The strange creature discovered in Olivenca coast, Bahia state, Northeastern Brazil, in late December of last year.

The sea creature has body like hyaline light purple balloon. The head part is slim and dark. Running along its spine there is a prominent vein. The tail part has several dark purple long tentacles. With this shape, it is very easy to be confused with jelly-fish in the ocean.

In fact, the creature belongs to Siphono-phore species, scientific name is Physalia Physalis. It usually lives in tropical marine areas.

Almost species has no possibility to move that must depend on water current or tide.

It has eye-catching shape, but this is quite dangerous creature species. Researchers warned beachgoers when they catch marine organism species because of its poisonous tentacles. It also uses this dangerous ability to paralyze its prey.
