    Additional Information & Description

    Ok, so I had to upload this one. This is from one of the Shedd Aquariums great exhibit. They originate from the deep Atlantic waters. And a little bigger than the pods were use to seeing in our reefs. This species measures around 12" long.

    Have you ever seen it? Kind of creepy the first time. You can get extremely close mere inches. I've never seen it move, but it's always looking forwards.
