Ancestor:Descendants:

The sea balloon split off from the sea bubbleweed. It has evolved to have huge balloon shaped bubbles, which allows it to float, even in the air. They use this method to keep growing out of the water, and they can get to a respectable height. The balloons are no longer used for reproduction. Instead, the sea balloon will make separate smaller bubbles, about the size of its predecessor's bubbles, to float off and make new offspring. It can be found all along the shallower coastal regions.
