These creatures of the sea are rather remarkable and something you surely do not see everyday! They are like something straight out of a science fiction movie.

These tiny barrel-shaped organisms move through the water by pumping water through their gelatinous bodies, munching on phytoplankton as they go.

Sea Salps are known for their unique life cycle, during which they exist both as individuals (above) and part of a larger organism (below). Four-inch (10.2 centimeter) sea salps link together to make luminous chains up to fifteen feet (4.6 meters) long!
