While night-diving with blacklight video equipment to record the biofluorescence of corals and reef fish, David Gruber encountered something very special: the first documentation of biofluorescence of a reptile: a critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle.

The Transparent Cave Goby (Fusigobius pallidus) isn't the most colorful species out there, but as ORA says, "Sometimes the best camouflage requires no color at all." We also share an image of their breeding facilities after the jump. It's awesome!
