Wonderful Comb Jellies

Comb jellies or ctenophora are marine invertebrates that looks like jellyfishes and swims using their combs or large cilia. They are the largest animals who use cilia for locomotion.

Comb jellies are bioluminent. They can produce light.

The above photo shows a comb jelly that belongs to the baroe family. Look at the “combs” of the creature. These are cilia.

It’s a blood belly comb jelly.

This comb jelly is known as sea gooseberry. Why? Look at the photo below to know:

Comb jellies does not have a brain or central nervous system just like a jellyfish.

Comb jellies are voracious eaters. They eat zooplankton. Here is a antarctic ocean ctenophore is eating a krill.

The Okeanos Explorer has discovered a very cute octopus at a depth of 4,290 metres.

This is the deepest an octopus of this particular sub order of octopus has ever been seen. 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration noted this is a completely unsubscribed species and perhaps not belonging to any specific genus. Highlighting how little we still know about the creatures in the depths of our oceans.

Pipefish -  A Weird Cousin of the Sea Horse

unquestionably sea horses are one of the most bizarre looking sea creatures. Pipefish, a close cousin is even weirder. Look at these fishes and you will agree with me.

Along with sea horses and sea dragons, the pipefish belong to the group Syngnathidae. There are thousands of species living in the oceans.

Like their sea horse brethren, the male pipefishes also do parenting duties like carrying eggs and also “giving birth”.

Most of the pipefish species live in the coral reefs. Some can also be spotted in sea grass beds. Here are some more photos of them.

I hope that you will enjoy this post.
