Bathocyroe fosteriexternal image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRCUGHRvFHsl3OTE857WbU5WLL21XJDi2DaWQYhCaaRg7YpE4aFB. fosteri is a small, lobed ctenophore (no more than two inches long) with a beautiful blue or green bioluminescent glow. They are most commonly found in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. They eat small crustaceans. B. fosteri have many evolutionary advantages that promote the populations' survival. When in danger, they can escape danger by clapping their lobes, so that the jet of expelled water can drive it backwards through the water. They can also regenerate their cells even if half of their body is destroyed.
