Predators of the Portuguese Man O' War (Physalia Physalis) include, the leather back turtle (Dermochelys Coriacea), the loggerhead turtle (Caretta Carette) and the Pacific crab (Emerita Pacifica). Some small fish also feed on the polyps and Blanket octopi (Tremoctopus violaceus)have been known to tear off tentacles and use them for their own defensive purposes.
