Do you know what this is?

 
If you can't identify the organism in the photograph then read The Beautiful Angel of Death on Catalogue of Organisms.

Life is stranger than most of us realize.

  1. That'easy. It is nudibranch, probabily a bubble raft snail Janthina sp.

    And I did not look at the catalogue.
    So long and thank for all the blog.

  2. Its some type of nudibranch. If you dive in Canada's west coast you'll see a lot of these, although not as colourful. Some are quite large - football sized in some cases.
