    Awesome! I heard about these, but I've never seen a video like that before. Now I want to see how they swim.

    That's pretty insane. Reminds me of a Cloverfield mystery site I saw awhile ago where they stage an underwater alien discovery. (Not implying this is staged.)

    That is the scariest, most awesome and hugely inspiring picture I've seen on the Internet in some time. Thank you!!

    I'm just sitting here, thinking about it. Imagining going down there in a bathysphere to find it.

    [edit] I just watched the video, HOLY CRAP! I didn't think the tenticles would be that long!

    Why are you all so freaked out by this? I think it's AWESOMELY cool, but not freaky in any way.

    You wouldn't be freaked out if this swam up to you in the ocean?

    Well yeah, if I was just swimming, I'd be quite freaked out. But why be scared of a video that you're watching from the safety and comfort of your home that, if you read the article, is a scavenger/trapper. I'd be much more scared of some kind of shark than that... and I love sharks.

    naw, they won't.... pretty soon the oil companies will have destroyed the deep sea just to squeeze the last little bit of resource out of this planet. So dont worry, we'll have destroyed things we didnt even now about. Its better that way. :/

    Jake, fear is subjective. Different people are scared by different things. I'm one who is afraid of the deep sea itself, that large mass of water which, if I was in the middle of, would be completely vunerable. Let alone all the otherworldly creatures. But I am just as frightened by it as I am fascinated.

    I doubt deep sea creatures could survive up here. Just as the pressure down there would crush our soft bodies, the lack of pressure up here would likely cause their bodies to fall apart.

    Max Challie, that's the exact reason why noone has been able to catch a giant squid alive. Which is really a shame... I'd love to have a giant squid in an aquarium

    There are just as many alien things on land.
    I guess the shroud of the deep sea just makes them more exotic.

    Things in the deep ocean look more alien because their relation to people and everyday animals is much more distant. Not only did their evolutionary path break off a very long time ago, but they evolved and developed in a radically different sort of environment. One with almost no light, no air, deadly amounts of pressure, very little plant life, and hydrothermal vents everywhere. Most of the traits that familiar animals have are pretty worthless in a place like that.

    We, as well as all lifeforms, are products of our environment. Creatures grow and adapt to live in their environment. Even with humans, people are different based largely on the environments and cultures they experience.
