Please tell me some nice nature facts. I need something positive.

@AzureKingfisher There are recorded instances of blind seals thriving in the wild. They're able to compensate with their whiskers and sense of smell.

@AzureKingfisher Yeah, that one always gives me warm fuzzies.

There was a recent article about scientists finding a second species of animal ( red brittle star, I think ) that is able to see without eyes. It has light sensitive organelles on its skin that it uses for camoflage, but apparently it can also use this sensory data to process what its environment looks like. I guess the other animal that they know does something similar is a species of sea cucumber.
