  4. The vagina salp. The whale shark. One simply drifts along with current events. The other hustles for their goals. In the Battle of the Filter Feeders, it's time to pick a side: Are you or are you ?

  8. 6/ FAQ • We know—supposedly they were named when "vagina" just meant "sheath" and not applied to anatomy yet but idk 🤷‍♂️ • "Thetys" refers to a Greek sea goddess. "Tethys" was Titan of fresh water. • They don't sting! They're closer to fishes and people than to jellyfish!

  9. 5/ • Known as "alternation of generations" this type of reproductive strategy is thought to help salp populations explode when conditions are right. • Salps may be crucial to the carbon cycle and regulating the climate, as their poo pellets sink carbon into the deep sea.

  10. 4/ • The chains reproduce sexually, beginning life as females and producing eggs. • When the female chain has been fertilized by a male chain, solitary salps are produced. • The female chain then becomes a male chain and will fertilize younger female chains.

  11. 3/ • Solitary salps produce the chains asexually—you can see a rope of clones (the stolon) forming in the salp's "belly," each small orb being the gut of one salp in the chain. • Chains of the clonal individuals can be tens of feet long. The chain here was about 3 feet long.

  12. 2/ • These are salps—filter-feeding, gelatinous drifters. • Their scientific name is Thetys vagina. • Vagina salps come in two morphs: solitary (📸 1) and chains (📸 2) • Joe Platko took these photos this week off Cannery Row. Thanks Joe!

  13. 1/ Are you sitting down? Get comfy, this one's a doozy: Here's a PSA about the alternation of generations and sequential hermaphroditism of Thetys vagina salps.
