Por cierto Yama, para la nueva mision creo que estaria bien que añadieras Panama en el titulo por que Fauna de la Costa Atlantica puede ser interpretado como muchas otras areas del mundo. Aunque pongas el mapa del area seguro que habra gente que igual no lo mira y te añaden spottings que no son de las costa panameña. Yo me he apuntado. Estuve hace 7 años en Panama y con los kuna y me encanto! :-)

Welcome to the Community Yama, and congratulations, your great capture has earned you Spotting of the Day! With tentacles that can extend as far as 50 meters below the ocean's surface, the Portuguese man-of-war is one of the world's longest organisms! They are covered in venom-filled nematocysts used to paralyze their prey, and even dead man-of-wars washed up on shore are capable of delivering a painful sting.
