WTF osteichthyes



My pet has no eyelids. And while he does, unlike most fish, breathe, he can go for many minutes at a time without doing so. So when he sleeps, as he appears to do from time to time, I just have to take it on faith that he's alive. That is, unless I can glimpse the ripple of a fin, as he does sometimes paddle in his sleep. Speaking of fins, his pectorals -- the ones on his sides -- are literally about two cells thick. My pet has see-through limbs! Weird-ass non-mammal.
