AIXIGEL WIIXIGS (Poena ángelus)

Angel wings are small, fragile, planktonic invertebrates commonly found in Poseidon's warmer waters. These animals are ctenophore analogs, and have flat, transparent bodies and pairs of wing-like paddles that give the species limited maneuverability. When they catch the light, iridescent colors shimmer across the paddles, ostensibly giving the species its name. Angel wings typically hang vertically in the water, trailing a short, thin mass of tentacles as they drift with the current.
