Bobtail Squids (aka Dumpling squids) are one of the smallest species of squid, ranging from 1 to 8 centimetres in length. They are closely related to Cuttlefish, although they do not possess a cuttlebone.
They are also one of the cutest animals to ever exist.
I will cuttle them whether they have a cuttlebone or not. :O If I had more good gifs I’d put one here.
Introducing the coolest relative of a jellyfish, the By-the-wind Sailor (Velella velella). The deep blue body of the creature rests on the top of the ocean with its tentacles hanging down below to catch its plankton prey. On top is the Sailor’s characteristic stiff sail which behaves much the way a sail of the ship does.
