Poster 'pods for ocean acidification

Pteropods are the ocean's poster boys for ocean acidification.  (Read about why here in this thing I wrote.)

There are sculpture of pteropods at the Smithsonian Institution.    Read about that here.

And here's a comparison of a sculpture and a live version.  The live version is definitely better, but the artist did a good job in capturing the essence of the creature.

Sculpture of Limacina helicina:
