jedavu: The Adorable Sea Sheep This little sea animal is called “Costasiella kuroshimae” (known as “Leaf Sheep”). It’s an aquatic slug that looks like a cow or a sheep and that eats so much algae that it can photosynthetize. When it eats an algae, it absorbs all the chloroplasts and turns into a process of kleptoplasty namely it digests partially the plasts and keeps some for it. This covered algae sheep can be found in Japan, Indonesia and Philippines.

"Costasiella kuroshimae (also referred to as 'leaf sheep' and 'Shaun the sheep') is a species of sacoglossan sea slug whose beady eyes and flat face make it look like a cartoon sheep. Add some droopy feelers and a phosphorescent, leaf-like body. ... One of the only non-plant organisms in the world that can perform photosynthesis" (by 'kleptoplasty') by eating green algae. They are found in Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines. - photo by Jim Lynn, via My Modern Met
It’s a sheep! It’s a cow! No, it’s Costasiella kuroshimae (or ‘Leaf Sheep’ for short). This adorable little sea slug, whose beady eyes and cute feelers make it look like a cartoon sheep, feeds on algae – just like the real thing! What’s fascinating about the tiny ‘leaf sheep,’ which can grow up to 5mm in length and can be found near Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines, is that they are one of the only animals in the world that can perform photosynthesis.

The Exocoetidae are a family of marine fish in the order Beloniformes of class Actinopterygii. Fish of this family are known as flying fish. Flying fish live in all of the oceans, particularly in tropical and warm subtropical waters. ~ 64 Most Stunning Pictures Of Wild Animals Ever Captured On Camera.
FLYING FISH Flying fish can make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of water into air, where their long, wing-like fins enable them to glide for considerable distances above the water's surface. This uncommon ability is a natural defense mechanism to evade predators.
They are unreal! They jump outta the water, sometimes 15 feet high, and flap their fins and literally fly for up to 5 seconds. Amazing! #FlyingFish

The squid Gonatus onyx carries around her brood of 2,000 to 3,000 eggs for up to nine months. The squid moms have their arms full: While carrying their eggs, they’re stuck swimming with their fins and mantle instead of their much more effective arms.

The squid Gonatus onyx carries around her a brood of 2,000 to 3,000 eggs for up to nine months. According to a 2005 study published in the journal Nature, the squid carry their eggs to deep water, where predators are rare.

If you think gestating one baby is tough, try 3,000. The squid Gonatus onyx carries around her brood of 2,000 to 3,000 eggs for up to nine months. The squid moms have their arms full: While carrying their eggs, they're stuck swimming with their fins and mantle instead of their much more effective arms. So why would G. onyx take such care of its thousands of offspring? According to a 2005 study published in the journal Nature, the squid carry their eggs to deep water, where predators are rare. The deep-sea offspring are also larger and more capable of survival than shallow water squid -- thanks, mom!

Predatory Tunicate The predatory tunicate is a species of tunicate which lives anchored along the deep sea canyon walls and seafloor, waiting for tiny animals to drift or swim into its hood-shaped mouth. Wikipedia
Tiny Animal, The Ocean, Google Search, Megalodicopia Hian, Sea Canyon, Aliens Animals, Ocean Animal, Deep Sea, Mario Bros
Reminds me of a translucent version of the plants that come out the Warp Pipes in Super Mario Bros.
This predatory tunicate (Megalodicopia hians) has developed a unique strategy: it is both a filter filterer and a predator. Its large mouth closes rapidly on small shrimps or other crustaceans that stray there. They are found at depths of 200–1,000 meters and grow up to 20cm. For All The Ocean Lovers
The Predatory tunicate lives anchored along deep sea canyon walls and seafloor, waiting for tiny animals to drift or swim into its hood-shaped mouth.

jellyfish sea life
Jelly fish are strange, with 90% of their body water they don't have a brain, all jelly fish have a squishy hemisphere for a head and deadly stingers that are directly below the head. The stingers kill fish, some jelly fish can kill or wound a human.

no, not babies.... seahorses EAT their babies! The theory is that they cling together to look bigger to predators...still sweet, but realistic. Seahorse with baby in tow. Hold on..

Jellyfish (Cnidaria) are free-swiming narine animals found in all oceans from the surface to the depths, some species even in freshwater; they've been around for 500-700 million years, and therefore the oldest multi-organ animal. They have a gelatinous umbrella or bell, which pulsates for movement, & trailing, stinging tentacles.

Colorful lobster #joescrabshack
This is a lobster caught in waters around Indonesia. The site is asking if people know the species. I don't nor can I tell gender without seeing the whole claw. Certainly it's a colorful lobster. Blue lobsters in the Atlantic are very rare, but it looks like this one can fit in with the corals, seaweeds that make tropical ocean reefs so colorful. It looks like a jewel: no hot water dunking in the big pot.
