris Lowe’s work with plankton including sand dollars and their relatives http://lowe.stanford.edu/ Rich Mooi’s research into sand dollars for California Academy of Sciences https://www.calacademy.org/learn-explore/science-heroes/rich-mooi ---+ More Great Deep Look episodes: The Amazing Life of Sand | Deep Look https://youtu.be/VkrQ9QuKprE For Pacific Mole Crabs It's Dig or Die | Deep Look https://youtu.be/tfoYD8pAsMw This Adorable Sea Slug is a Sneaky Little Thief | Deep Look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLVfWKxtfow&t=112s ---+ See some great videos and documentaries from PBS Digital Studios!

Compressor divers in Indonesia risk their life diving for sea cucumbers to trade as traditional Chinese medicine. Who’d of thought that a large, slimy slug-like creature that breathes from its bottom would fetch such a high price as a dish on your dinner plate? But that’s exactly what is happening with sea cucumbers. In fact, the price of a dried sea cucumber is so high some fisherman are going to extreme lengths to harvest them.

Mucky Secrets - Part 19 - Sea Slugs Feeding & Mating - Lembeh Strait
 
04:51
Sea slugs feeding and mating. Part 19 of my documentary, "Mucky Secrets", about the fascinating marine creatures of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia. Watch the full 90-minute documentary at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJMZ6reOB0E In this video we study how sea slugs (including nudibranchs) feed and mate. All known nudibranchs are carnivores. The biggest family of nudibranchs, the chromodoridids, feed exclusively on sponges. Most sea slugs have a ribbon-like tongue covered in microscopic teeth called a radula to help them consume their prey. The form of the radula varies greatly and is important as a basis for taxonomic classification. We see a pleurobranch, Pleurobranchus forskalii, a different type of sea slug, feeding on an ascidian, or "sea squirt", a type of tunicate. Nembrotha nudibranchs also feed on ascidians. We see a Nembrotha lineolata feeding on a blue club tunicate. The ascidian feeds by filtering plankton from the water with its delicate, blue, sieve-like interior enclosed in a clear outer sac, its tunic. The sea slug everts its proboscis, its oral tube, out of its mouth and, with ruthless efficiency, sucks this fleshy interior right through the tunic. The radula teeth enable the slug to deal with the tougher parts of the sea squirt's intestines. Most sea slugs are quite specific in their choice of food, and so they are often drawn towards the same place. This increases the chances of encountering others of the same species and finding a mate. As they have no vision, nudibranchs locate each other initially through smell then touch. During copulation, they line up their genitals which are on the right side of their body. All sea slugs are hermaphrodites and contain both male and female reproductive systems. During mating, each nudibranch receives sperm from the other. We see a pair of Nembrotha chamberlaini nudibranchs mating. The penis, which is off to the side, is covered in tiny, sharp barbs which lock it into the vagina, which is at the centre of the stalk. The male organs often mature before the female ones. Small nudibranchs with an immature female reproductive system can store the sperm they receive until they start producing fertile eggs. We also encounter a mating pair of Hypselodoris bullocki nudibranchs. Their genitals are also covered in tiny spines that anchor them together during copulation. After fertilisation, a mucus-bound ribbon of eggs is laid in a spiral, often on or near the species' food source. Most egg masses are toxic to predators and are abandoned by the parent. Hypselodorid nudibranchs often follow each other around, top to tail. The reason for this 'trailing', or "tailgating" behaviour is a mystery. It's thought to be a prelude to mating, but in some cases the trailing slug might simply be getting an easy ride in the search for food. There are English captions showing either the full narration or the common and scientific names of the marine life, along with the dive site names.

Horrible and wonderful creatures of the deep: Feeding Hagfish in Norway

With as­to­nis­hing ca­pa­bi­li­ties: They can trans­form a bu­cket of water into a gooey slime wi­t­hin se­conds, they most­ly feed on dead ani­mals which they enter via mouth, gills, eyes or other un­spea­ka­ble openings and have a face that only a mo­ther can love. They can tie them­sel­ves in a knot, can sur­vi­ve months wi­thout fee­ding and fend off even much lar­ger pre­da­tors by the use of their slime, clog­ging the gills of an at­ta­cker.

