I had a look around. It's called a deepstaria enigmatica jellyfish, and Wikipedia (I know) says it was discovered in 1967.

I was thinking it sort of looked like some kind of jellyfish.

The skin looked too rich in texture to be faked. When I saw the bottom area of it I had to say it looked truly organic and authentic. Besides it is a real jellyfish.

It looks very much like a jellyfish, but it acts like a cephalod pod. Don't jellyfish just go with the flow of the water and aren't able to move on their own?

Less than 1% of the ocean floor has been studied by man. We don't know how many amazing and terrifying creatures exist on or in our world.

People theorize that aliens actually seek refuge in our seas. That brings up an interesting question - one that deserves a thread of it's own: how do we know if any beings currently inhabiting our planet might've come from the stars? I personally think it's foolish to assume that the billions and billions of different species, discovered or not, on our earth started out here.

Well, chances are that ALL life came from another planet. It just so happens that when it crashed on ours that the conditions were right for it to thrive.

It's called deep-sea gigantism. Its quite likely that there are massive creatures down there. We know of massive extinct animals that lived down there.

Or it's a discarded whale condom.

I watched the video expecting something cool. Instead all I seen was a big jellyfish. Gah.

I believe in the theory of not pretending like I know everything about a past that I was never a part of.

Exactly what purpose does freaky s*** like serve? Well, other than the will of Satan?
