Discoveries & catching up

My geeky side decided to subscribe to the National Geographic newsletter a while back. I love finding out what's new and exciting in the world of discoveries! Here's what they had this week...

This fish has a transparent head! Since 1939 the only evidence they had of it were dead specimens found in fish nets - that is of course until recently... The fish lives 600m below the oceans surface!
Here is the link if you'd like to read more.

This is a photo of the largest found to date. It measures 2m wide by 2.1m long! If it's tail was still attached it would be over 5m! Zeb Hogan is one of the people who has dedicated his life to finding freshwater giants! Most of those have been found in in the deep rivers of Thailand .

But enough with the geekyness :)
My sister's home for the weekend and we will be spending the day in the shops! We will be catching up on what has happened over the last 6 weeks and I have no doubt that we will have a FANTASTIC time!

Hope you have and amazing weekend!

P.S. Watched 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' last night... Very good movie and makes you appreciate the time you have on this earth!