Why Horseshoe Crab Blood Is So Expensive | So Expensive
 
03:23
Horseshoe crab blood is a vital resource to the medical field. It's unique in more ways than one: the blue color and its ability to identify bacterial contamination in small quantities. Horseshoe crab blood contains a special amebocyte that is separated and then used in FDA testing. There's a lot of questions as to how blood harvesting affects the American horseshoe crab population, but some researchers are dedicated to the cause of protecting such a significant resource. ------------------------------------------------------ Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, retail, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/ BI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/businessinsider/ BI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/businessinsider/ BI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider -------------------------------------------------- Following is a transcript of the video: Narrator: This blueish liquid is one of the most expensive resources in the world. No, it's not the blue milk from "Star Wars." It's actually blood from a horseshoe crab, and the stuff this blood makes costs $60,000 a gallon. So why is it so expensive and who's buying horseshoe crab blood? The blue color comes from copper in the blood. But that's not it's most interesting feature. The blood contains a special clotting agent. It's used to make a concoction called Limulus amebocyte lysate or LAL. Before LAL, scientists had no easy way of knowing whether a vaccine or medical tool was contaminated with bacteria. Like E. coli or salmonella. Scientists would inject vaccines into huge numbers of rabbits and then basically wait for symptoms to show up. But when LAL was approved for use in 1970, it changed everything. Drop a minuscule amount of it onto a medical device or vaccine, and the LAL will encase any gram-negative bacteria in a jelly cocoon. While it can't kill the bacteria, the jelly seal is like a fire alarm. Alerting us to the presence of what could become a potentially lethal infection and prevent it from spreading. Each year, the medical industry catches around 600,000 horseshoe crabs. The crabs are drained of 30% of their blood and up to 30% of the crabs don't live through the process. The survivors are returned to the water, but no one really knows how well or if they recover. In 2016, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature bumped the American horseshoe crab up to vulnerable on it's red list, one step below endangered. And the US population could keep falling, by as much as 30% over the next 40 years. LAL Labs claim that the returned crabs eventually recover, but new evidence suggests that's not always the case. Win Watson is trying to figure out what happens to the crabs when they're put back in the sea. Win Watson: So, the most immediate negative effect is mortality. Anywhere from 10% to 25% of the animals will die within the first couple days after bleeding. Narrator: Bled crabs become disoriented and weak for a period of time, and females may have trouble spawning. Watson: If they survive the first – I'll say two weeks, week, two week — and they're back in their natural habitat they did pretty well.  Narrator: But it's getting through those two weeks that's the issue. Watson: You know, based on our data and other's I think that you need to treat them a little — if you're going to get — increase their survival rate, right, you need to treat them better. Narrator: Scientists are trying to find a synthetic alternative to help reduce the strain on the horseshoe crab population. But so far, LAL is still required by the FDA for this type of testing. So if these animals really aren't recovering at the rate companies previously thought, we might eventually run out of crabs to bleed. If that happens, our lives and the lives of countless rabbits, might be at risk.

Archerfish Says..."I Spit in Your Face!" | Deep Look
 
03:36
The archerfish hunts by spitting water at terrestrial targets with weapon-like precision, and can even tell human faces apart. Is this fish smarter than it looks? SUBSCRIBE to Deep Look! http://goo.gl/8NwXqt DEEP LOOK is a ultra-HD (4K) short video series created by KQED San Francisco and presented by PBS Digital Studios. See the unseen at the very edge of our visible world. Get a new perspective on our place in the universe and meet extraordinary new friends. Explore big scientific mysteries by going incredibly small. * NEW VIDEOS EVERY OTHER TUESDAY! * Humans always have assumed we’ve cornered the market on intelligence. But because of archerfish and other bright lights in the animal kingdom, that idea is itself evolving. Archerfish normally make their living in the mangrove forests of Southeast Asia and Australia, where they spit water at ants, beetles and other insects living on the trees’ half-submerged roots. The fish’s high-pressure projectiles knock prey from their perches into the water, and the fish swoops in. This novel feeding behavior, restricted to only seven species of fish, has attracted the attention of researchers ever since it was first described in 1764. The jet’s tip and tail unite at the moment of impact, which is critical to the success of the attack, especially as the target distance approaches the limit of the fish’s maximum spitting range of about six feet. The fish accomplishes this feat of timing through deliberate control of its highly-evolved mouthparts, in particular its lips, which act like an adjustable hose that can expand and contract while releasing the water. So in a way, to hit a target that’s further away, the fish doesn’t spit harder. It spits smarter. But just how smart is an archerfish? Using the archerfish’s spitting habits as a starting point, one researcher trained some lab fish to spit at an image of one human face with food rewards. Then, on a monitor suspended over the fish tank, she showed them a series of other faces, in pairs, adding in the familiar one. When the trained fish saw that familiar face, they would spit, to a high degree of accuracy. In a sense, the fish “recognized” the face, which should have been beyond the capacity of its primitive brain. --- Where do archerfish live? In Thailand, Australia, and other parts of Southeast Asia, usually in mangrove forests. --- What do archerfish eat? Insects and spiders that live close to the waterline. Archerfish won’t eat anything once it’s sinks too far below the surface. --- How do archerfish spit? They squeeze water through their mouth opening, using specially evolved mouthparts. ---+ Read the entire article on KQED Science: https://ww2.kqed.org/science/2017/01/31/archerfish-says-i-spit-in-your-face/ ---+ For more information: Visit the California Academy of Sciences: http://www.calacademy.org/ ---+ More Great Deep Look episodes: Sea Urchins Pull Themselves Inside Out to be Reborn https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ak2xqH5h0YY Sticky.

