Paper Nautilus (argonauts): Females of this unusual octopus species sequester themselves in thin, translucent shells with which they drift across open seas. They secrete the shells to serve as cases for their eggs but they also function as air-trapping ballast tanks, allowing the cephalopods to hang effortlessly in the water column without sinking. This is the only species known to use surface air bubbles to effectively control their  buoyancy. Credit: Robert Sisson / National Geographic
