Sea creature (tetraodon-pleuronecti.) by V4m2c4 Sea creature (tetraodon-pleuronecti.) by V4m2c4
Tetraodon-pleuronecti

Commonly seen lazily basking in the sun the true brilliance of the Tetraodon-pleuronecti is seen when hunting. while it is capable of efficiently hunting when un-inflated, a unique hunting adaptation is in its ability to inflate its body and activate a kaleidoscope display of color. This act mesmerizes/ hypnotizes its more aggressive and armed prey items long enough to inflict the death blow. The display is also seen during the mating season.

Interesting design. The antenna-like protrusions on its head…what are they for? Do they function in any way relatable to those on an insect?

For some very odd reason, this reminds me of the Portuguese Man of War jellyfish o.o ...maybe because I got stung by one today >.<
