It's alive! Check this thing out...
What Is That? Underwater Drilling
Camera Catches Giant Sea Creature




TAMPA (CBS Tampa) — Did Capt. Nemo ever see anything like this when he was “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”?

A mysterious creature was caught by underwater cameras recently during deep-sea drilling near the United Kingdom.

The camera catches the giant blob – which looks brown in color and appears to have scales — floating around, with organs and appendages sticking out, something rarely ever seen before.

So … should we be afraid of this new sea creature and will it take over the world?

Steven Haddock, a scientist for the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in Moss Landing, Calif., says that the mysterious creature is a Deepstaria enigmatica jellyfish, much to the chagrin of some Reddit users who thought it was a whale placenta.

“This bag-like jelly is not that rare, but is large, so rarely seen intact,” Haddock said on his “JellyWatch” Facebook page. “In the video, the swirling from the sub makes the medusa appear to undulate and it even turns inside-out.”

This type of jellyfish is usually found in the south Atlantic Ocean, some 5,000 feet below. According to the Marine Species Identification Portal, the jellyfish has “oral arms […] terminating in curious hook-shaped organ[s].”

Imagine all the stuff we haven't seen down there in the ocean.

According to wiki they grow to 60cm. How large is this one?

That's funny about Reddit, because even though some thought it was a whale placenta, it was pointed out by several people that it was a Deepstaria, and that was the most upvoted idea.

Do you have a link to that article?

Can't say I have. We don't get latinos here so my image of a latino involves a very large brimmed hat and a taco.
