5. Glasswing butterfly
This butterfly with transparent wings has a Spanish name: "espejitos," which means "little mirrors." Adult glasswing butterflies will often migrate great distances, and males of the species are known to lek, or gather in large groups for the purpose of competitive mating displays. Wow, just WOW!
4. Crocodile icefish
The crocodile icefish are found in the cold waters around Antarctica and southern South America. Their blood is filled with anti-freeze, but no red blood cells. This is what gives them their transparent appearance.
3. Transparent frog
Native to Venezuela, the Glass Frogs belong to the amphibian family Centrolenidae (order Anura). While the general background coloration of most glass frogs is primarily lime green, the abdominal skin of some members of this family is transparent, so that the heart, liver, and digestive tract are visible through their translucent skin.
2. Tortoise shell beetle
This remarkable beetle is not completely transparent, but it does have a carapace that is nearly invisible. The purpose of the transparent outer shell is to fool potential predators, as it reveals markings on its back that act as a warning. Tortoise beetles come in many different varieties; from colorful to golden!
1. Glass Squid
Found on the southern hemisphere's oceans, the Glass Squid (Teuthowenia pellucida) has light organs on its eyes and possesses the ability to roll into a ball, like an aquatic hedgehog. These squid spend much of their lives in partially sunlit shallow waters, where their transparency provides camouflage.
