I have discovered my inner slime.

Here is a description from my online journal

Portuguese Man of War

Description Float 12" (30 cm) long, 6" (15 cm) high, 5" (127 mm) wide. Float gas-filled. Iridescent pale blue and pink, with large, deflatable, pink-ridged crest above. Dense cluster of 3 kinds of polyps suspended underneath. Tentacles of different lengths some more than 60' (18 m) long, containing blue, beadlike stinging cells; blue tubular feeding parts with terminal mouths and no tentacles; treelike, branching gonads, salmon-pink when mature.

Warning Highly toxic. The tentacles contain one of the most powerful poisons known in marine animals and can inflict severe burns and blisters even when the animal is dead on the beach.
