In this handout photo taken March 30, 2014, provided by University of Florida neurobiologist Leonid Moroz, a species of comb jelly called a Beroe has swallowed another comb jelly, called a Bolinopsis. Moroz is on a quest to decode the genomic blueprints of fragile marine life, including these mysterious comb jellies, in real time on board the ship where they were caught.

Neptune's Mask:   Depending on interpretation, this view of the ctenophore Ocyropsis maculata looks like either an ancient Greek helmet or a clamshell bucket for earth-moving machines. This large (to 6”) predator uses its broad lobes to catch small crustaceans, rolling them up like a baseball glove catching a ball. It also uses them to swim rapidly away from trouble. #Ctenophore
