Glaucus Atlanticus: I just discovered these last night. And like jellyfish i am pretty sure these are aliens. They do really exist in the ocean,& prey on Man-O-Wars!

Glaucus atlanticus (blue sea slug).  "These little guys are pretty awesome. They live in temperate and tropical waters, staying afloat by swallowing air and keeping it in their stomachs. They eat the venomous Portuguese Man o’ War jellyfish and keep its stings for their own defense. And they look like cycloptic alien dragons. What’s not to love?"  "This is a sea slug? But it’s so pretty!  alien  I swear  alien"
