Underwater camera captures a mysterious object
Creature could be a jellyfish - but it appears to have organs.

It could be a discarded whale placenta - but it has strange markings

It could be a fishing net - but it seems to move under its own control.
A mysterious ocean 'blob' has been recorded by a deep-sea remote-controlled underwater camera....

It does resemble an ex-girlfriend's mom. :giggle:

Everytime I try to post a link the video shows up.

Very cool. I say not to a net. I'd guess a jellyfish of some type.

It does seem to have the veins on the head like a jellyfish. It might have just eaten something and that's what the weird thing is. I'm still not ruling out mother in law. :giggle:

I don't know what it is yet...
Is it a Democrat or a Republican?

I'm pretty sure that's the ninja-like president of my subdivision's homeowner's association on his nightly rounds to scope out dusty siding, misplaced trash cans and -horror of horrors - 'unapproved backyard vegetable gardens. Yeah, that's Larry..........

I reserve my Right to Freedom of Speech by merely asking if this entity will be voting as an elephant or a donkey!

that seems purely logical to me! :crazy:

Could it be a new deep sea species? Remember when the '04 tsunami washed up all those weird things.

Now that is freakishly awesome. My little girl is fascinated by anything having to do with nature. I'm going to show her this tomorrow after school. I'll report back what she thinks it is. :floorlaugh:

It's the little heard of chupacabre of the sea. You run into it, tell it Charlie sent you.

What ever it is, it's pretty cool. Had me mesmerized watching it flow. Seems to be some sort of jelly fish.

I think it's a discarded sheet of plastic.

At first it looks like it MIGHT be plastic but after the 3:30 minute mark it definitelly appears to have animal parts of some sort (or placenta parts or something).

Giant, pulsing sea blob identified

But that deepwater enigma is no mystery: It’s actually a Deepstaria enigmatica, said oceanographer Steven Haddock.

“This bag-like jelly is not that rare, but is large, so rarely seen intact,” Haddock, a scientist for the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in Moss Landing, Calif.

While I do want to be aware of these deep sea creatures, who are so beautiful, by the way, I am fearful that also, the depths of the ocean and the glorious creatures who dwell there, will be exploited by humans. It was exciting for me to know that James Cameron was exploring the depths; however, there were other explorers mentioned in the articles who have built vehicles to plumb those previously unknown, unassailed environments. Get ready for a "Whale Wars" of the deep ocean. JMO, of course.

I seen this thing too a few days ago on daily planet . I see someone mentioned what some scientist's and marine biolegists thik that its a whale placenta OR that its just a really old drift net for fishing that was lost some time ago . For me i have no clue but i dont think its the placenta from some whale for too reasons one they usually eat it right away so sharks and other predators dont pick up the scent and if it was a whale placenta and left to float away you woulda seen tons of fish attacking it and eating it but thats jut what i think..It's wierd though thats for sure.

If you look upthread it was identified as a certain type of jellyfish.
