I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some images taken by the Queensland Brain Institue of deep sea creatures photographed at depths over 1,000 metres.

Have inlduded a link to The Sydney Morning Herald;

Nice find!
I like the 5th and 6th ones. The 5th one looks like what a ufo could look like.

Are those eyes and mandibles on pic # 6, looks insect like.

Hi speculative optimist,

The 6th one is also my favourite - The eyes of a deep-sea amphipod crustacean - another paper commented that it almost looks like a monk in a hood....

Think it's wonderful we're still discovering new forms of life.

I took one look at #6 and thought "Panda-bear Fish"

The amphipod crustacean reminded me of Kenny from South Park.
Interesting find The Wave, much enjoyed.

I like the 12th one, the Jelly Fish.

I had no idea they could be red

Thanks for sharing.

I love stuff like this

If "god" created everything, then he must have been on acid when he created these things.

Several look like something out of a nightmare; whilst others are pure fancy. Judging by the size and design of some of those teeth, its not exactly a fun place to live down there. whew! Makes u glad to be human for once.
