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?

Look at me! The eye of a John Dori, looking at his reflection in the lens. The JD actually stopped and stayed motionless, staring at his reflection for about a minute...

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?

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.
