I hope I never run into one of these monsters when I am surfing or doing an open water swim!
When you enter the ocean, you certainly become a item on the food chain! This beast is called a Siphonophorae! I still can't find a coherent definition of what that is but apparently it is a group of organisms that form a colony and coexist as one. This is one scary looking monster. We will never find something this crazy in outer space!
