Crazy Creature From the Deep

Check this video out of another, never-heard-of crazy creature from the deep.  ROV explorers captured video of this swimming colony of creatures.

crazy creatureA siphonophore is a colony of individual creatures that work together as if the colony was a living creature.  Each takes the form of a necessary part for the good of the colony.  Some develop forms for locomotion while others handle defense and feeding.  This deep-water form is crazy looking, but then so it the Man-O-War jellyfish that we are used to seeing.  It is a colony too.
