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

It's all over for this little bugger... Caught by an Anemone, he will be digested right there, in that see-through stomach...

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 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.
