Related to the jellyfish and corals, Siphonophore is a continuous chain of specialized polyps - individual animals that grow from one another in an organized colony. Some in the colony are devoted to feeding, armed with stinging cells to snag fish or invertebrates. Others are devoted to locomotion, propelling the whole group with a continuous pumping motion while some exist only to reproduce.
