The Marrus orthocanna is like the siphonophore which was seen earlier in this list where a group of zooids are linked together, this time by a long stem. The front is a gas-filled buoy, has an orange color, and it’s called the pneumatophore.

It has been observed in the ocean as deep as 6,600 feet (2,000 meters), but they can generally be found at depths between 660 to 2,620 feet (200 to 800 meters) in the Mediterranean Sea, the north Atlantic Ocean, the north west Pacific Ocean, the Sea of Okhotsk, the Bering Sea, and the Arctic Sea.
