Cold Sea Balloon... OF DEATH!


It's a drawstring bag of death! It's a bin liner of doom! No, it's... er... Space Invaders 3DWe first saw this flimsy sack of alienage back in 2012, when people who had no idea what they were looking at suggested it might be a placenta of whale.

Cloak of the Vampire Squid


All other vampires are jealous of the Vampire Squid's beautiful, silky cloak. Look how it shines! Count Dracula may as well be wearing cardboard compared to this!

Seventh Seal of the Hallowe'en Horrors


It's Halloween! That time of year when we eat humble pie with death, eat a whole bottle of bitter pills with darkness and eat lead with evil.

Don't Smell the Roses


Remember how hard-working, deep sea sponges look like satellite dishes and mouths-on-sticks? It's important to note that that's just part of the story.

Sandgroper


Think grasshopper. Grass. Hopper. Surely, anything called a Sandgroper is the complete opposite of anything that hops about in the grass?

Bubble Gum Oasis

March of the Firesocks


Firesocks! Sea Pickles! More to the point, Pyrosomes! And a LOT of them. Video: EVNautilus From fang-tastic teeth to a frankly inappropriate ability to swim, there are many ways of doing the deep sea right.