24 Animals That Are Often Confused for One Another
 
10:05
How to Tell Similar-looking Animals from One Another. There are approximately 7.7 million species of animals on our planet. With such an abundance of life forms, it's not surprising that people tend to confuse certain animals. We’ll teach you how to tell even the most similar looking animals from one another. You’ll never make the old mistakes again and will be able to easily find the difference between crocodiles and alligators, llamas and alpacas, leopards and jaguars and many other creatures. TIMESTAMPS Rabbits vs hares 0:46 Moths vs butterflies 1:35 Sheep vs goats 2:21 Hedgehogs vs porcupines 3:15 Llamas vs alpacas 4:11 Crocodiles vs alligators 4:56 Sea lions vs seals 5:50 Wasps vs bees 6:37 Frogs vs toads 7:15 Dolphins vs porpoises 7:54 Turtles vs tortoises 8:29 Leopards vs jaguars 9:04 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -Hares are typically faster and larger than rabbits. Their ears and strong hind legs are also longer, and they have bigger feet. -Butterflies have club-shaped antennae that look like a thin shaft with a bulbous tip. As for moths, their antennae are either serrated or feathery. -You will notice that sheep hold them down whereas the tails of goats proudly stay up. -Like all rodents, porcupines have big front teeth. As for hedgehogs, their snouts and teeth are pointy, and they are omnivores, feasting on insects, frogs, plants, and fruit. -Mature llamas are much larger than alpacas, whose weight typically varies between 100 lb and 170 lb. As for an adult llama, it can weigh as much as 400 lb. -Crocodiles are the lucky owners of special glands, which they use to excrete excess salt. As for alligators, their salt glands aren't so well developed. That's why they mostly live in fresh water. -Sea lions' flippers are larger and covered with skin. Seals have a thinly webbed flipper, and each small toe has a claw. Seals prefer solitude, and sea lions love gathering in big companies and hanging out with friends. -Bees are hairy: they need this feature to dip into flowers to collect pollen. Also, their rear legs are flat. Bees look more stocky. -The skin of most frogs is smooth, while a toad’s skin is thick and bumpy. Frogs' legs are long and slender, and their eyes are big and bulging. -Most dolphins have pointy faces, curved dorsal fins, and slender bodies. Porpoises have triangular back fins, robust bodies, and rounded faces. -Turtles have webbed feet as they live mostly in water, and this makes swimming easier. Also, their shells are lighter and flatter. -You can find jaguars in Central and South America and sometimes in the southwest of the USA. As for leopards, they dwell in Asia and Africa. Jaguars have smaller spots. Leopards are more slender and a bit smaller than jaguars.

