Deep Sea Monsters
Really neat vid. It just makes you wonder. There's so much on our own planet that's not been discovered. Imagine what's out in the vastness of space.
Mkaele mbembe proves that dinosaurs still run around somewhere. Look up Ngoubu, by the way. They find new stuff everytime they go down to Titanic, just because it's so unbearable for humans. Imagine what's at the bottom of the Laurentian Abyss.
We have NO idea as to what is actually on our planet. Cloverfield may be out there for all we know.
43 seconds in is what they used to make that horrid photoshop of those deseased fingers that has been floating around.
I feel better now knowing for sure it WAS just a photoshop.
that's one huge jellyfish.
But how do they taste?
that was pretty cool
Yea, 0:27. Is that real? Holy shit....
apparently yes. They're called Nomura's jellyfish.They can grow up to
6 feet 7 inches and weigh up to 450 lbs. They reside primarily in the waters between China and Japan.
here's the wiki about them. Nomura's jellyfish - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I've been stung by plenty of jellyfish but I'd sh*t myself if I saw one of those.
Oh wow. That was kinda cool.
In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.
wtf is that thing at 3:25 that looks like an overgrown flea
One thing i have never understood and am mesmerized by:
we got fish and things at depths that we have to build massively thick machinery in order to reach.
how does flesh and blood do what a sub can't?
and gawd, that one fish with the really long tooth, if he ain't careful, he'll poke his eye out, lol
At 1:40 is the grumpiest-looking fish I've ever seen.
Video's awesome, but I'm afraid it still loses points for no gulper eels.

I was very fascinated by that video of all those Deep Sea creatures. Not only are there creatures on our planet that await to be discovered, but one such Deep Sea creature is said to be bigger than the blue whale. However, the only lead we have on such a creature is the Bloop noise that the NOAA picked up in '97. And it was only heard once, too! So I can imagine that it'll remain an enigma for quite sometime.
Aye! Hail Cthulhu!
I heard that the Colossal Squid is thought to grow as big as the blue whale.

Cthulhu hells yeah!
That video is cool as ALL hell. I really got a kick out of it with the giant stingrays and jellyfishies and the smiling fish I love so much. :3
Besides a whole bunch of dead robots?
Our machinery has to be that thick, because we can't pressurize the insides. Deep sea organisms are quite capable of pressurizing their insides, to match the water around them.
Yep. Because humans (and all air-breathing animals) fill their lungs with air they experience increasing pressure at deeper and deeper depths. But, fish and such don't have that air filled cavity since their gills extract oxygen directly from the water. Also, it should be mentioned that deep sea organisms have been accustomed to these pressures. I think I saw somewhere that if you brought one of these creatures closer to the surface that they'd die because of the decrease in pressure. So just as we can't live down there, they can't live up here.
