Those who have observed the languid pace of seahorses or seadragons swimming might think these fish only hunt slow prey. In fact, the tiny crustaceans on which they feed are extremely quick, capable of velocities over 500 body lengths per second. Instead of speed, the seahorse relies on stealth to capture its prey, as shown in the holographic video above. Seahorses use a pivot method to feed, simultaneously shifting their snouts up and sucking water in to catch their target. But this method of feeding only works for distances of about 1 mm. To get that close in the first place, the seahorse must approach its prey without alerting it. Researchers found that both the seahorse’s head shape and its natural posture create a hydrodynamic quiet zone just off the seahorse’s snout, directly in its strike zone. Fluid velocity and deformation rates in this region are significantly lower than those around the rest of the seahorse’s face when it moves, allowing the fish to sneak up on its prey. These adaptations are remarkably effective, too; the researchers observed that the seahorses were able to position themselves within 1mm of their prey without alerting them 84% of the time. (Video credit: B.

Sharks have evolved some incredible fluid dynamical abilities. Instead of scales, their skin is covered in microscopic structures called denticles. To give you a sense of size, each denticle in the black and white image above is about 100 microns across. Denticles are asymmetric and overlap one another, creating a preferential flow direction along the shark. When water tries to move opposite the preferred direction, the denticles will bristle, like in the animation above. The bristled denticles form an obstacle for the reversed flow without any effort on the shark’s part. Since local flow reversal is an early sign of separation, researchers theorize that this bristling tendency prevents flow along the shark’s skin from separating. Keeping flow attached, especially along the shark’s tail, is vital not only to the shark’s agility but to keeping its drag low. Researchers have even begun 3D printing artificial shark skin to try and harness the animal’s hydrodynamic prowess. For much more shark-themed science, be sure to check out this week’s "Several Consecutive Calendar Days Dedicated to Predatory Cartilaginous Fishes" video series by SciShow, It’s Okay to be Smart, The Brain Scoop, Smarter Every Day, and Minute Physics.

So there!
Someone here on Tumblr stole the picture of my pants and I’m super bloody angry about it.

So I’m uploading it myself now and already contacted the Tumblrsupport because I want to have the fake one deleted.

 It hurts so much that the stupid stolen one hit 50k that’s just bullshit and I wanna cry
The next time you wanna upload that s*it of mine you gon’ ask me got it??

So yeah those are the nearly finished pants i painted for my Nisha-cosplay.
Nothing more to say…
here’s my site which is also the source:
