I Can't See It

Did anyone else ever play with those transparent jelly-cube things that completely disappeared when you put them in the water? I think they're called ghost crystals or something. Anyway, this animal is a living ghost crystal and before you ask, it's NOT a jellyfish. Check it out:
This is actually a Moray Eel. In their larval stage (I didn't even know anything other than insects had larval stages) they're almost completely transparent. They're rarely ever seen and after watching this video, I understand why.
