Its an older pic, but its kinda cool.

This larvae of this parasitic species floats high in the atmosphere. When it spots a potential host lower below, the balloon on its back rapidly deflates and it plummets claws-first downwards, like a javelin.

Just as it is about to strike its victim, the claws open out and tear into the hide, anchoring the creature. There it lives as a parasite on the larger animal and prepares to launch more floating larvae for the next generation.

Reminds me of creatures and ships from "The Abyss," but in the air.

So, the exact opposite in every possible way, I suppose... ^^;

I imagine this method of attack would lead to amusing casualties :XD:

Two questions:

1. Does it have internal organs? If so, where are they located?
2. Can the balloon be set on fire?
