Sea Angels , are a gymnosome (naked body) Pteropods, i.e. a shell-less mollusk. You can see where the name comes from. There are three specimens and at least two different species in this image. These predatory creatures have evolved to swim in the water column with the rest of the zooplankton, meaning the spend their whole life as plankton instead of settling on a nice Florida beach like a clam.

A Thecosome Pteropod or Sea Butterfly. These creatures have a translucent, delicate shell made of calcium carbonate. They are planktonic, pelagic mollusks, meaning unlike clams living happily in the mud, these creatures spend their entire lives swimming with the plankton. Inside the shell you can see the liver and internal organs. Pteropod means winged foot, and they use their foot like wings to propel themselves through the water.

Just found out this is a planktonic veliger larva of a benthic snail when I have been calling it something else. These are quite common on blackwater night dives. I always usually shoot these subjects side on. This time I swam over one while it was feeding on plankton to get a different prospective. Blackwater night dive in Palau.

Underwater alien or angel of the sea? Photographer Alexander Semenov was diving near the Arctic Circle in Russia’s frigid White Sea when he spotted this colorful Clione limacina. Also known as a sea angel, the roughly inch-long C. limacina is a free-swimming pteropod, a class defined by winglike organs. The animal feasts on smaller pteropods by using its six tentacles to pry prey from their protective shells. The sea angel has evolved without a shell, and can grow up to 1.6 inches long. Its easy-to-study transparent body and its large nervous system make C. limacina a popular subject for researchers.

Part 2 - A Crown Jellyfish of the Family Nausithoidae, possibly N. Maculata feeding on a thecosome pteropod. On recent dives there has been a vast number of these little pteropods. Many types of jelly fish were trailing one or more. The pteropod is a pelagic (swimming) mollusk and is protected by a conical calcium carbonate shell. You can see the top of the cone shaped shell in the jelly’s stomach in slide 2. The shell is not problem for the jelly fish, it’s like eating ice cream from a champagne glass. This is one of the most abundant types of jellyfish (Scyphozoa) that we see. These small jellyfish are about 1cm and are very active swimmers. #uwmacro #uw #underwaterphotography #uwpics #uwlife #blackwaterdiving #natureflorida #sfups #tinywildthings #palmbeach #nausithoidae #plankton #zooplankton #invertebrate #invertebrates #marinebiology #jellyfishes #crownjellyfish #scyphozoa #crownjellies #crownjelly #naturefl #pteropod #thecosome

📷made by @rich_c_diver - Three images of a Sea Angel, a type of Pteropod, which in this case is a shell-less mollusk. You can see where the name comes from. This is the second year in a row I was lucky enough to find one while it is laying it's globular cluster of eggs. See slides 2 & 3. These predatory creatures have evolved to swim in the water column with the rest of the zooplankton, meaning the spend their whole life as plankton instead of settling on a nice Florida beach like a clam. The cloud of "bubbles" is the globular egg mass.

Flapping through the water like a squishy angel, winged pteropods are predatory snails found throughout the world's cold oceans and are an incredibly important source of food for many fish. Without these snails, entire food webs and industries would collapse because fish like salmon and cod are intimately tied to their abundance and distribution. As carbon dioxide goes up in our atmosphere, so to does it dissolve into the oceans, increasing its acidity and affecting the health of shell-building creatures like marine snails, corals, algae, and crustaceans. Let's save the snails! #oceanacidification #seaangel #pteropod #snail #climatechange #co2 #arctic #antarctica

“Through Water” This was a collaborative piece made with scientists at @biosstation. They would spill water, I would paint with it. Sometimes at 2AM. It was fantastic and they were such good sports! Also used filtered seawater for the first time. Heard a lot of mixed reviews about painting with it, but it’s holding up nicely. . . . . . #pteropod #sciart #scienceandtechnologystudies #environmentalhumanities #fluidmechanics #oceanography #biomimicry #bioinspiration #nakfi #deepbluesea

ALIEN #11: Heteropod sp - aka Sea Elephant ~4cm long. One of the freakiest creatures of the abyss, this mollusc is very different from what we commonly think of as molluscs. The foot is not a foot, but rather a swimming fin on it's back. In fact, its quite a strong, active swimmer! While I've had the pleasure of studying and photographing quite a few heteropods, this is the only one I've ever seen with the appendage leading off to the right, which I can only assume is a feeding appendage. I have several other images from this encounter which show the full length of the appendage to be about 2x its body length, or about 8cm. . . . The Alien Collection prints are now available as squares, starting at 10x10" aluminum floats, up to 57x57". Its fine to get just an individual piece, but we're encouraging people to make a collage grouping (similar to our Ocean Essence Collection). Please inquire with one of the galleries for details. . . . . . . . . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #water_of_our_world #bg_underwater #thenakedocean #aqua_gallery #underwater #underwaterphotography #ocean_space #ocean_magazine #madeofocean #padi #ChrisGug #GugUnderwater #Gug #animalplanet #seacreatures13 #scubajunkies #macro_perfection #padi #seacreatures13 #fathomlesslife #bestscubaspots #just4diver #pelagic #blackwater #blackwaterdiving #nauticam #nauticamhousings #heteropoda #pteropod #seaelephant
