HOW THE MOKIN CHILDREN ARE ABLE TO SEE WITH AMAZING CLARITY UNDERWATER
The Mokin are a group in Thailand that are nomadic and have a sea-based culture.
In the sea there is less light, so usually one’s iris will dilate. But the Mokin have an adaption where instead of dilating, they constrict as much as possible.
This allows them to see with much better clarity. Recent studies suggest that any child can quickly learn this trick. It exemplifies how well our brain adapts to our environment.

This picture circulated around the internet a few years back, and a lot of people were sure it was fake. Nope, it’s real. This is a Coconut Crab, and it’s huge for a reason. Anyone who’s tried to open a coconut with simple tools can probably figure out why. Of course, like always, ARKive has great footage of these guys breaking into coconuts.
By the way Coconut Crabs are really giant hermit crabs. The adults are big enough to not need a shell (and would have a hell of a time finding one that fits). But, before they attain their massive size, the babies still use the tried-and-true snail shell protection method that other Hermit Crabs use:
If you are a monster, by choice or birth or curse
If you are a monster, by choice or birth or curse, unleash your poison breath and razor claws.
If you are a monster, by choice or birth or curse, your name is a promise of a fell fate for all your enemies.
If you are a monster, by choice or birth or curse, you will survive the ice, you will build the fire, your wounds will heal, your muscles will grow, your plans will tighten, and you will thrive.
This world is made for monsters.

No, for real, though—this is a thing. Not sure about the science behind it, but it makes me feel fancy and powerful regardless. I highly recommend it.
There actually is legit science behind this. In fact, here’s an entire TED Talk about the science behind it, and the confidence-related chemicals that your brain produces JUST BY YOU STANDING LIKE THIS.
