Here is an image of a “Clione” and is also known as a “ice chair angel” or “ice fairy”. The typical size of such a creature is extremely small at about 1 cm in size, but in Japan’s Hokkaido-Okhotsk Drift Ice Science Center, the “cliones” are unnaturally huge at more 3 cm in size. One of the largest “cliones” is shown here and it is just over 4 cm! These images were posted on Facebook and became an immediate topic of discussion with online viewers worldwide!

Wow! That’s big! Please compare it with the “clione” beside it.

It is about 4 times bigger than the normal sized “clione”! This is amazing!

By the way, a “clione” is related to snails but have no shell and has six tentacles called “backcourns” and its appearance when eating enlarges an area of the “clione” called a “buccal cone” making the angel appear to look like a devil!

Please take a look and watch the extended video below.

I’d love to see a bunch of “clione’s” attempt to eat each other!
