Aquaman, Biodiversity and Southern Fried Science

Yay! Southern Fried Science has finished the series on Aquaman #31's variant cover as mentioned on this blog and over at the Aquaman Shrine.

Mike Allred didn't just draw Aquaman, he drew a number of REAL sea creatures (though not to scale). So here's the tally...

  1. Frilled Shark (Chlamydoselachus anguineus)
  2. Giant Deep-sea Isopod (Bathynomus giganteus)
  3. A deep-sea worm with no common name (Eunice pulvinopalpata)
  4. Fangtooth (Anoplogaster cornuta)
  5. A different giant isopod (Glyptonotus antarcticus)
  6. Hairy anglerfish (Caulophryne polynema)
  7. Sarcastic Fringehead (Neoclinus blanchardi)
  8. Monkfish (Lophius americanus)
  9. The muppet-faced worm (Nereis sandersi)
  10. Pacific viperfish (Chauliodus macouni)
  11. Basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus)
  12. Gulper eel (Saccopharynx ampullaceus)
  13. Pygmy Seahorse (Hippocampus bargibanti)
  14. Anglerfish (Lophius piscatorius)
  15. Supergiant Amphipod (Alicella gigantea)
  16. The Vampire Squid from Hell (Vampiroteuthis infernalis)
  17. Scale worm (Lepidonotopodium piscesae)
  18. Sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus)
Visit Southern Fried Science to learn a LOT more about each of the fish, complete with photos. Seriously, this was a very cool set of blog posts, so go learn a bit more about Aquaman's world.
