Hi, I'm new here. I've read for a year or more though. My background is in Zoology and a mior in PALENTOLOGY Oceanography.

Basically I believe there are animals we have no discovered yet. In fact I know there are animals being discovered everyday. Though mostly frogs, lizards, and smaller creatures, often larger animals, even primates have been discovered in very remote areas, and the animals themselves prefer to live in solittude, so it makes it that much harder. Often indegenous people can be invaluable in identifying new species.

I am FASCINATED by the trenches and the race to the "bottom" by Sir Richard and James Cameron. Their subs are able maneouver in the pitch black strata of the sea Epipelagic Zone ,Mesopelagic Zone Bathypelagic Abyssopelagic Zone - and Hadalpelagic Zone .

Lately I am interested in the sea of cortez and what appear to be MEGA sized humbolts.

So, I'm all for animals we HAVE seen but only carcasses. I'm all ofr animals spoken about in legend both land and sea,. So I guess you could call me a CYRPTOZOOLOGIST.

I think there is a lot still out there to be discovered and I find it very exciting, It's my passion. Wish I had more money to fund scientific expeditions.

Anyway,nice to meet some of you here!

Welcome aboard. You sound very knowledgeable about what you do. Someone I could learn a few things from.

So let's start with this......What's a humbolt? Is it an animal or an oceanographic term?

Humboldt Squid. There are some HUGE ones out there, but I think she means she hopes to see even larger ones!

Welcome to ATS.

I think you'll find the following thread to be a good resource:

Good Grief!!! APOLOGIES for my intro. It was late and I THOUGHT I was ok to type and talk, but clearly I was three sheets to the wind. So very sorry for my spelling etc, I was a bit "out there".

Thank you for the kind welcome.
It's good to meet so many people interested in the same subject.

And yep, by humbolt I meant the squid.. They're smart buggars, they hunt in packs and communicate by flashing a myriad of colors. They also can be very mean, and they remember too...they have specifically sought out and gone after researchers who placed cameras on them before. I think they're very smart. Recently a humbolt or giant squid was photographed, it's hard to tell if it was a humbolt, but if it was, it was the largest one ever seen before. We're talking massive scale and I do mean stunningly massive. Even if it were a giant squid, we've not seen them in the sea of cortez of that size and on film. What lurks in the deep waters of the sea of cortez or any body of water, intrigues me to no end!

Recently some fishermen caught a 20 foot great white shark, roughly 2000lbs. Took them an hour to get it to shore. It was dead when they pulled it up so bringing it in was just so they could look at it. We know such large sharks in in those waters, but this was very unusual size wise.

Hi, BlueFox. Friendly welcomes! Now I must bug you.

Humboldt! See the "D"? Apparently, sometime in the old west a guy named "Humboldt" left his mark. (I have family in Humboldt Arizona.) This is more nitpicky than I normally get but I'm guessing this matters, given your interest in those big aggresive squishies. (May you never meet one without a cattleprod!) Safe hunting and academeic kudos. (And, seriously, they hate you.)
