Sea Angel

Order: Opisthobranchia
Family: Clionidae
Habitat: Polar regions and tropical seas

These wonderful sea snails have fin-shaped wings that have earned the name “sea angel”. They use their wings to swim through the water and look like they’re flying. Like manta rays. These snails don’t have a shell to protect them, so rely on predators simply not noticing them - with the help of a see-through body.
