SHORT because Rheilly just grazes 12 inches with the intact right eartip upright when posting (We measured! As a reference, Teddy, who is just a bit larger than average, is already 15 inches without eartips)

Both are carivores, live in tropical habitats and operate in environments where there are much larger predators. Parallel evolution in evidence?

(NOTE – We can’t even swim to save our lives, so we did not personally meet the fishie, but came across it in this colourful pictorial: Underwater Eden: 365 Days by Jeffrey L Rotman, borrowed from the library)
