Transparent Sea Spider

Description from Flickr...

This half inch long sea spider is an amazing form of life. It has no lungs or gills, transmitting gasses directly through it's slender exoskeleton. The digestive tract extends down it's legs and is clearly visible here as snaky, colored tubes inside the transparent exoskeleton.
