    This is a minute long video of a great white shark in South Africa trying to bite through a diving cage so it can eat the delicious (albeit screaming) morsels inside. Now we all know the smell of blood attracts sharks, but I'm pretty sure this video serves as proof positive th... / Continue →

    This is a newly described species of flapjack octopus that scientists find so precious that they're trying to name it 'Opisthoteuthis Adorabilis' and not Clyde like the orange Pac-Man ghost. Did I tell you I had a dream the other night that my girlfriend had an octopus tentacl... / Continue →

    This is a video captured by Mauricio Hoyos near Guadalupe Island starring Deep Blue, a 20+ foot female great white shark that's estimated to be over 50 years old. In this video, she's heavily pregnant, making her even larger. Admittedly, that guy that keeps swimming out of th... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a clever octopus carrying a coconut that it can hide in should it ever feel threatened (previously: this much longer video from 2009 that shows an octopus fully enclosing itself in a coconut). Pretty clever, octopuses. But do you know what I would wan... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful video documenting some of the previously unseen deep sea creatures discovered off the coast of Puerto Rico. There are some straight up aliens in the mix. Things I guarantee Mother Nature doesn't even remember making. 'Wait -- I invented that?' I imagine h... / Continue →

    This is a video of ocean life photographer Timothy Ewing taking pictures of a red octopus while the octopus checks him out. Whenever Timothy starts to disappear behind the rock, the octopus's curiosity gets the best of it and it raises itself to see where he went. Octopuses r... / Continue →

    There is a fish in this picture. Also, three ninjas. This is a video of some species of flatfish that blends in with the ocean floor so well that it's hard to spot at all. Even when it's moving it blends in. Me? I stick out like a sore thumb and have never won a game of hi... / Continue →

    This is a video taken off the coast of Australia of a spider crab colony migrating in a giant pyramid (technically just a big lump) formation to better defend themselves against predators. If I was one of those crabs I would want to be the one in the very bottom middle. And I ... / Continue →

    This is a video of an octopus chasing a crab. Despite a valiant effort to escape, the crab loses. Now I want crabs. I remember going crabbing in Maryland by tying a piece of frozen chicken to a string and slowly pulling the crabs out of the water. One time a crab pinched me... / Continue →

    These are the ceramic octopus (plus squid and jellyfish) planters made and sold by Cindy Searles for use with hanging air plants. They cost around $22 - $30 apiece and will make the perfect addition to my beach themed guest bathroom. I've already got the beach sunset wallpape... / Continue →

    This is a video/Sony commercial of Rambo the octopus taking pictures of visitors to the Sea Land Aquarium in Auckland, New Zealand. Apparently Rambo learned how to push the shutter button after just three attempts. For reference, my little sister still doesn't know how to tak... / Continue →

    This is a video taken from an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico of hundreds of sharks migrating north into Louisiana waters. It's believed the sharks are either blacktip or spinner sharks, neither of which pose a significant risk to humans. There have only been about 55 documente... / Continue →

    This is a video of a cuttlefish using an awesome laser lightshow (technically not lasers or lights, but colorful cells expanding and contracting) to stun a crab so it can eat it. I love crabs. Thankfully, I don't have to stun them to eat them, just wait till it's my birthday ... / Continue →

    This is the deep sea goblin shark (previously seen in video HERE) caught by father/son fishing team Mike and Lochlainn Kelly off the coast of New South Wales in Australia. It's called a goblin shark because it looks like a goblin. If it lived under a bridge and carried a wood... / Continue →

    This is a photo of an incredibly rare-to-see (on account of living in the deep sea) 15-foot megamouth shark that washed ashore in the Philippines this week. Apparently there have only been 60 confirmed megamouth shark captures and sightings to date. That's pretty rare. It ki... / Continue →

    This is the video from an R/C plane flying over Osprey Bay in Western Australia when the plane's operator loses sight of it in the sun's glare and crashes it into the ocean. Mayday, mayday! The R/C plane then continues to film the sea life around a reef, including a bunch of... / Continue →

    These are the photographs taken by Canadian diver and photographer Keri Wilk after a particularly crappy encounter with a sperm whale. Apparently the 'shit as much as you can and wave it in the face of whoever you don't want around' defense technique is equally effective under... / Continue →

    And he used himself as bait! Just kidding, that only works with sharks and the Kraken. This is the 12-pound, estimated 60-70 year old lobster caught by biologist Forrest Galante off the coast of Anacapa Island, California. Damn, could you imagine-- "Eating the tail of that ... / Continue →

    This is a closeup photo taken by photographer Amanda Brewer of a great white shark trying to attack a piece of bait in Mossel Bay, South Africa. Apparently the photo has caught some flak due to the fact it looks like somebody is pulling the bait towards the cage to make the sh... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a bunch of baby sea turtles being released to scamper down into the ocean on Lankayan Island in Malaysian Borneo. Fun fact: did you know the sex of baby sea turtles depends on the temperature of the sand they're incubated in? Higher temperatures decre... / Continue →
