This pram bug, an inch-long, translucent Phronima crustacean, may look cute, but it certainly packs a vicious punch. Upon catching their usual prey of a small marine animals called salps, females feast by utilizing their mouths and claws to devour the salp’s insides and then hollowing out the corpse. To add insult to injury, the female then proceeds to lay her eggs inside the victim’s body cavity to create a mobile, gelatinous nest for her young. (via)
