I really wish we had the ability to explore all of our oceans easily. There is some pretty weird looking stuff that gets discovered occasionally.


Discovered by an international trio of scientists, the lobster, Dinochelus ausubeli, lives in the deep ocean water near the Phillipines. The lobster has movable, well-developed eyestalks and an inverted T-plate in front of its mouth. But its most striking feature is a mighty claw with a short, bulbous palm and extremely long, spiny fingers for capturing prey. Dinochelus is derived from the Greek words dino, meaning terrible and fearful, and chelus, meaning claw. All told, the Census of Marine Life sponsored 540 expeditions over 10 years, carried out by 2700 researchers from more than 80 countries. It was, Ausubel says, the biggest project in the history of marine biology.

It always amazes me how and what mother nature assigns to her creatures for thriving. Such odd claws/pinchers, and they must be taylor made for something, perhaps getting down in crevices or rocks?
I too would love to tour the oceans and witness the spectacle!

peace,

That's for the post!
Star for you.
It amazes me how little we know about our oceans and the creatures that call it home.

It is amazing when you think about it. The claw caught my eye as well. It looks almost like a chainsaw to me. It looks slightly menacing.

I wish we had a huge budget so allot of unmanned subs could search the deeps and chart allot of ground of the oceans to truly see what life on our planet looks like.

This lobster looks like he lost a leg? But I love this kind of news about new species. al the while we search for it off world, our own home planet shows us that there is much to discover right here on our home planet.

It is absolutely amazing the diversity of life on this planet that is not yet even known to science!

Whenever I see a new discovery I can't help but to consider cryptozoology claims and wonder "If we missed lobster cruising on the bottom of the ocean what else did we miss that is smart enough to avoid us!"

Could this be the chupacabra in its larval lobster form?
bad joke sorry

I didn't even notice he was missing a leg.... or IS he?


Some of these animals look like they could be from another world. Freaky stuff resides deep down I suppose.

That is funny. But I do tend to find myself thinking the same way. New animals are being discovered all the time And if we are still discovering after all this time, what else have we not found yet? It definately makes you think.

Just what I was thinking! I bet it would be real tasty with some garlic butter.

Ive always felt it silly to keep spending so much on space exploration when we have barely touched the discoveries on our own planet..

amazing little fella OP
Thanks for sharing!

I find it ignorant when scientists will claim with absolute certainty that no life, even bacterium, exists outside of our planet when we haven't even seen all that is hidden in the ocean.
