Caption: When threatened, Acanthephyra (a deep sea prawn) emits a cloud of bioluminescent material which glows brightly for several seconds. The prawn swims away, hoping to temporarily distract potential predators. This individual was captured in a trawl at 350 meters depth in the Gulf of Mexico, 2010.
