We’ve traveled far, this last week. From gentle basking sharks gliding across the surface of the North Sea to titanically tiny worms dwelling in the deep.

Mike Allred’s is a small taste of the unknown still waiting to be explored.
I saved the best for last, including my favorite squid and scale worm. Before we dive into these final identifications, let’s take a moment to review.
