    This is the 18-inch mantis shrimp (which are neither shrimp nor lobsters but similar to both) a fisherman pulled out of the water while fishing off a dock on the Indian River Lagoon in Florida. Apparently this is an exceptionally sized species of mantis shrimp too. I'd say, t... / Continue →

    This is a pretty poor quality video (I dunno, maybe next time get somebody else to hold the camera if you've got the fishing rod) of a Goliath grouper (which can grow to 10-feet and 790-pounds) eating a 4-foot black-tip shark in a single bite. For reference, it probably would ... / Continue →

    This is the wooden sculpture carefully carved and assembled by Japanese artist Ohtake Ryousuke to move like an actual lobster. If that showed up my plate at Red Lobster I would definitely try to butter it and poke its eye-stalk with my fork until my mom threatens one more time... / Continue →

    King crabs: they're delicious. And this lavender one was recently spotted in a shipment to Japan from Russia. Why is it lavender? Is it even lavender? Personally, I think it's more of a cornflower blue, but that's just me and I'm willing to argue about anything. How many l... / Continue →

    This is a composite photo of the crazy elbowed squid (actually a bigfin squid) captured in that video taken by the Shell Oil Company near one of it's drilling platforms. You remember that video? Of course you don't, I posted that almost five years ago. A lot has happened sin... / Continue →

    This is the unidentified mystery fish caught by fisherman Sapar Mansor off the coast of Tudan, Malaysia. I'm not sure I would eat it, but I would. I'll eat almost anything, including playground sand. The creature has two tusk-like spikes near its mouth and measures over one ... / Continue →

    These are a series of 3-D resin paintings by DeviantARTist Kenglye. He creates the 3-D effect by pouring a thin layer of resin, painting that layer, pouring another thin layer, painting that one, and repeating until he's built up a real looking fish or octopus or turtle. Most... / Continue →

    Dammit dog, what part of 'Cheese!' don't you understand? This is the 5.5-meter (~18-foot) giant oarfish a snorkeler spotted just offshore Catalina Island in California. It was dead. Giant Oarfish normally frequent depths as deep as a kilometer (~2/3 of a mile) and are only s... / Continue →

    These are the crabs arranged to look like a centipede by some unknown dining establishment in the world. I'm guessing somewhere in Japan. Would you eat it? Of course you would, they're just crabs. I would, but I'd have to close my eyes when it came and have a friend put all... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like a cross between a shark, killer whale, cowboy boot and a sea turtle with an unfortunate chin penis, is an artist's impression of Entelognathus, an ancient fish paleontologists believe may be the missing link between the extinct bony armored Placoderms and... / Continue →

    This is a series of shots from underwater photographer Todd Bretl of glowing Bobtail Squids (Sepiola atlantica) captured in their natural habitat. What is their natural habitat? Apparently pure blackness. Per Wikipedia: Bobtail squid have a symbiotic relationship with biolu... / Continue →

    Meet Lola, a 4-pound, 10-year old lobster caught off the coast of Massachusetts with a regular claw on one side, and five freaky little nonfunctional claws on the other. MUTANT! *calling Professor X* Seriously bro, you have to let us kill and eat this one. "This claw deform... / Continue →

    This is a cross section of a colony of Pyura chilensis, a brainless filter feeding organism found in shallow waters off the coasts of Chile and Peru. They resemble squiggly rocks made out of cooked ground beef with nasty guts inside. Do people eat them raw? DAMN YEAH PEOPLE ... / Continue →

    Yay, now let's fill the oceans with concrete and put a stop to this madness. I wrote about flying squid way back in 2010, but now they're back in the news after marine biologists have confirmed that the squids are actually flying (up to 30m/98-feet!) when they leap out of the ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the moment before a big shark eats the smaller shark Redditor Mancubus1 was in the process of reeling in. I know that feeling, and it sucks. Because one time I had a mermaid on the line but then this merman came along and threw a trident at me and I was all,... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a giant jack fish tornado captured by marine biologist Octavio Aburto at Cabo Pulmo National Park in Mexico. Why would fish ever want to be in a tornado? SPOILER: to get to Oz. "And why would fish want to end up in Oz?" Beats ending up in a Long Joh... / Continue →

    This is Papa Mau, a wave-powered robotic boat that managed to autonomously navigate its way 9,000 miles from San Francisco to Australia over the course of the last year instead of being eaten by a shark like I begged King Neptune to make happen. IT'S SUSHI NIGHT TONIGHT, NEPTU... / Continue →

    This is sushi scented cologne from zany perfumer Demeter. It's supposed to smell like sushi, but the scent surprisingly lacks any spicy tuna. Something smells fishy about all this! KILLLLLLLL MEEEEEEE. The fragrance consists of hints of just cooked sticky rice and straight ... / Continue →

    Because scientists apparently don't care who our new overlords are as long they aren't us, a group of bioengineers from Harvard and the California Institute of Technology have built swimming jellyfish out of silicon rubber and the cells from rat hearts. Soon, they'll be assemb... / Continue →
