    ..that sea cucumbers can vomit up their intestines (for predators to eat) and then grow new intestines

    Something new I learnt today

      Never heard that one.  That's rather cool!

      I know some people can vomit up their spine.  However, they don't ever seem to grow one back.  We can sure learn a lot from sea life. smile

    There is some crazy life in the seas!
    This is not the weirdest I have heard either!
    I saw something about a type of octopus (I think it was) that can spontaneously age backwards, back to infancy, effectively making it immortal assuming it does not get eaten or killed in some other way. Basically it cannot die of old age as all its cells can revert to those of a newborn in the species.
