Darth Vader Jellyfish






This is the Hydromedusa "Darth Vader" Jellyfish, or rather Bathykorus bouilloni.
It's a litte deep-sea jelly fish discovered around 2005 by Kevin Raskoff, and it wasn't just a new species, but a new genus! And for a nerd it kinda looks like Darth Vaders helmet, doesn't it?
