Blessing of Hokkaido's Nature ④

Ummm, it's been a while again since the last time I updated this blog, but I'll still talk about my Dou-Tou (the eastern part of Hokkaido) tour during the GW! Yuppie!

This is a pic of clione that inhabits in the Sea of Okhotsk. It is a kind of fish-eating plankton that uses its tentacles to catch and hold the feed. It's called "an angel of the ice drift" due to the transparent skin of it・・・cute, isn't?

I found it in a bottle of water at a direct sales store in fron of the Sea of Okhotsk. You can't keep clione as a pet, can you?
