Oysters are a keystone species, cleaning and filtering the waters where they live, providing essential habitat for other animals and plants. In the Chesapeake Bay, one adult oyster filters out toxins and crud from 50 gallons of water per day.

A real-life "Octomom" off the coast of California has been declared a champion of parenting — and patience — in the animal world.  After the deep-sea creature laid a clutch of eggs, she protected her babies until they hatched 4.5 years later, without even leaving to eat.
