above [ Glaucilla Marginata ]
These fun creatures are so scifi looking it makes me want to blast lasers into the stars (for the second time today)... Anyway.. I thought I would collect some information on these cool little buggers and pass it on. Read on for more fun pics and learning!
above [ Glaucus Atlanticus ]
The atlanticus is the larger relative of the marginate. Roughly 5 - 8 centimeters in length, this little creature spends its time living off the east and south coasts of South Africa. It has six appendages, called cerata (dorsal and lateral limb-type structures) that fan out from its sexually indifferent body (they are hermaphrodites, which means they have both female and male parts) as IF you didn't know.
Additionally, these mini-beasts secrete a venom that can take down larger sea creatures, such as the famous Portuguese Man o' War. Seen below in the video.

All-n-all, these are pretty bad ass and cool looking creatures. Lets hope that one day they rise up and take over Earth. All in lovely scifi fashion. There is no peace when you can take down a Portuguese Man o' War.
