Finalist, Underwater Species � �Jelly Fireworks� by Geo Cloete | The Most Astonishing Photos That Won Awards In 2014
“Geo never forgot the vast swarm of box jellyfish he encountered when diving in Hout Bay off Cape Town, South Africa. He had no camera then, but the experience sparked a passion for jellyfish. He fantasised about creating a picture of a huge mass of them, moving ‘like a firework display in slow motion’, their tentacles like star trails. It was seven years before he came across another mass gathering.” –Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014

Underwater Animals, Predator, Life Sea Creatures, Famous Defense, Sea Cucumbers, Awkward Spaces, Ocean Animals
10 Underwater Animals with Amazing Abilities - Sea cucumbers have a famous defense mechanism, they discharge their guts at predators, and regrow them later. Another little known defense mechanism they have is their ability to liquefy themselves. Essentially, they unhook the bonds that keep their cells together and let themselves flow into (or out of) awkward spaces.
Sea cucumbers may seem pretty boring at first sight, but there's much more to them than meets the eye. These little guys have one of the most wonderfully disgusting animal defense mechanisms. When threatened, the sea cucumbers begin to violently shake their bodies and then… they shoot their intestines out of their anus! The sticky mess entangles the attacker and usually makes it run away (screaming "Eww, gross!", I figure).

Jellyfish invasion in the White Sea by Alexander Semenov
Aurelia aurita (also called the moon jelly, moon jellyfish, common jellyfish, or saucer jelly) is a widely studied species of the genus Aurelia. All species in the genus are closely related, and it is difficult to identify Aurelia medusae without genetic sampling; most of what follows applies equally to all species of the genus. The jellyfish is translucent, usually about 25–40 cm (10–16 in) in diameter, and can be recognized by its four horseshoe-shaped gonads, easily seen through the top of the bell. It feeds by collecting medusae, plankton, and mollusks with its tentacles, and bringing them into its body for digestion. It is capable of only limited motion, and drifts with the current, even when swimming. Photograph by Alexander Semenov

Cecropia Moth.. Cecropia Moth Female Cecropia moths, like many other species, produce pheromones to attract mates. Following this scent can be dangerous for male Cecropia moths, however. Bolas spiders are able to mimic these pheromones and eat whichever male moths show up!-

Jellyfish are the major non-polyp form of individuals of the phylum Cnidaria. They are typified as free-swimming marine animals consisting of a gelatinous umbrella-shaped bell and trailing tentacles. The bell can pulsate for locomotion, while stinging tentacles can be used to capture prey. Jellyfish are found in every ocean, from the surface to the deep sea. A few jellyfish inhabit freshwater. Large, often colorful, jellyfish are common in coastal zones worldwide. Jellyfish have roamed the seas for at least 500 million years, and possibly 700 million years or more, making them the oldest multi-organ animal.

Alexander Semenov Weird Space, 2012 ”Red Sea in February is full of strange translucent creatures. It’s the jellyfish, ctenophores and salps. They have appeared on our planet long before us, but now for us they look like alien race, but not the typical representatives of the animal world. Ocean and the creatures who inhabit - it’s another universe, the cosmos, and you can see it by yourself.”

A giant squid stars in this still image taken from the footage Edie Widder shot. It's the first-ever video of these giant squids, and it'll debut in a Discovery Channel documentary airing in late January.
For centuries the giant squid has been the stuff of legend, but now, for the first time ever, scientists have collected footage of a giant squid, (Architeuthis), in its natural habitat, thousands of feet below the ocean's surface. "All of us were so amazed at what it looked like," Edie Widder, a marine biologist who was part of the successful video making mission, told the Los Angeles Times. "It looked carved out of metal. And it would change from being silver to gold. It was just ...
