So this new critter
, the Symbion pandora
, has such a bizarre life cycle and is just so bloody weird -unlike anything we had come across before- that its discovery
in 1995 lead to the creation of a whole new phylum in the Animal Kingdom. Meet the little monsters
If your weird-o-meter is humming, keep reading Zoologger
, a new column in NewScientist magazine that writes about about weird animals from around the globe. Selective abortion in pipefish, single-cell giants that enslave bacteria, amphibious cats, you name it.
