Beautifully Colorful Photos Of The Lethally Venomous Portuguese Man O' War - Photographer Aaron Ansarov gets in real close to capture the gorgeous, colorful bodies of these deadly marine animals. Ansarov collects the lethally venomous creatures from his local shores in Florida, places them on his light table to photograph, and quickly returns them to the waters they were found in. :)
Man o'War was foaled on March 29, 1917 out of the mare Muhubah. Right from the get-go, people knew Man o'War was a special colt because he was born unafraid with fiery eyes like that of his immortal grandsire, Hastings.
The Portuguese Man o’ War is not one animal, but is actually comprised of colonies of invertebrate, jelly-like marine animals of the family: Physaliidae glomming together. These pelagic hydroids (or hydrozoans) colonize and are infamous for their very painful, powerful sting.
