    Aquarists P. Zelda Montoya and Barrett L. Christie at the Dallas Zoo and Children's Aquarium successfully blended creamy peanut butter with salt water and fed it to moon jellyfish. Why? I'm not sure, presumably just so they could say they raised peanut butter jellyfish. WORT... / Continue →

    This is the Little Mermaid pipe blown by Baton Rouge glass artist nicko0. It looks like Flounder serves as the bowl with a glass-on-glass connection in the back of Ariel's head. You ever smoked with a mermaid before? I have. We got all kinds of high. Then she almost died a... / Continue →

    To continue with the last two posts' enchantment under the sea theme, this is a short video of a snorkeler getting surprised by an octopus that blows its cover and reveals itself after the diver gets too close. Man, he was hiding GOOD. Like, I would never play hide-and-seek w... / Continue →

    This is a series of octopus tentacle chandeliers crafted by artist Adam Wallacavage. You may recall these previous versions from 2013. I want one. But I want it to look as lifelike as possible. And I want the tentacles to wiggle. Actually, if we could just flood my dining ... / 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 →

    Scientists recently discovered a new species of fish after lowering a camera and research equipment to a depth of 8,143-meters (26,716-feet, ~5.05-miles) in the Marianas Trench. This is video of that fish. It looks kind of like the ghost of a bird. And perhaps it IS the ghos... / Continue →

    This is a video about Bargibant's Pygmy Seahorses (Hippocampus bargibanti), which grow less than an inch from snout to tail, and use a remarkable ability to change color and grow calcified tubercles to match the coral they live on. In this experiment, scientists introduce the ... / Continue →

    This is one of six (and one of only three remaining) modified Lotus Esprit submarine cars used in the filming of the 1977 James Bond Film 'The Spy Who Loved Me'. It's being sold on eBay for $1,000,000. Unfortunately, it's not Wet Nellie, the one they used that was an ACTUAL f... / Continue →

    This is a short Vine video released by Greenpeace of a couple squids attacking one of their submarines in the Bering Sea between Russia and Alaska. I'm not even sure what the hell I'm watching, but I guarantee you that evil sea-witch Ursula is behind it. Now raise your hand i... / Continue →

    This is a video from an unmanned underwater rover being operated by a team aboard the research vessel Nautalis of an unusually large Dumbo octopus (named after their giant 'ears') roaming the ocean's depths in the Caribbean Sea. Researchers estimate the octopus to be almost fi... / Continue →

    Cool helmet, Jacques Cousteau. This is a video demonstrating what happens when you crack an egg underwater (and deep enough for the water pressure to have an effect). I actually posted a better version of the experiment back in 2012, but maybe you weren't reading then. Hell,... / Continue →

    This is a photo from David Littschwager of seawater magnified 25x (showing all the crab larvae and marine worms that are invisible to the naked eye). Just like the title says. So if you thought this post was going to be about superheroes, you are a terrible at interpreting ti... / Continue →

    This is a 10-second video of a great white shark breaching the surface and taking to the air to catch a seal decoy. Highlights of the video include the shark jumping, the woman squealing, and dude's 'BOOYAKASHA' at the end. Also, I'm not sure we should be feeding sharks fake ... / Continue →

    This is the Lover's Deep, a luxury submarine that rich people can rent to have sex in under the sea. It costs $145,000/night per person though and there's a two-night minimum, so unless you're planning on bringing a love doll for the least romantic getaway of all time, the min... / Continue →

    This is an unclassified species of giant jellyfish that recently washed up on an Australian beach. Majestic, isn't it? "It looks like a giant puddle of vomit." IT SURE F***ING DOES. Dr Lisa-ann Gershwin, of Australia's CSIRO government agency, said that scientists had known... / Continue →

    Snorkeling: it's like one step away from drowning. But now there's the Easybreath Snorkeling Mask, a snorkel that lets you breathe through your nose (just like on dry land!) for people who aren't coordinated enough to only breathe through their mouth. Fun fact: one time I was... / Continue →

    Note: Remaining photos are probably NSFW on account of cartoon nipples. This is a small series titled 'Dirtyland' by artist Dillon Boy. It features Disney princesses in the style of naked street art pinups. Honestly, they're all relatively tasteful nudes though. And tastefu... / 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 →

    Wow, two squid posts in one day -- Poseidon must be losing his shit at his computer right now. This is a video of the giant squid caught by Japanese fisherman Shigenori Goto. Fun fact: giant squid are rarely seen because they live so deep in the ocean and guard Atlantis. G... / Continue →
