I just fell in love:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clionidae

Clionidae is a family of sea angels, which are a group of pelagic marine gastropods.

They are shaped a little like angels, and have flapping "wings", hence their common name. They are gelatinous, mostly transparent pteropods, and they only have shells in their embryonic stage. They are mostly very small, with the largest species (Clione limacina) reaching 5 centimeters (2 in).

The Clionidae use winglike flaps for rhythmical locomotion, as if flying in the sea. These "wings" are attached to the anterior part of the body. The posterior part is gelatinous and mostly transparent.

The orange visceral sac is confined to the anterior part.


They live in cold water, eat only once in their lifetimes, and produce offspring on their own, without mating.


And i want this so much:



It's around $1000US, but someday when i'm rich.....



Hello Kitty has even dressed as one:
