The solving is fake, the cuteness is 100% real.
is a small species of aquatic snake native to Southeastern Asia. The name tentacled comes from the two “tentacles” that are on the front of the snakes head, these are used in mechanosensory in murky water. Their diet consists solely of fish, which they kill with a specific type of venom located in the back of the snakes mouth. They act in a similar fashion to sea snakes as they spend almost their entire lives in the water and when on land they move very awkwardly.
polypterus appreciation post
They’re nocturnal predatory freshwater fish, and are notable not just because they look cool, but because they’re really fucking old, which is part of why they look so cool. They have lungs, and are obligate air breathers. Juveniles show external gills, like axolotls. Though they can swim (and sometimes very fast in sudden bursts), they often prop themselves up on their ‘arms,’ and scoot around the bottom that way.
just humor my love of these fish, ok
