Go go copepods!!

That’s the sound they make. Just watch Blue Planet. You’ll see.

You’ll also see how they fire bioluminescent depth charges as an escape mechanism.

National Geographic has some stunning images of translucent creatures. Many are prettier than the copepod, but few are dearer to my heart.

Be sure to check out the related galleries too.
