This is quite poetically known as an ocean lemon drop (Aegina citrea) - a type of hydrozoa, related to corals and jellyfish. As they swim, they sneak their stealthy stinging arms out before the rest of themselves, to snare unsuspecting prey. 📸 : @smithsoniannmnh
Ocean Lemon Drops (Aegina citrea) are stealth predators that push their tentacles ahead of their body or bell as they swim through the water. This allows their stinging tentacles to catch prey before the prey even know they are near.
