Angel of the sea… when the appearances are deceptive

Clione limacina (more known as angel of the sea) is a precious transparent, devoid clam of carapaça, that nothing for frozen waters of the sea of gracious form, moving appendices that remember the small wing of angel. But this lesma sea, although the innocent aspect, hides a demon in its interior.

When hungry clione crosses with its relative with shell, the butterfly of the sea (helicina Limacina), quickly extracts the six tentáculos in form of hook of its head, grasping its canine tooth and succionando the entire body of its victim until it only remains carapaça.