Rare Things Sold on the Black Market
 
10:24
Governments might try to make laws in order to make it illegal to purchase certain goods and products but what they don’t know isn’t going to hurt them right? Rarer objects might be a little more difficult to obtain which will certainly add to their price once they find a potential buyer. Whether they’re rare antiquities acquired from looting museums, to certain types of cells which can actually make you look younger, here are rare things sold on the black market! But first, we asked you guys in our most insane private jets video which private jet you’d rather have, Air Force One, Trump Force One and Vlad Force one! We think killer wolf has the right answer here so we’ll go ahead give you a shout out in today’s video! Let us know in the comment section if you think any of these black market items deserve to be legal or why you think they should remain illegal and maybe we’ll feature you in an upcoming video. 13. Aztec Antiquities People who are able to steal artifacts from a lost civilization are really stealing more than just something with monetary value. It doesn’t have They’re stealing knowledge that just simply can’t be replaced. In Mexico City in 1985, 140 of the most valuable Aztec, Mayan and other pre columbian artifacts were from the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico on Christmas Eve! This was not a holly jolly christmas morning for anthropologists! It seems clear that the crooks studied their history and went right for all the wrong reasons. This was the largest heist on pre columbian artifacts ever! Many of the artifacts were made from valuable raw materials like gold or jade. This photo here show’s Pacal’s burial mask made of jade, to give you an idea what was robbed here! Officials couldn’t really put an exact number on how much the heist was worth because of how unique and historical important the items were. Some estimated as much as 32 million dollars but who knows how much they would sell for on the black market! Somehow the objects were recovered, but aztec antiquities are some of the most highly sought after on the black market. 12. Counterfeit Cash Many of us have been short on cash at times and kind of wish we could just print it out at home instead of having to go to work. But that’s against the law. Although the government has made steps in recent years to make our money less vulnerable to counterfeiters, we still come across it sometimes. The country of Peru seems to be one of the biggest leaders of this practice and in 2012, a raid took place in the capital city of Lima, where police found 2 million dollars in phony cash and 1.5 million euros. This is just a very small fraction of how much is made in this country. The laws for committing this crime in south america, is just a slap on the wrist, with the culprits only getting a warning their first time, and the 2nd time, only having to spend a few nights in jail. The notes would have most likely been used in a drug deal, and smuggled into other Central American countries. 11. Bearpaws It’s not just drugs customs and police are seizing. The wildlife black market is booming as well. Bearpaw bear parts are in high demand in China. The bearpaw soup has been a delicacy since china’s shang dynasty and was made more popular once King Zhou would partake in eating some. In 2013 Chinese officials caught two Russian men attempting to bring 213 severed bear paws into China along the Mongolian border. Once bear paws cross the border, their value increases 10 times since it’s used in a controversial soup. Bear paws can fetch a price of about 1000 bucks each in some cases. They can even be resold to be worth even 2000 dollars each making the business quite lucrative. The demand for this has skyrocketed in recent years and many believe this could lead to the black bear becoming endangered in parts of Asia. 10. Sea Cucumbers SEa cucumbers aren’t cucumbers of all and in fact, they’re bottom dwelling sea creatures somewhat similar to sea urchins or starfish. The demand for sea cucumbers is rising but people aren’t supposed to be eating them because they play a vital role in keeping large coral reefs alive. T’s gotten to be such a problem that even mexico is getting involved with shipping sea cucumber into China. Although they probably don’t look like something you want to eat, sea cucumber is said not only taste good but also be very nutritious, helping reduce the chance of getting heart disease, high in protein and even help with bone density. All those benefits would come at a high price of course. One Kilogram of Sea Cucumber can fetch a price anywhere from 435 dollars to 1000 plus. Just use your chopsticks carefully, because these things can get slippery!

Most Underated Zombie Survival Equipment
 
10:19
When you’re preparing for the zombie apocalypse, it’s important that you don’t underestimate the importance of certain items that we’re about to talk about on this list. There are various things that you might not realize could make a huge difference. You don’t want to be that guy in your group who gets eaten by the undead first, so listen up. Here is the most underated Zombie survival equipment, But first, quick shout out goes to Andres Castillo for suggesting that we make more zombie videos! It’s been awhile but that doesn’t mean the apocalypse won’t soon be here. Be sure to subsribe and check more of our zombie videos right here on american eye. 14. Ballistics Knife First used by the spetsnaz soldiers in the late 1970’s in Afghanistan, they can fly at a speed of 60 feet per second, fast enough to rip though zombie flesh and possibly some forms of body armor. When the zombie apocalypse is finally here, you might be happy that you have a few ballistic knives in your arsenal just in case. WE all know the importance of having a knife when getting up close and personal with the undead but the ability to shoot off a knife might be overlooked. It would be preferable that you don’t shoot off your knife until it’s close enough for you to get a clear headshot. Once the knife is lodged inside its head, you’ll have to use your judgement as to whether or not you want to retrieve it. ON the plus side, it’s one of the most silent weapons on the market To be on the safe side, only retrieve the knife if you missed because you don’t know what kind of germs might have 13. A Pot or Pan Once you venture off into the wilderness during the zombie apocalypse, you’ll have to find a way to not only cook properly but also a way to purify water that you come across. WE imagine you didn’t underestimate the importance of a firestarter so this should be the next item you buy. If you do not have bottled water, another way to rid water of virus or bacteria is to boil it. Make sure you bring it to a rolling boil for at least one minute and let it cool before you start drinking it. Could also be used as a weapon if needed 12. Scuba Diving Gear Since escaping zombies might require you to swim to a remote island, scuba diving gear or even simple swimming goggles can be imperative for your survival. Being able to scavenge underwater sea creatures or bottom dwelling sea cucumbers could be a crucial way to gather food during the apocalypse. As long as you think the water isn’t contaminated with the zombie virus then it shouldn’t be much of a problem as long as you got the right gear. Some preppers have even considered stashing some of their surplus resources underwater which wouldn’t be affected by a tsunami. In any case, zombies can’t swim so if you’re in the water you should be safe. 11.Titanium Spork You might think this sounds like a joke but those smart enough to have bought sporks before the apocalypse will be the ones laughing. They’re crafted for long time use, won’t rust and you can even buy the color that suits you best. Not only does it properly fuction as a spoon but can also work just fine as a fork. This means that just about any canned food you come across can be eaten with this one of a kind utensil device. Titanium is known for being able to last for hundreds of years and for being one of the strongest metals you can possibly find. 10. Poncho Don’t underestimate the power of a simple poncho and what it can do for you! Lightweight and easy to pack, ponchos can serve more purposes than simply keeping you dry. If you’re creative enough, you could probably use a few ponchos to make yourself a tent or a shelter in the rainy environment. Keeping things dry is extremely important, considering the fact that moisture will lead to fungal and microbial infections. Ponchos are utilized quite often by the military and other survivalists. It’s a versatile item that should be kept in your survival kit. They’re available for your dogs too in case your dog likes fighting zombies! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv

