January 30th - On this day, 363 years ago, King Charles I became the first British monarch to be executed for treason.
After a delay to his execution due to the executioner refusing to kill the King, Charles was led to the scaffold which was covered in black cloth. He had been permitted to wear thick underclothes as he was concerned that if he shivered in the cold, the crowd might think he was afraid.
The aftermath of his death led to the abolition of the monarch for eleven years, until Charles II returned to become King in 1660. He had those who had signed his father’s death warrant tried as regicides and executed.

Nudibranch nudibranch nudibranch nudibranch!

Nudibranchs are all carnivores. Most of them (all of them, if in too dense an area) are cannibalistic. Some of these very cool/scary invertebrates even actively hunt down Portuguese Man o’ Wars for food…you know, the ones that have the second most painful sting of any sea creatures? Yeah, they eat those, and take the nematocysts that make up the tentacles for their own protection.
