You've seen them, you've eaten them,
but you will never want to get
near these!! Do you think that a fish with long slimy tentacles sound good
enough to eat?
The Medusa is bell-shaped with a mouth
and many long tentacles that
have stingy cells. This strange animal was named after the Gorgon
Medusa. She was a maiden in Greek mythology that when ever anyone
looked at her, her hair would turn into snakes and scare the person away.
The next weird fish we are going to tell you about is the Sandy Sea
Squirt. It can be found in Alligator Harbor, St. Teresa and Carrabelle.
These lumpy brown Sea Squirts incorporate sand into their outer skins
sometimes to hide from their enemy the starfish. Their tadpole larvae have
a forerunner of a backbone making them among the most evolved of the
invertebrates. Invertebrates are any animals without a backbone.
