Once again we amazed of finding a rare creature brought up from the bottom of the ocean.
I am posting two links for two different rare finds from the deep. Both rare and strange.

www.foxnews.com...




A submarine exploring the ocean's depths recently returned with an unexpected visitor: a crablike critter that has left many readers startled and horrified.


www.grindtv.com...




Mark "the Shark" Quartiano has caught thousands of sharks, but never anything like the 800-pound deep-water stingray he landed off Miami Beach

They are quite common! and date back to prehistoric times.

I also remind me of them little critters in the movie Cloverfeild

First, the first story linked too was a critter taken on a science vessel and is a year old already. and the second one is just an enormous skate.

No news here move along

While the first one is pretty creepy looking, and does look like it should be in a horror movie, the second was cool. It's neat that they get that big. I'm glad that they were able to release it though, and I hope she makes it.

Maybe someone could help me with this, but I thought if you brought something up from that deep in the ocean, the pressure change would kill them. Clearly that did not happen but does anyone know why? Was it just not deep enough?

The first is identified as Bathynomus giganteus. The gigantism is the only thing that is debated about for deep sea creatures, thought to be due to lower temperatures allowing larger cells, but the pressures must be enormous so deep. Curious when you think of all the documentary depictions of other planets having LIGHTER atmospheres with plants and animals being so big and ethereal.

I wonder if their bite makes you explode though? That scene made no sense...other than to be gross or perhaps some esoteric junk.

It just makes me wonder what they will do for food when the dead zones run out. You and I both know don't we (Joel 2).
Big as a bus and they want to SERVE us.

Those are both kind of neat. One is a pill bug's giant cousin (but I've seen similar looking things about the size of my lower arm eating seaweed off of rocks in the Chesapeake bay area - and not horseshoe crabs either, just a big isopod of some sort), and the other is a ray or skate. That ray is pretty large, but I think the show "River Monsters" had something even bigger than that fished out of some river in Thailand. It's just neat to know there's stuff out in the Atlantic which seems just as exotic as critters from even more far-off places.

They will die when the food runs out...they cannot survive on land only in the DEEP oceans.
