The Psychedelic Jelly

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute gives us an up-close look at the tiny jellyfish Crossota millsae, here nicknamed the psychedelic jelly. This jelly resides in the midnight zone, more than 1000 meters (3300 feet) below the ocean's surface. Its bioluminescence highlights its anatomical structures, but also makes us want a poster of it to put in our bedrooms. (via Laughing Squid)
