This baby Bobtail Squid came quite close, investigating the Alien intruders, visiting his world. Did you know that a Bobtail Squid is emitting just enough bio-luminescence towards the sea-floor to make him invisible against the surface?

This is Oceanic Art - the tail of a juvenile Slipper-lobster glows in beautiful colors, just before he propels himself out of sight with a couple of contractions.

A Mediterranean Bobtail Squid in its near-perfect stealth mode. They use their arms and suckers to cover themselves with sand and debris. When their pray gets close, they shoot up and catch it. Did u know that they emit bio-luminescence?

This is probably what a crab sees when it looks down its arms... Did you know that these hairs can pick up water movement as small as the equivalent of the energy of a few photons (much like the body-hair on spiders). :o

An unknown species of plankton. I actually found this by chance, since it could only be seen when lit from the side or from behind - as it is fully see-through and only 2cm long...

Not only are these embryonic squid (Loligo vulgaris) protected by their see-through eggs, but these translucent walls also allow their developing vision to be stimulated constantly,- a sense that squid use intensely when hunting...

With a size of just over 4mm, this Skeleton Shrimp is nearly invisible to the naked eye. As you can see in this picture, it is not hard to see where Hollywood get their inspirations for Alien movies...

With a size of just over 4mm, this Skeleton Shrimp is nearly invisible to the naked eye. These amazing creatures pack a mighty punch, when they use their razor-sharp blades to catch prey.

The markings on the face of the Seahorse (Hippocampus hippocampus) are unique to the individual and can be used to identify single characters around a dive site.

The development of SQUID is visible in the picture. These eggs are about 3mm in diameter and when the little squid inside has used up all the nutrients in that "egg-ball" he is attached to, the see-through shell of the egg breaks open.

Two stages of development of SQUID are visible in the picture. These eggs are about 3mm in diameter and when the little squid inside has used up all the nutrients in that "egg-ball" he is attached to, the see-through shell of the egg breaks open.
