The scientists raised 111 juvenile bichir on land for eight months and monitored changes compared to a control group of fish remaining in water.

Singapore-based artist Keng Lye creates near life-like sculptures of animals relying on little but paint, resin and a phenomenal sense of perspective. Lye slowly fills bowls, buckets, and boxes with alternating layers of acrylic paint and resin, creating aquatic animal life that looks so real it could almost pass for a photograph.

He then removes segments of the stone, which symbolize the history of the land in which it originated, and replaces it with layers of aesthetically beautiful, polished glass. By blending the two opposite substances, Todo redefines the surface of the materials, creating a new and unexpected texture. The fragmented matter works closely together to form the rough, yet sparkling, sculpture, and the juxtaposition of the delicate material wedged between layers of hard, solid rock is visually exciting.
