 The smallrus is tiniest of the seal family, not much larger (and rather similiar in shape) to the garden slug. They prefer damp areas with large amounts of water, like well-watered gardens with fish ponds, and can often be seen sporting in puddles and bird baths, making their typical call (a sort of squeaky bellow.*) Any gardener is generally delighted to see the smallrus appear, as the occasional nibble of a leaf is more than made up for by their ability to keep down the number of mosquito larvae and other small aquatic nuisances.
This is so my ex-husband’s fault.
One day he was wandering around singing “I am the smallrus!”
"How big is a smallrus?" I asked.
"Very, very tiny."
"Awww."
"They’re bred as sock warmers. You can put your socks on the smallri to keep warm."
"AWWWWW!"
"They purr."
"AWWWWWWWWWWW!"
And just when I was thinking that I had misjudged this man for ten whole years, that he was capable of great depths of adorableness, that his capacity for cuteness was far beyond anything I’d guessed, and he’d merely been hiding it behind a facade of mild pervesion and non-sequitor—
"And they’re great with honey-mustard sauce!"
*sigh*
As my friend Kathy said, “He is capable of great flights of whimsy, you just can’t listen all the way to the end.”  -Ursula Vernon

*Inhale a good lungful of helium and yell “GRONK!” and you’ve about got it.

WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

*puts up bat signal for science side of tumblr*

It’s actually the little organism said fish has eaten (or tried to anyway.) The fish and creature live in deep ocean usually where there’s little to no light.
So as a defense mechanism the little organism (I honestly can’t remember what it was specifically) emits a form of bioluminescence when the fish swallows it. This lights up the fish calling attention to it in the dark. The fish spits it back out the organism so that predators won’t see it lit up in the dark.
Said little organism can then swim off having not been eaten!
