Default REAL BLUE!! (short natgeo docu)

Turns out the "real" color blue or better said the blue pigment is quite rare on planet earth. Guess which vertebrates are the only ones that realy have the color blue... You can find the answer around 3m10sec.

This was fascinating - thanks for sharing!

I know they said the reason is unknown... but I'm curious of the speculations/theories as to while true blue pigment is so rare.

Mandarin dragonets also have blue pigment! They're a saltwater fish but are still vertebrates too! Absolutely stunning fish if you've never seen one.

So,
The Na'vi from Avatar aren't really blue?
I'm crushed, I need my Azureus to calm me down...

This doc was recently produced. We won’t discover Na’vi for another 130 years. At the moment; tinctorius, they’re blue.
