The Dodo posted this video of a weird sea creature known as a siphonophore which consists of thousands of individual organisms known as zooids. I’m no expert, so just watch the video. It’s alive!
Scientists from the University of Aberdeen have had the first look at the life that thrives in one of the deepest spots in the ocean. The expedition to the New Hebrides trench, in the Pacific, revealed cusk eels and large bright red prawns swimming together on the seabed, 7,200m below the surface.
The ocean freaks me out. Look at these creatures. I mean, seriously, they are straight-up alien on earth. All glowy, see-through, and creepy-crawling in no specific direction whatsoever.
Just in time for Halloween! I should get one of these guys tattooed on my arm. [via]
