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

wow im actully a little freaked out for real. i mean how many more tings like this are we gona find in the depths of our own oceans. are they gona rise up and kill us all
just remamberd my avater is a deep sea fish and bathed in the irony
Deep sea creatures are made of win.
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.
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.
Check out my sketchbook? updated 02.01
Why do things in the ocean look so alien?
There are just as many alien things on land.
I guess the shroud of the deep sea just makes them more exotic.
yea seening has how the ocean is like 95% unexplored there is probly some insane shit down there.
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.
reminds me of the aliens from independence day! "release meeeeeeeeeeee" =)
wow its beautiful. I have seen pictures of these types of squid but to see in a video like that is something. haha it looked like the camera man was panicking for a moment.
Now that's a sexy squid right there.
Here's another video of ot. Moving a bit more.
