Picture Of he Day

Crazy organic. The inside of a leatherback sea turtle's mouth:

Interesting. I presume the (?cartilaginous) tooth-like projections point inward to keep prey from wiggling back out of the mouth. They obviously aren't for mastication. I've never seen this before.
Creeps me right the hell out. But cool as hell, just the same.

Reminds me of the maw of a sandworm from Dune. Limbaugh for the part of Baron Harkonnen.

What a turtle, JBW! :-)

I still prefer the chocolate mousse.
