The leaf scorpionfish (Taenianotus triacanthus) is a little fish which lives near the Indo-Pacific reef. Despite his tiny body (just 10cm or 4 inches lenght) this little fish is a great hunter. When this little fish is still in the larval phase its skin is perfectly transparent to avoid predators. As an adult anyway its skin get some blue or green shades of color without losing its transparency.

The crocodile icefish (Channichthyidae) is a family of notothenioid fishes native to the Southern Ocean around Antarctica. The hemoglobin content of its blood is very low, around 1% against the 45% average of the other animals, that's why its blood appears almost transparent and colorless. Anyway this low hemoglobine content is compensate by the high oxygen content of the water in which it lives.

The Venus girdle, or Cestum veneris, is a weird comb jelly in the family Cestus. This comb jelly looks like a translucent ribbon that spread light when disturbed. This phenomenon is known as bioluminescence and it's used as a defense strategy. The Venus girdle is a pelagic species that can be found worldwide in midwater of tropical or subtropical seas.
