THE VAMPIRE

THINGS TO KNOW

• The vampire is an ancient

species and is a phylogenic relic

meaning that it is the only

surviving member of the order

Vampyromorphida.


• One of the most unique behaviors

of the Vampire Squid is that they

seem to be flying through the

water.


• Such movements are the result of

how they flap their fins to move

around, kind of like Dracula.

THE

PACIFIC

BARREL EYE

scientific name

macropinna microstoma

2 the alien

2 THE ALIEN

THINGS TO KNOW

• The Pacific Barreleye has a see

through head. Its eyes are

tubular and point forward, with

the ability to rotate upwards,

which gives it amazing

binocular vision.

?

• When prey is spotted, the

Barreleye moves in the exact

same direction as its line of

sight to catch them. Its flat

fins help it swim very precisely.

?

• This method is so efficient that

it is sometimes able to snatch

food away from other deep sea

creatures. Its transparent

shield renders it immune to

stings.

THE

WARTY

COMB JELLY

scientific name

mnemiopsis

scientific name

THE GHOST

THINGS TO KNOW

• Comb jellies are beautiful,

oval-shaped animals with

eight rows of tiny comblike

plates that they beat to move

themselves through the water.

As they swim, the comb rows

diffract light to produce a

shimmering, rainbow effect.

?

• Comb jellies will eat other

comb jellies larger than

themselves by biting off

chunks with special cilia

structures in their mouths.

?

• The jellies have exceptional

regenerative powers, capable

of repairing up to 50 percent

of their bodies.

WORM

scientific name

scientific name

THE FAIRY

THINGS TO KNOW

• When the Waitomo Glowworm

Caves were first explored in

1887, the first discovery was

the Glowworm Grotto with its

myriad of tiny bright lights

emitted by the glow worms

dotting the cave ceiling,

reflecting off the water below.

?

• Glowworms can survive only in

very damp, dark places where

their light can be seen. They

need a ceiling that is fairly

much horizontal from which

they can hang their sticky

feeding lines, and a sheltered

place where wind does not dry

them out or tangle their lines.

the chupacabra 1

THE

CHUPACABRA

5

ACTUALLY IT’S…

THE

AYE AYE

scientific name

daubentonia

madagascariensis

slide16

5

THE CHUPACABRA

THINGS TO KNOW

?

• Many people native to

Madagascar consider the 


aye-aye an omen of ill luck.

?

• For this reason they were often

killed on sight. Such hunting,

coupled with habitat

destruction, have made the aye-

aye critically endangered. Today

they are protected by law.

?

• While perched aloft, the aye-aye

taps on trees with its long

middle finger and listens for

wood-boring insect larvae

moving under the bark.

the mermaid 1

THE

MERMAID

6

ACTUALLY IT’S…

THE

MANATEE

scientific name

trichechus

the mermaid 2

THE MERMAID

6

THINGS TO KNOW

• Christopher Columbus and

other early explorers claimed

to have seen female figures

swimming in the ocean—the

mermaids in the writings and

drawings of this era. Whether

they had been at sea for too

long or it was a trick of the

light, we now know that many

of these encounters were with

manatees.

?

• The manatee belongs in the

order Sirenia, the Greek name

for this order is derived from

the sirens of Greek mythology.

Sirens were sea nymphs who

lured sailors to their island

with their mesmerizing songs.

the zombie 1

THE

ZOMBIE

7

ACTUALLY IT’S…

THE

FLATWORM

PARASITE

scientific name

leucochloridium paradoxum

slide22

7

THE ZOMBIE

THINGS TO KNOW

• This parasitic worm invades a

snail’s eyestalks, where it

pulsates to imitate a

caterpillar.

?

• The worm larva changes into a

sporocyst and mind-controls

its host out into the open for

hungry birds to pluck out its

eyes. Healthy snails seek

darkness to hide from

predators, but the zombie

snail will climb into sunlight.

?

• The worm breeds in the bird’s

guts, releasing its eggs in the

bird’s feces, which are happily

eaten up by another snail to

complete the whole bizarre

life cycle.

the demon 1

THE

DEMON

8

ACTUALLY IT’S…

THE

ANGLER

FISH

scientific name

lophiiformes

slide25

8

THE DEMON

THINGS TO KNOW

• The Angler Fish lives in the one

of the Earth’s most inhospitable

habitats, the lightless bottom of

the sea.

?

• Their most distinctive feature,

worn only by females, is a piece

of dorsal spine that protrudes

above their mouths like a

fishing pole—hence their name.

Tipped with a lure of luminous

flesh this built-in rod baits prey

close enough to be snatched.

?

• Their mouths are so big and

their bodies so pliable, they can

actually swallow prey up to

twice their own size.

the werewolf 1

THE

WEREWOLF

9

ACTUALLY IT’S…

THE

LYKOI

CAT

scientific name

felis silvestris catus

slide28

9

THE WEREWOLF

THINGS TO KNOW

• The Lykoi Cat is a natural

mutation from a domestic

shorthair cat and resembles

a werewolf. It is a partially

or almost entirely hairless

depending on the moulting

season.

?

• These cats have

temperaments like hunting

dogs. They are extremely

loyal to their owners, scent

motivated, and very

intelligent.
