    Very cool pics. Some nice ones with better explanations can be found here.

    A zip of all the pics in the post liked to above can be gotten here (better to right click on link and download, as it's a zip file).

    FAKE! ????

    While I do not give my source 100% credit - I believe the web site that monitors fake posting stated this tsunami kicked up life was a fake deal.

    But as a marine fish love I was intrigued - fake or not they are cool!

    Of couse my source also claimed that these were in fact released from the space ship that crashed's on board aquarium - the impact caused the Tsunami... god bless the radio!
    :p

    Somehow, that one reminds me a lot HR Giger's creatures. O~O

    Black teeth... how creepy is that.

    I've seen a few of those before, but it never ceases to amaze me what there is out there. Sometimes I think we need to worry a little less about finding ET and spend more time looking at our own planet....

    Too true...it's unbelievable to think that we know more about what's on Mars than we do about what's in our oceans.

    There is a BBC DVD series call "Blue Planet, the deep sea" and showed these creatures in action! So most are REAL!!!!

    Interesting when the researchers dive all the way down pass these creatures, they found a "lake" that was much heavier than salt water. :eek:
    Pretty neat!

    Weird looking sea animals. Thought that one of them has eyes that almost look human. There is still a lot of the ocean frontier to explore. Those are just animals that have learned to adapt in unfriendly environments.

    i find the website itself more interesting-- a place to post images as an inspiration for artists?

    I'm guessing we've only discovered 1% of all total sea life species and maybe 20% of all land-based life forms.

    Too bad almost none of them can live up here... They need pressure to keep there bodies intact.

    But Mr. Anderson said it best. There are so many fascinating things- It is unbelievable.

    Very true Mr. A, and to think all that we haven't discovered on this planet, and think about the universe as a whole, and what we have yet to discover....the former is mind-boggleing in itself

    anyone remember seaquest? i thought that show was cool when i was growing up, i wish there were more initiatives to explore underseas....

    As a marine biologist, I can tell you for certain that they are all very real. The email sent around saying they washed up in the tsunami was a hoax though. Those fish live hundreds or even thousands of feet below the surface. For them to was up in the tsunami, it would have had to have been 1000's of feet high.

    There are so many incredible creatures to be found in the ocean. Even in shallow water there are creatures that look like they could be from another planet.
