Little Dudes: Siphonophores

Not only is the music and the window'd in "viewer" strange in this video, but the little dude is as well. It looks like a living Chihuly glass piece. It's not, its actually a Siphonophore.

What is a siphonophore, you ask? Well, here is the Wiki on them (if I beat you to it). Essentially, it's a colony of jellyfish-like organisms living together that look like one organism. The most famous is the dreaded Portuguese Man o'War, a beautiful but very poisonous little dude that hangs out in most all of the world's warm seas.

This little fellow was filmed at great depth, but as of yet I haven't found any more information on this particular one.



Enjoy a "little dudes" post that is probably a bit mis-labeled,
