For centuries, sailors told tales of giant squid attacking and crushing ships.

Sure, for a long time, these were simply stories without much basis in reality. In recent decades, though, researchers have discovered the actual existence of giant squid, and let me tell you, they’re pretty terrifying.

That being said, what a recent deep-sea expedition discovered will take your breath away…

It began as a normal expedition using a remote operated vehicle (ROV) to explore the depths. That was until they saw what looked like a trail of stars…

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

The ROV got closer and what they discovered was amazing: a giant deep-sea squid giving birth.

Needless to say, this was the last thing that researchers expected to come across…

It’s a little on the long side, but the payoff at the end of the video is worth it.

Just when you thought Mother Nature couldn’t get any more amazing, she manages to surprise you. Though, I will say this is also pretty creepy.

During an expedition in the Gulf of Mexico, researchers on the Ocean Exploration Trust’s EV Nautilus came across a weird-looking purple thing. At first, they thought it was garbage, but upon further inspection, they were able to determine that it was a siphonophore. Yes, a siphonophore–everyone’s soon-to-be favorite living colony. Take a look!

1. Garbage? That’s no way to talk about a siphonophore.

2. What if they heard you? They’d probably all be so upset.

3. Yes, they. Siphonophores are made up of multiple creatures.

4. Some of them feed while others swim and none of them have to listen to you call them garbage!

Seriously, garbage?  You don’t hear the siphonophore making fun of the organisms the researchers live with. Share this post using the button below.