What They Discovered In Antarctica Should NEVER Have Been Found...
 
10:41
Description: Well hey there everybody! Welcome back to your favorite entertainment channel on YouTube – the Supreme! Today, just like every day – we’ve got a brand-new video lined up for you. I’m your host Matty Willz and we’ll be exploring the cool world – get it, cool? – of one of the coldest places on earth – with today’s title – What They Discovered in Antarctica Should Never Have Been Found! 10 Active Volcanoes So, we’ll kick things off right here today with a story about something that you may not expect to see in the world’s coldest area – and that’s because this is about the hottest thing on the planet. Of course I’m talking about volcanoes – and it’s commonly known throughout the world of science that there are indeed active volcanoes beneath sheets of ice in the Antarctic – and more and more people are ceding the notion that this could be a contributing factor to the melting glaciers. In fact, some scientists have also warned that these wild card volcanoes need to be considered when estimating the world’s impeding rising sea levels, although there are some out there that dispute that claim 9 The Headless Chicken Monster So moving things right along, check out this guy – who’s technically known in the animal world as a sea cucumber, however may better be known as – the headless chicken monster! Yeah, that’s right – it’s called a headless chicken monster – and while looking at it here on the ocean floor, it’s kinda easy to see why it earned that name! It can grow up to about 9 inches long, and they spend a vast majority of their life walking about on the ocean floor. Now this is the first time this animal has been filmed in this area, however – that’s likely do to there being brand new equipment out there enabling scientists and researchers to get a far better understanding of what’s really going on out there. 8 Penguin Selfies So we all have that one friend that whenever we’re out they almost always have to stop the entire party from moving forward until they take a self – am I right? Well, go figure – if you leave a video camera around a bunch of penguins in the Antarctic – they’re gonna find a way to take a selfie too. Well, these penguins sort of took some selfies – and whatever you want too call it, they look pretty cute! A guy named Eddie Gault, a member of the Australian Antarctic Division, placed a camera near a massive penguin colony they were studying. This footage is the result of a curious bird mixed with a little modern technology. Pretty cute, right? Hmmm, I wonder what else we’ll stumble upon from the coldest parts of the world in today’s episode? 7 The Arctic is Melting So the polar regions of the earth, the Arctic and Antarctica areas to the extreme north and south, are very important for healthy world climate. The problem though? The ice is melting at an extreme rate, and if all of that ice truly turned into water then we’re all in pretty big trouble. Since 1990 alone there has been intense amount of ice lost, and this is one of those situations where – as humans – we really don’t have all that much control. More proof the ice is melting? Geologoists say that the thickest part of the ice – which they’ve been monitoring since 1960, has decreased by 40% in the last 50 plus years, and suggest the arctic could be without ice by 2040. That’s kind of scary when you think about it. 6 The Penguin Mega-Colony 5 ?? 4 ?? 3 ?? 2 ?? 1 ??
