Blue Angel:

Glaucus Atlanticus or blue Angel is a type of sea slug that is found in the tropic parts of the ocean. They have been noticed in the oceans of a wide range of countries namely India, Mozambique and Australia. They don’t exactly swim but float upside down in the ocean water using the surface tension of the water. They have gas filled sacs that help them keep afloat and are carried across by the ocean currents. When afloat the bright blue shade is found on the top while the bottom is grey in color. This is an example of countershading which helps protect the blue angel from predators as the slug camouflages with the water when looked from above and with the sky when viewed from below due to greyish underside. Even otherwise the slug is no easy meal. The Angel feeds on other Jelly fish or slugs even the venomous Portugese man O war which inhabit the same seas as the Blue angel. The blue angel is able to transfer the venom to its exterior limbs which delivers a potent sting when attacked. The pain is dangerous even for humans who try to handle the blue Angel. This small Angel which measures only about 3 cms when fully grown though cute and beautiful is dangerous too.

Sea Horse

Speaking about creatures from fairytales, the sea horse exactly fits the bill. The sea horse dwells in the warm tropical ocean in areas where its shallow or there is abundance of sea weed. The sea horse is unique not only in its appearance but also in how they breed too.
