You also have the Harlequin Shrimp, very popular in aquariums and less like to break your finger with a punch

Small, pretty and without fear! If you are bitten by one you will begin to feel numbness, cramps and pain virtually straight away. Within in a few minutes you will be conscious but completely paralysed. I think you can buy them for home aquariums - not sure I would

I don't advise a haircut, man. All hairdressers are in the employment of the government. Hairs are your aerials. They pick up signals from the cosmos, and transmit them directly into the brain.

This one featured on an episode of Octonauts on CBeebies the other week. His name was Boo, and he helped Peso guide his kaput submarine back up through the jagged rocks. Peso was terrified of him at first, cos he kept saying "boo" when Peso asked what his name was. But in the end they sorted the confusion out and everyone was friends.

These are both the same species of fish (the Mexican Tetra) one is descended from some which ended up in a cave the other is not.

You lie!!  They were both created about 6000 years ago by the almighty - the first one hid in caves to hide from the dinosau...sorry, just slipped into creationist mode there.

Not to push this thread too much , but it amazes me sometimes how creationists can see this and not think that maybe Darwin had a point   And just to get it firmly back on topic, I introduce the Yeti Crab, discovered in 2005:

The Pearl Fish lives in the anus of a Sea Cucumber. It has been known to break through the intestinal walls, if a bit peckish, and to feast upon the Sea Cucumber's gonads

Is that one where you do not wee wee in the river and if you do you may have to have it cut off?
