You know bats—the flighty mammals that find their way around with sonar and eat bugs and sometimes revert to their human form and live in a castle on a hill. But bats have a little secret I’d like to share with you: They can be astonishingly fast. As in, as fast as a car on a highway. This isn’t a Halloween trick, because quite frankly I don’t got time for that. So check out this week’s episode of Absurd Creatures to learn more!

For the Lowly Dung Beetle, Life Doesn't Always Stink

“It’s a dirty job,” Faith No More once said, “but someone’s gotta do it. [Chorus: We care a lot!]” Tell me about it, replies the dung beetle. Someone has to clean up the scat that covers the Earth (yeah, there’s a lot of it). But the dung beetle doesn’t just eat poo—the males roll it into balls to woo the ladies, which in turn use it as a home for their young. It’s just one big crappy situation. Check out this week’s episode of Absurd Creatures for more!

These Fish Were Made for Walking and That's Just What They Do

Hundreds of millions of years ago, our fishy ancestors dragged themselves out of the water and diversified into all the vertebrates on Earth—everything from lizards to primates to humans. But one particular fish just can’t seem to make up its mind about living in the water or on land: the mudskipper. And good on it, because it’s marvelously adapted for both lives.

You know bats—the flighty mammals that find their way around with sonar and eat bugs and sometimes revert to their human form and live in a castle on a hill. But bats have a little secret I’d like to share with you: They can be astonishingly fast. As in, as fast as a car on a highway. This isn’t a Halloween trick, because quite frankly I don’t got time for that. So check out this week’s episode of Absurd Creatures to learn more!

Dragons have got a lot of things going for them: the fire-breathing, the treasure-hoarding, the people-eating. Problem is, they’re not strictly speaking real. But in Australia there swims something far more un-imaginary, and far more stunning. The leafy seadragon is a masterpiece of natural selection, and pretty laid back too.

Big up to the California Academy of Sciences for letting us film their dragons.
