Postcard from the DEEPEND: Something Scary for Halloween Pt 2

Did you identify the scariest thing in the sea? Did you guess jelly, ctenophore, or maybe a salp?

ID DEEPEND WhaleTimes sm

You’d be wrong. One of the scariest things in the sea is trash that escapes from our homes, schools, and lives. If it’s hard for us to identify, you can see why animals like sea turtles, seabirds and others accidently eat trash.

Elusive Giant Isopod

Dear Virtual Science Team,

Photo 3 Giant Isopod Creep into the Deep 640 x 433Though we hoped to see many giant isopods so we could learn more about their vision. So far they have eluded us. Maybe on the next ROV dive or maybe the Medusa secretly videoed them dancing and singing after the ROV left!  Wouldn’t that cool?
