leave a comment »

From the YouTube "more info":

The bloodybelly comb jelly’s sparkling display is from light diffracting from tiny transparent, hair-like cilia. These beat continuously as a form of propulsion. In the deep sea, the jelly is nearly invisible; animals that are red appear black and blend into the dark background.
