So the question now is, can they get on living, human teeth?

Okay, I don't see what makes them "zombies"... and aren't mouthless zombies the most harmless kind?

Or mouthless and armless...

Well it IS "molecular acid", as opposed to that other acid that's not made from molecules.

dittybopper: Deep-sea whale falls are actually pretty damn interesting.


Whale falls are indeed fascinating.  They create a gigantic (for the creatures involved) ecosystem that lasts for a couple of decades, and then is gone.

How do their babies find the next one?  That's my question.

/Sort of like the extremophiles that live on underwater hot-gas plumes, which are also rare.  Also sulfur-rich and pretty much free of oxygen.  Life is fascinating.

They think bone worms may be more ancient than fish? What had bones and lived in the ocean before fish? Wat bone worms before bones eat? Shells don't have lipids, do they? Maybe they had ancestors that ate live / dead crustaceans or something? Myllokunmingia? But they had no bones. Sucky the cartilage?
