Blue Minyad (Minyas Cyanea)

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“The Blue Minyad is a type of a family in which the base of the body, in place of extending itself in a disk-like form, in order to grapple with the rocks and other projections at the bottom of the sea, turns itself inward, forming a sort of purse, which seems to imprison the air. From this results a sort of hydrostatic apparatus, aided by which the animals can float in the water and transport themselves from one place to another.”
