The sea angel (Clione limacina) is a free swimming sea slug that lives in northern arctic waters. It is the largest of the cliones reaching a maximum length of 5cm. They feed almost exclusively on sea butterflies, thecosomatous, they do this by approaching the sea butterfly then shooting 6 tentacle-like buccal cones from the top of their head. They are mutual hermaphrodites and when they meet will fertilize one another. They then lay their eggs in free floating gelatinous masses. I think the video below does a better job describing the weirdness of this animal then I can.
