Awesome Arctic Animals

Answer: Jellyfish
  NEXT -->



Nuvalqiq means jellyfish in Inuktitut.

Translucent flower of the deep
Dancing slowly on the waves
Pulsating rhythmically
A hypnotic display of aquatic ballet

Oh, don't be lulled by its delicate grace
For its dance is designed to envelope its prey
Its touch brings a sting
Its hug is disintegrating
Incorporating its victim, transpicuously
Into its flowing choreography.
