Creatures of the Deep: Underwater Astonishments!
The ocean is full of mysterious creatures like the Immortal Jellyfish, the only known immortal animal on Earth that potentially lives forever or this bioluminescent deep-sea jellyfish called the Atolla wyvillei. This bioluminescent jellyfish puts on a fascinating light show when disturbed, in an attempt to attract the attention of a larger fish to eat its predator:
Here is another great example of a bioluminescent animal: An octopus that glows in the dark:
So beautiful! In the following 6 minutes entertaining talk David Gallo shows you amazing sea creatures who live in the blackest depths of the ocean.
This is my favorite scene with the amazing octopus camouflage:
As mentioned by David Gallo during his talk “Today we’ve only explored about 3 percent of what’s out there in the ocean. There’s still 97 percent, and either that 97 percent is empty or just full of surprises.”
Who knows which kind of life forms are still out there yet to be discovered? Some of those may look like they are from another planet like this terrifying Polychaete or bristle worms:
Or maybe we discover even a so far unknown intelligent species that is going to eliminate the human race, in order to stop the devastation of the Earth’s oceans as described in the science fiction novel The Swarm by German author Frank Schätzing.
There is a whole world out there yet to be explored!
