Siphonophore: Nautilus Live marine biologists capture rare sea creature in Gulf of Mexico
Geege Schuman stashed this in Science Too
A siphonophore is not just one animal but a living colony made up of many individual organisms working together.
The creatures are related to jellies, particularly the Portuguese man o' war, which is another kind of siphonophore.
You can watch more video like this and live-streams from the nautilus expedition at their website, nautiluslive.org .
Cool, it's like a hive mind animal.
Mexican Jellies would be a great name for a band.
Yes it would!
I can't tell whether a siphonophore is cool or creepy.
Like every state that borders the Gulf in which it was found.
