This is what happens when a jellyfish goes over to the Dark Side. While exploring the midwaters of the Arctic Ocean using an ROV in 2002, biologist Kevin A. Raskoff discovered a four-tentacled jellyfish that bears a remarkable resemblance to Darth Vader.
Bathykorus bouilloni is a transparent jelly with a light blue hue, the only species in the genus Bathykorus–Greek for “deep helmet”–that lives between 2,600 and 8,200 feet. It’s less than an inch in diameter, and what sets it apart are its tentacles, its biological equivalent of lightsabers.
