AHHHHHH! A Bioluminescent Deep-Sea Siphonophore!

I think the human race may be in trouble if these Siphonophora ever gain sentience.  Its appearance is deceiving: instead of one super freaky undersea organism, this thing actually consists of a whole colony of super freaky organisms behaving like one organsim.  In other words, it’s like the Zerg hivemind.  These things are often poisonous and can grow to be 40 feet in length.  Oh, and the individual organsims that make up a Siphonophora are called zooids, which is one of the best words ever.
