Teensy-weensy baby swordfish are now on the shortlist for "cutest animal in the world"
Here, have a photo of a ridiculously cute baby swordfish, because everyone needs to see this.
Sometimes animals surprise you with their cuteness, like the swordfish in this photo that was taken by Juan C. Levesque. Levesque is a PhD candidate and recently wrote a very interesting article on the life cycle patterns of swordfish in a Florida Sportsman article. The really interesting part concerns the rapid development of swordfish. According to Levesque, "within one year, this little guy may be 39 inches." That could mean a potential growth of 4,000% in a year.
