www.silvertipworld.com - In the freezing waters of Svalbard, beyond 79 degrees north, an unusual predator is feeding on the abundant plankton. This is a type of ctenophore, or comb jelly - the name derives from the hair-like structures running down their length, which are used for movement. This jelly has swallowed an animal called a larvacean, a type of plankton that exists in huge numbers in these waters. This particular meal tries to escape - watch to see what happens!
