Giant Siphonophore

I only know of this fish because I play Endless Ocean. 8) It's a big link of individual creatures that form a big creature! Cool, huh?

How interesting,i didnt know they had a Siphonophore and i never knew This siphonophore can grow to lengths of 130 feet (40 m), longer than the blue whale, which is usually considered Earth's largest animal. But the siphonphore's body is not much bigger around than a broomstick. Well thanks you for sharing Edme
Thanks Wolf Thief for the avvie! I love it! Ill be stalking you c:

._. that thing always creeps me out in Endless Ocean. It's such an intriguing thing though. It's also known as the Praya Dubia, by the way. Deep sea creatures tend to be the most interesting fish in my opinion.

This is incredible! I never knew such a thing existed- It's very interesting! Thanks so much for sharing. Who knew fish could interest me so much. XD I'm normally more of a mammal-reptile person, but this really caught my attention.

Fish are definitely interesting, especially deep-sea fish, like Silverness said. They have weird adaptions to live in such deep, dark waters with lights and huge mouths and stuff. ^^ Glad you found it interesting!
