Glaucus Atlanticus: I just discovered these last night. And like jellyfish i am pretty sure these are aliens. They do really exist in the ocean,& prey on Man-O-Wars! They can store the poisons of the things they eat to create a sting that is more potent than any of their victims. Yet they are on average only 3 cm long. And they have serrated toofies =s But nonetheless I am entirely intrigued by these SciFi looking things
Glaucus atlanticus is a mollusk about the size of a quarter which hangs upside down from the surface of the water and drifts throughout the tropical oceans, maintaining buoyancy by swallowing air bubbles. (Photo by Jesús Pineda, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) #Shellfish
Blue Button Porpita porpita, commonly known as the blue button jellyfish, is not actually a jellyfish, but is a marine organism consisting of a colony of hydroids found in tropical and sub-tropical waters of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans.
