My thoughts exactly! LOL

It would be so cool if the thing they have found in the sea turns out to be a creature like this, but I doubt it... it will probably be a big ball of cooled magma from a volcano or something boring like that!

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the picture - cocktail sauce...

the second thing that came to mind - I for one welcome our new crustacean overlords..

Seriously though cool find.. We have found some more "living fossils", discovered species that we thought were extinct but arent. Currently scientists are on a 10 year mission to catalogue / explore the ocean...

While that thing is big, I am hoping for the announcement that they have found a megladon...

Nature is just scary at times...

And also the odd part about the bottom of the ocean is that its never witnessed a full extinction, like above the water has... these species have been around for millions of years, the exact same way.... Crazy. Earth will never cease to amaze me..... I hope...

I bet these are mean little critters when alive. They remind me of giant prawns, and if you have ever physically gone out and caught your own prawns you will know they can be MEAN little monsters. They SNAP their bodies and it almost sounds like an electric zap because they do it so fast, and it hurts if you get hit...lol I can't imagine what these things do when they first come out of the water.

Holy cow, I don't know why people are so busy looking for aliens on other planets when we already have gobs of them in our oceans, LOL! That thing looks totally otherworldly. Wow.

Edit- for those who can't/ won't/ don't wanna click on the link in the OP, here's the pic:



Per the dimensions in the OP they're over a foot long. Imagine you're swimming along and get enveloped by a school of dozens or hundreds of these things, they probably couldn't hurt you but personally I think I'd die from freak-out-edness

This is interesting but I wished you wouldn't have posted it. Things coming out of the ocean 20 times their natural size! Here comes the Godzilla threads and the people who want to blame the Japanese earthquake on something other than the earth.

I think I see where you're heading with this, it's radiation leakage from Fukushima!!! The HAARP people, who love shrimp cocktails, generated the earthquake to start a tsunami which caused the Fukushima disaster that leaked melted fuel rods into the ground which then leached into the ocean via groundwater because they wanted giant shrimp cocktails! It's like a big Rube Goldberg machine

Neat article and good info! Here's just one more example of the arrogance of human "science". These critters are fluorishing in an area of the ocean that was deemed "too cold" "too dark" and "too high pressure" to even have life. Well there you go. Not only life, but life "as we know it" kickin' it 11km down. But science will continue to tell us where conditions will and will not allow life to exist? Bullsh!t.

That's pretty big for it's species. If I saw a sandcrab that size, I'd probably be scaring people with it at the beach.

Yeah, definitely, wrapped in tin foil that is!

Probably taste good with butter, and not that "I can't believe it's butter" crap.
