I remember reading about one species of jelly fish that served 4 ecological roles, including being a transport system in the ocean for other marine life. I figure everything we want to know about anything is contained in observing nature.

Interesting proposition though I wonder if we have the technology, yet.

I hope they don't start abusing these animals!
