THIS NEEDS TO BE A 300-PAGE SCI-FI NOVEL BECAUSE I WOULD READ THE HELL OUTTA THAT
the red kite tree tent, here in builth wells, powys, wales. the tree tent concept was initially created by jason thawley of design studio luminair: “we wanted to develop a lightweight and efficient structure using sustainable, recyclable, recycled and natural materials; a structure that can be easily transported and assembled on-site with minimal, non-permanent impact on its environment.
"what we realised was a unique, hybrid aluminium and green ash static airframe combined with an expertly tailored 100% cotton canvas skin. the spherical structure is 3m in diameter, sizable enough to comfortably accommodate two adults. 100% wool, winter thermal liners allow for all year round accommodation while wood stove, water and electric options offer the extra creature comforts."
Pelican Eel (Eurypharynx pelecanoides)
The pelican eel has a large mouth that is reminiscent of a pelican’s. This mouth is much larger than the rest of its body and is loosely hinged, allowing for the fish to swallow prey larger than itself. Since encounters with prey in the deep sea can be sporadic and rare, this adaptation is important to ensure that the pelican eel is always ready to strike, regardless of the prey’s size. Despite this, analysis of the fish’s stomach reveals that they mostly dine on small crustaceans.
Additionally, the fish has an organ at the end of its tail which emits apink bioluminescent glow. The occasional red flashes are believed to attract prey.
