Thanks for the post!

This is a really beautiful creature! I am always amazed with what nature has to offer.

We better keep this to ourselves though, some company might start making shoes with their skin.

Definitely seeing some sacred geometry and that mathematical equation thing in its markings.

What is that math thing called? It can also be seen in other nature like a seashell


Are you thinking of fractals? They are wonderous, and there are many fractals in nature.

Amazing! It reminds me of Avatar.




Because the man o’ war’s venom is concentrated in the tiny fingers, blue dragons can actually have more powerful stings than the much larger creatures from which they took the poisons


So the one in the man's hand must be dead then I assume.

Shame...

Great thread and amazing pictures.

Nature ceases to blow my mind. Truly wonders to behold. The sea harbors great life both small and large.

Not a week goes by on ATS when i don't seen an amazingly beautiful picture of creatures from all over the world, now i know there was a thread a while back on sea slugs but it looks like that was a different kind. This one has a coolness to it that is on a whole other level!








This tiny creature has gotten a fair bit of attention lately because of one simple reason: It’s absolutely crazy-looking. At first glance, it resembles a Pokémon or character from Final Fantasy more closely than a real biological animal. But the Glaucus atlanticus sea slug—commonly known as the blue sea slug or blue dragon—is indeed a genuine species. And if you swim in the right places off of South Africa, Mozambique or Australia, you just might find one floating upside down, riding the surface tension of the water’s surface.

Source: Picture of the Week: Atlanticus Pokemon, er, Sea Slug


You'd almost think that little fella was a piece of jewellery or something handcrafted.


What is fascinating about this is that it has the ability to suck out the toxins from much larger species without harm to itself, then is able to use that against others.

Beautiful though.

I would put these creatures as inhabitants of Pandora. How beautiful.

It hardly seems fair calling them slugs. When I think of slugs I think of those slimey creatures that I step on in the grass at night. ( We call them homeless snails at my house.) These creatures are lovely to look at.

Of course it wasn't the first thing I thought of, silly.
The first thing I thought was how beautiful it looked.
It was only after I had gotten over the pure majestic beauty of the gorgeous creature that I began to wonder what it tasted like.


(Between you and me, and you must not tell anyone, the whole "taste" thing was a joke, but sshhhh, it's our little secret
)

Oh I agree... absolutely.
How about Butterflies of the Sea?
