Pictures of Beautiful and Monstrous Sea Creatures

May 22, 2007 at 1:42 pm (amazing things, frightening things, neat things)

Via the New York Times, I’ve stumbled upon a book that looks almost too great to be true- The Deep: The Extraordinary Creatures of the Abyss. It’s a collection of photographs that are newer and better than any before because of newer and better underwater picture-taking technologies. Or something. Anyway, take a look:


From “The Deep: The Extraordinary Creatures of the Abyss” by Claire Nouvian/Steven Haddock
An as yet unidentified species.

From “The Deep: The Extraordinary Creatures of the Abyss” by Claire Nouvian/Edith Widder
A stimias boas scaly Dragonfish.

From “The Deep: The Extraordinary Creatures of the Abyss” by Claire Nouvian/Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute
A Ping-Pong tree sponge.

Ugh.

    Haha! Ugh, I know. And this book is MUCH cheaper than the other you wanted, so I’ll definitely go in on it with you. Just look at that red thing.

    There are many organisms that are yet to be found in the abyss of the ocean. Some appear to be out of this world with alien-like structures such as the red animal shown on top of this page. Just because we are not used to seeing these creatures doesn’t mean they’re monsters out of our nightmares. =)
