    This is how mother nature says "stay away!" "Or I will sever an important limb with my freakishly huge beak." ~~~~~ Since the 1970s, scientists have revised their ideas about the deep ocean floor. ~~~ Right. Don't go there.

    The worm, as scary as it looks, is something most people will never actually get to see (or have to worry about, for that matter). Hydrothermal worms are deep sea creatures, almost as small as bacterium, and are largely found near hydrothermal vents in the ocean.

Alien? They may be monsters from the deep, but their ability to survive in the deep ocean makes scale worms fascinating to researchers like Daniel Desbruyeres, a senior researcher at Ifremer, France. "The deep sea realm is one of the most diverse habitats on Earth," he says, "yet our perception of it is still in its infancy," he said.

the deep ocean. Octopus legs look like roots of a tree...Kinda interesting that the function of the tentacles on those legs are similar to those of a root of tree.

Rosy Acorn Worm is a new species of acorn worm discovered some 8,850 feet (2,700 meters) deep near the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Deepwater worms have extremely long 'lips', helping them snag prey in a place where food is scarce. via nationalgeographic #Acorn_Worm #nationalgeographic

A deep sea Angler fish. I'm wondering if the two "appendages" on the bottom might be males?

Creatures of the deep: terrifying macro pictures of polychaetes or bristle worms. Scale worms crawl along the seafloor near a vent, using their vicious-looking teeth to munch on the bacteria and simple organisms that thrive in the hot water and chemical soup.

Sincronía perfecta Ni los pájaros son colibríes, ni el grifo es una flor. Sin embargo los resultados no tienen nada que envidiar a las fotografías tomadas en lugares remotos con fauna exótica. La naturaleza más común a nuestro alrededor, un par de gorriones, observada de la forma adecuada nos proporciona imágenes tan mágicas y sorprendentes como ésta.
