Giant Clam*

Giant clams, or Tridacna, like this one can have colorful mantle tissue, including bright blue. Eight species of Tridacna, most threatened by over-harvesting, live in shallow waters of the South Pacific and Indian Oceans. (Photo by Jésus Pineda, WHOI)

Blue Button Jellyfish *

This stunning jellyfish is found mostly in the tropics and floats just near the water's surface. The circular disc is made of chitin and filled with gas, allowing these jellies to float. The tentacles (zooids) radiating from the disc do all the feeding. (Photo by Kelly Rakow, WHOI)
