blood varieties (1559 words)
The most widely-distributed blood pigment on Earth is hemoglobin (Hb), a molecule of which consists of a porphyrin ring with a central iron atom hooked to a clump of protein called globin.
Unlike human blood, which is bright red when oxygenated in the arteries and dark red when deoxygenated in the veins, hemocyanin blood is a beautiful blue in the arteries and as clear and colorless as water in the veins.
Millions of human blood cells are broken down and rebuilt each minute of our lives, and it isn't implausible that alien organisms may have evolved a more efficient biochemical apparatus for the recycling and reconstitution of blood pigment than have Earthly animals.
