Weird deep sea stuff thread
>>3856619did it get fucking shredded by the propellers at the end?
>>3856794I don't remember if it's that exact species, but there is a giant deep sea amphipod that extracts aluminum from the sea floor mud and uses that to strengthen it's exoskeleton. It wouldn't be able to withstand the pressures otherwise
>>3856619I'd be so sad if as the operator of that submersible.I found something so cool, a deep sea organism that had never been graced by light before, possibly decades of deep existence prior, and then I accidentally tear it into pieces with the same machine meant to explore and discover them.
>>3856810Its probably mating cuttlefish and they just got separated. You can kind of see how it's two animals
>>3856813It's a comb jelly, Ctenophore, a very fragile deep sea animal. The organized sort of pose we see at first is the feeding position, those lobes serve to funnel food into the filter apparatus. It closes up as the submersible approaches in an attempt to escape.
Life down there seems so alien. It's like being on another planet (aside from the fishes, although weird are still quite fish like).
I-I'm not ugly, I just have decompression sickness, anon
>>3856800That would be Hirondella gigas, a different species that lives in trenches.The other giant is associated with whale falls.
>>3856882cuttlefish are based. When im more experienced with saltwater aquariums i'd love to have one.
>>3856619Lmao dumb ass lil nigga got shredded like a tissue
>>3856904Closest thing to an actual shape shifter there is.
>>3856904If they're based, why do you want to keep one in captivity?
>>3856771>Legs by ZZ Top
>>3856838>The timeline where he didn't do it.
>>3857335This is the video that made you come to this conclusion?
>>3856922Why, to provide it with a happy and fulfilling life in a safe, predator-free environment of course.
>>3857558Is that a symbiotic shrimp and siphonophore?
>>3857653It is definitely not a symbiotic relationship. The tube shaped organism is actually the dead body of a salp. The amphipod attacks the salp and eats the animal's body until only a hollow barrel is left. It then lays it's eggs inside and uses the corpse as a way to transport the larvae around as they develop.
>>3856827He's actually a handsome chap.
>>3857654Is it cooming?
>>3856769I would imagine this is one fish that Asians couldn't eat. Look at all the lights! It must be poisonous to humans!
Would these animals get fucked up by suddenly being exposed to a ray of light?
>>3857059someone post the memes about this
>>3856791>>3856760>>3856796so many designs
>>3856760Thanks man I'd been trying to remember the name of this guy lately.
>>3856833>we have narwhal at home
>>3857059What if that was the only example of that entire species that has survived.
>>3858844Now I'm sad.
>>3858222Anon, they already eat poisonous pufferfish.
>>3859236War of the Worlds
>>3856619I thought that was fake?
>>3856810I would just cut that part out of the video and try not to do it again
>>3858222Is there's 1 square inch on it that isn't poisonous, they will grind that part into a powder to help combat erections
>>3859080Glad these things live too deep to be poached.
What is this animal at 7:10? https://youtu.be/woTi--GCzwM?t=430
>>3859395Some kind of salp, I guess?
>>3856810If it makes you feel any better videos like this with the screen readouts are people working for oil and gas companies and they use the subs to check deepsea pipelines and valves.
>>3858844>>3857059Samples for analyses you goofs
>>3857062Sad little man
>>3857335>boohoo noooo not the hecking water plantinooo!!!
Ever had that fear of just doing random shit and suddenly being teleported in the middle of the ocean, it's completely dark and some creepy animal just start swimming toward you?
>>3860168pls no.My only comfort is that if I were suddenly teleported to the deep ocean I would die of being instantly crushed by the pressure long before I drowned or got eaten by some horrifying vore monster.
>>3857558What is the yellow thing?
>>3859359its like silent hill tier down there
>>3860188Well, that's the exact same thing I had in mind as a way of no longer thinking about it, doesn't seem to work well.
>>3859080These things are fucking cool as hell
>>3856841Mom said it's my turn on the xbox
>the Belgian is here
>>3860194i honestly think it is silent hill down there sometimes
>>3858798>those eye movements
imagine the smell and taste of these creaturesmakes me fucking retch
These fish can live below 5000 meters
>>3859236HeeeyNow that's the kinda booty you like to hump
>I stopped the thread
>>3861220>"he's fast">not "sensitivity set to 200"
>>3861220>Hey /v/, what are some scary vidya games?
>>3859236Everyday something really interesting sends me down an information quest, today this is it.
