Sea Mouse (Aphrodita)

The Sea Mouse (Aphrodita) is a photonic wonder of the natural world. A polychaete worm, it resembles a mouse because its top is covered in hairs. When incident light strikes the hairs, their crystaline structures tune the reflectance and make new colors appear. The efficiency of refraction is on par with the most state of the art fiber-optics engineering technology.
