A Deep Sea Camera Goes As Far As It Can…And Surfaces With Footage Of THIS! Scary!!
If someone said “Stygiomedusa Gigantea” I would probably respond with “bless you.” They must have sneezed. It turns out those words describe a type of sea creature that only exists deep, deep, under the ocean’s surface, and it looks exactly like it sounds.
When I see things like this, alive and thriving deep under the ocean, it makes me think about what else could be down there lurking even deeper. So much of the world is left unexplored, and I love that there is still so much left to discover.
The video starts out with a dark blue screen with just the hint of something lurking deeper. Slowly and steadily, the creature moves forward with the current and twists and turns as it pleases. It is one of the largest breed of jelly fish ever discovered, and my favorite part of this video is seeing the jelly fish seemingly turn inside-out as it floats upside down. I’m not sure if this jelly fish has control of its giant fin-like tentacles, but it looks like it does at the 1:40 mark. What do you think?