>>3861264Some hermit crabs just stick up anemones up their shells for protection, it's a symbiotic relationship (anemone gets scraps of food, I imagine), and only a few specific hermit crabs know how to "peel" them off whatever rock they're attached to, because they don't give in for anything else.This... doesn't look like a hermit crab, but I guess it works the same.>>3860758Do you have G but in bigger? Siphonophores are great.
>>3856760>"Giganto"-cypris>barely an inch across
>>3856769Are those lights, or just reflections from a submersible light?
>>3857668It's also part of the inspiration for the life cycle of the aliens in the Alienmovie.
>>3860168Is that really you, my liege? My King? One of the few posters in this site that I respect?
>>3861574Quit stalking me, narrator.
>>3861752Not him, why did you leave the hallowed halls?
>>3861771The threads are growing stale, not much entertainment to be found anymore, I'll be back when we get some interesting news on the movies.
>>3861773It's true that the threads have been shitty lately due to the massive increase in newshit posters who are low-quality, but when all the good posters leave there will be no one left to steer the ship into the direct direction. I have been in your stead before and left the threads for some time a while back, back then good posters were aplenty but now it's the opposite. Some of the newfucks are unironical SHITcord users. I will try my best to uphold the laws of the den but it would be appreciated if you lended me a hand.
>>3861988Gay. Just let the world burn
>>3861773I'm one of the most frequent posters on /dbs/ and even I've taken months long breaks every once in a while. Something always pulls me back eventually, but I'm pretty sure it's normal to get bored or distracted from the non-stop posting.
>>3859330I mean, it doesn't look fake to me
>>3856810on his shoes I wouldn't even bother trying to touch the creature,just contemplate it
>>3856619What is this called again?
>>3857671Has any other animal become more memed by a picture of its corpse than the blobfish? I can't think of any other animal that people think is weird-looking but it's actually just the dead thing
>>3861159They probably taste like salt water and bitter oil, they barely have any actual flesh to taste in most cases. I struggle to imagine what that smells like though
>>3861433I'm pretty sure it's the submersible lights. It wouldn't make sense light up like that because it would attract so many predators. Red light gets filtered out extremely quickly as you go deeper under water so animals that are red appear to be invisible
>>3858798Its teeth look almost translucent, what's with that?
>>3863405Globster I think?Most if not all of them are just decomposed whale corpses
Requesting video of mantis shrimp heeming octopus
>>3863412Great footage, that squid looks pretty big.
>>3863670glad they saved the fish but there's something undeniably creepy about how this video looks and feels
>>3863670why is he swimming like that? still disoriented?
>>3856785Holy shit it straight up just split in half
>>3859074Fucking sea aurora borealis
>>3863682Probably, a lot of fish require continuous movement to circulate oxygenated water through their gills, and will begin to starve of oxygen if they are forced to stay still for too long. It's probably somewhat dazed and hypoxic.
>>3862738plastic sheeting pinned to the seafloor, nothing to see here.
>>3861988why so many newfags?
>>3861988I dunno man, I came to this thread to see deep see creatures and I saw deep sea creatures, seems like everything is working fine
>>3861220>not posting the dragon ball editngmi
>>3856797That gives me an idea for a designer lamp
>>3863405Most animals that died out before the advent of photography maybe. Even the Dodo in a way.
>>3863700Goblin sharks do look like that when their jaws are extended for biting something.
>>3857335go live in a cave
>>3861988>Some of the newfucks are unironical SHITcord users.>pretending this entire board wasn't in the official discord a year ago
>>38593831. heat up the ocean2. poached squidit's all coming together
>>3859383What would you poach them for?
>>3856811Is there a more cursed existence than that of the Greenland shark? >live in complete darkness>doesn't matter because a lil copepod boi has been eating your eyeball since you were 3>no thoughts>no imagination >just wait for sniffer to detect whale carcass or sleeping fishies >repeat for 500 years
>>3863411If I were to wager a guess, they probably smell like fish
>>3856791i think thats not an eel tho but a type of ctenophore like >>3856769
>>3859236climbing 3 stairs at the same time
>>3866780im sorry, I really liked your post and I used it as inspiration
Are there any cleaner fishes in the deep? Or would they not survive/find any food that isn't marine snow?>>3866381Chang's erectile dysfunction remedy.
>>3869022kinda in the depths everything is a cleaneralso theres no algae
>>3866780Why does it take so long for their eyeballs to be eaten?
