At the bottom of the ocean, a bizarre shape-shifting alien creature has been recorded
This video was taken by a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) at a depth of 3,753 feet in the Indian Ocean near a drilling wellhead.
At the end of the film, alien beings become absorbed in the performance of the ROV’s thrusters. The video was filmed on the east coast of Africa and has not been altered.
This mysterious creature is unquestionably the closest living creature on the planet to being an enemy. According to marine biologist Bill Austin, it’s definitely a comb jelly (ctenophore). George Matsumoto, a ctenophore (comb jelly) expert at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Research Institute, identified it as a lobed Lampocteis ctenophore.
Comb jellies are jellyfish-like organisms with eyelashes that make them float in groups or lines. Some comb jellies have strips of eyelashes running the length of their outer bodies. In general, comb jellies are hunters. Only comb jellies use specially modified coloblastic cells to squirt glue onto their prey while hunting.
