  • Terrifying Sea Critter Hauled from Ocean's Depths

    View Slideshow

    A submarine exploring the ocean's depths recently returned with an unexpected visitor: a crablike critter that has left many readers startled and horrified.
    In a posting to social bookmarking site Reddit, a deep-sea technician detailed the finding, asking the site's readers to help identify what exactly the bizarre looking creature was.
    The post reads, "I work for a Sub-sea Survey Company, recently this beast came up attached to one of our ROVs. It measures a wee bit over 2.5 feet head to tail, and we expect it latched onto the ROV at roughly 8,500 feet depth. Unfortunately, the e-mail that these pictures were attached to came from a contractor, and the ship he was operating from (and therefore location) is unknown, so I can't tell you what part of the Earth this beast was living."

    Looks quite tasty - kind of like a lobster!

    Put him on the barbie. He'll eat just fine.

    Thanks.

      According to the accompany article, it's a critter that lives at great depths and feeds off the remains of squid and whales.

      Looks like a giant marine cockroach.

        No need to go to Mars. Plenty of "new frontiers" here.

                I'm with you on this one MM, my first impression on this was that it was looked way too much like a giant cockroach.

                  Good article, MountainMan.
                  It's too big, and gross.
                  Feeds off dead whales and things?
                  I always wondered about that.
                  The ocean has a bottom, and dead things sink to the bottom.
                  Things must be down there to eat things.
                  Don't catfish eat dead things in rivers etc.?