>>3869022Literally everything on the sea floor is a scavenger. If a whale carcass falls there, it's going to get picked so thoroughly clean that even the bones will barely exist a year after.
>>3863412Great footage, that squid looks pretty delicious.
>>3856904the problem with them is that they dont live long at all (about two years) which is why i am setting up a tank for a nautilus which lives for about 15-20 years.
>>3863405IIRC birds of paradise were thought to have no legs before they were photographed because the taxidermized birds didn't have legs for whatever reason.
>>3868839Kek could you elaborate?
Why are deep sea creatures so unique? I don't understand.
>>3870155Tough environment + relatively little change over the years, so lots of adaptations for the environmental conditions while still retaining some ancient features
>>3866780Also>smell like piss
>>3869022Sharks (sleepers, sixgills...), cutthroat eels, hagfishs
>>3869425How difficult are they to care for? I've always been fascinated by them.
>>3869989I know its stupid but it made someone laugh so
>>3870245Stunning picture. Comb Jellyfish look like alien spaceships
>>3866780Sounds like he's got Life figured out.What the fuck are we doing instead?
>>3856619why does everyone think it got shredded? it looks like it just inked and darted out like a squid
>>3862738I don't see any rocks holding whatever that is down.
>>3860141>WE GOTTA DESTROY IT BECAUSE>BECAUSE>BECAUSE SCIENCE SAYS SO, YOU CHUD.Can't just study the stationary plan thing, gotta fucking smash something pretty because we just have to know how it works right?
>>3859236Wait, so this is like a 4 legged hermit crab but with a polyp instead of a shell??
>>3858966Then it was going to go extinct anyway so it might as well die to something that will study it and might be able to revive it when gene sequencing gets better.
>>3856827Why does he look so sad?
>>3863670Imagine being this autistic
>>3866780sounds like a pretty sweet deal.
>>3859236I am glad that headcrabs are down there and not up here
>>3862738>Look, a weird thing in the ocean>I should take pictures, but only one, because film is expensive, you know?
>>3871994Yeah, they have a pair of specialized arms on their back to hold the anemone in place. The anemone produces a chitinous coating called carcinoecia which hardens and protects the crab like a shell would
>>3869022Reminds me of Zdzislaw Beksinski paintings.
>>3866381CONFUCIUS SAIDU GRIND JELLYFISHWANG GETS BIGGER
>>3861340That's pretty big for a cypris tho
>>3870155Probability is immense, including variations in temp, habitat, food sources, light etc.. Plus it's where life evolved, so there's a lot of time to allow probability; and unlike on land there is a large probality to survive a cataclysmic event by simply floating away on accident, preventing evolutionary dead ends of entire genuses
>>3856771Lol now we know how gondola evolved
>>3863670surprised nothing ate it
>>3860199Seems like it'd be relatively good death. I don't want to die of some debilitating disease or extreme old age that makes my only pleasure among inordinate amounts of constant discomfort in life to be the few times I'm still able to shock the new cute nurse that has to wipe my ass. >among all the freakshow nightmare horrors, this little guys swims up and sticks to your nose for a split second before darting off and you wake upIs it enough to help you sleep again?
I like to imagine that most of these creatures make a sort of "HURR DURR" noise as they flop around down there. Just some real goofy shit you know?
>>3871968I remember at summer camp once people found a ton of things that looked like jellyfish at the surface of the water and started throwing them at a cabin door because they exploded upon impact in a very satisfying way. Always wondered what they were until I saw this pic
>>3861433Those are actual lights on the creature. bioluminescence (sic). The BBC Series Blue Planet has some of these type of creatures filmed at very deep levels.
>>3866780These guys are ambush predators. They swim so slowly that other animals barely notice, then just fuck them up with lightning speed before they have time to react. Scientists once cut open a 19 foot specimen. It had an entire moose in its stomach.
Ichthyologists are promoting the "Megalodon is alive" bullshit to gaslight us and to ridicule by association everyone who points out the truth than ancient Sleeper Sharks can surpass 40 feet in length. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwndNqjMlIk
>>3877806I don't understand people who put in so much time and energy trying to convince people that stuff like the megalodon or big foot exists. Either they do or they don't, but until there is proper evidence then no one cares. What do you gain from believing in these things besides some sort of smug satisfaction if you end up being proved right?
>>3877855shits and giggles, most likely
>>3872505https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeztegaqYeIThey took at least three photographs including the one in color.
