when u get a cute button up shirt and u think it’s going to fit and it does but. but then. u see it. The Thing
The Alabama Cavefish was first seen in 1967 by a Ph.D student studying crayfish, and his wife, who he routinely dragged to dark, wet cracks in the Earth. Somehow he was able to tell that this colorless, eyeless, three-inch fish was different than any others he’d seen before. A few years later, this species was formally described.
A few years after that, it got listed as Vulnerable. As scientists have only found it in that one cave, and only nine specimens have been observed, it has steadily moved down to Critically Endangered.
