Exploring the Most Incredible World of Sea Aliens of the Deep

Come join my exploration mission to unveil the mystery of some sea aliens inhibit in the deep sea.

Deep sea accommodates the largest habitat on Earth, extending from several hundred feet below the ocean surface to just above the seafloor. The marine animals which inhibit at the depths have adapted themselves to almost total darkness, weightlessness and infrequent food source.

On this exploration mission, we’ll go with a submarine to reach the depths in order to see closely these bizarre deep-sea creatures. If the depth is not too deep, you’ll have to dive together with me to unveil the mystery of these marine creatures. When our submarine reaches the deepest of the sea, there’ll be no light penetrate through it. We’ll be in the pitch dark, and the temperature there is near freezing. The pressure outside our submarine will be extremely intense to have a golf ball crushed. So, make sure you’re strong and healthy enough to fit the extreme condition at the depths. When our submarine starts moving downward the sea, you’ll occasionally see some flashes of light by peering out the window of the submarine. The light that you may have seen is caused by the bioluminescent (more than ¾ of the marine animals in the deep sea can produce their own light via bioluminescence) creatures that dwell at the depths.

You’ve seen some marine creatures in my previous article “Odd-looking Marine Animals (You never knew existed)”. Now, I’d like to bring you along to explore some of the sea aliens that inhibit the oceanic depths. I hope you enjoy exploring deep into the sea! Get yourself ready, our exploration will start very shortly.

This snake-like deep sea creature is called Fimbriated Moray Eel, or scientifically it is named as Gymnothorax Fimbriatus. It is found lying under a coral reef ledge on a shore off the coast of Anilao in Philippines.

    the reason the nothosaurus looks like a prehistoric crocodile is because IT IS prehistoric the name northosaurus even means extinct marine reptile with longer more slender limbs than plesiosaurs and less completely modified for swimming and the nothosaurus came from the the triassic period (which we are not in)
