Hasn't everyone who ever had a freshwater aquarium when they were a kid?

I am not certain that the article and accompanying captions adequately explained that biologists believe that the fish is able to survive with little haemoglobin due to its unusually large heart and its use of blood plasma to transport oxygen.

Hey that's pretty cool. Oh shiat look at Salma Hayek's  melons in the sidebar! Damn that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley got some major nippage going on too!

I wonder if researchers believe the fish can live without haemoglobin because it has an unusually large heart and uses blood plasma to circulate oxygen throughout its body.

I don't understand, how can a fish live without hemoglobin?? It doesn't make any sense!

Nor have I seen a whale with a polka dot tail or a man with eight fingers on each hand.

Same way people can live with anemia forever and not know it. It's just a horribly inefficient method of oxygen delivery.

I'm more curious about how the thing heals without bleeding out instantly.

I propose that this fish can live without haemoglobin because of it's unusually large heart, which I assume is used to directly circulate oxygen via the blood plasma.

A see-through fish with transparent blood?  No, I haven't seen it.  Sounds invisible to me.

I have one, they are called ghost catfish.
Next question...

Have you ever seen a see-through fish, on weed?

Maybe it's just me but I wish when somebody stumbles onto some mildly interesting scientific article they would take the extra step to find an article about it that actually contains more than 2 lines of science and if you're not careful you might learn something. Like this article from Scientific American  http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/brainwaves/2012/08/03/how-the-ant a rctic-icefish-lost-its-red-blood-cells-but-survived-anyway/

/not picking on you subby, I just get tired of lame British tabloid links.
