Creation Never Sleeps

A Jellyfish So Surreal That It Looks Unreal Is Discovered on the Enigma Seamount - If I ever worried that I’d run out of weird and wonderful new life to blog about, that fear has long been laid to rest. Take, for instance, this stunning jellyfish, discovered just four days ago by NOAA’s ship Okeanos Explorer and its ROV Deep Discoverer on the Enigma Seamount near the Mariana Trench 2.3 miles beneath the surface (3,700 meters).

How about this little guy. He is the recently discovered peacock or voodoo spider.

3,700 meters below the surface, wow! I've been diving almost 65 meters below the surface and the diminished light makes most things look brown or grey. 3,700 feet down has to be a whole new world.

NOAA doing what we pay them to do. Too bad they can't stay out of politics.
