Portuguese Man-of-War drawing artwork - Physalia physalis scientific illustration

Phylum: Cnidaria

Class: Hydrozoa

Order: Siphonophora

Family: Physaliidae

This pretty cool illustration and artwork is of the Portuguese Man-of-war (also called Portuguese Man o' War or bluebottle). The tentacles of this floating animal can actually extend up to 165 feet below the surface! This is really crazy. They are also very venomous and can sting really badly, and it leaves whip-like scars on human skin. Ouch.
