Is Glowing "Alien" Jellyfish Just A Hoax??

Filed under: TV NewsScience!Scary!Sea Creatures

Glowing

Something equal parts beautiful and terrifying happened in Bristol Harbour, in the UK.

A crowd was gathering at the edge of the water of the harbor, trying to get a look at the glowing creature just underneath the water.

Was it a glowing jellyfish? Or some alien/weird deep sea creature?

A biologist was called in to investigate, and said:

"It is very intriguing – I do not really know what to make of it. There is a possibility that it is a special type of jellyfish or a marine salp. It is very unusual and I have not really seen anything like it before though. What makes it even more unusual is the fact that it showed up in the middle of a really busy area."

Ha! That's one smart scientist! Two possible explanations and one logical one.

If it's weird and unexplained and in the middle of a busy area… odds are it's a hoax.

And… apparently it was! It was all a stunt set up by UKTV's entertainment channel, Watch.

The whole thing was set up to launch a new show called The Happenings all about amazing illusions set up by two master magicians.

Check out the video to see the glowing light that fooled so many AFTER THE JUMP!!

Ha! That's ridiculous!! We can't believe that just happened!

This guy is lucky he didn't lose a finger!

MASSIVE 18-Foot Oarfish Found Off Cali Coast!! See The Crazy Pic HERE!

Filed under: Science!Sea CreaturesFishAmazing

Massive 18-foot-long Oarfish found off the California coast!

A marine science instructor was snorkeling off the coast of sunny SoCal when they spotted something pretty amazing:

An 18-foot-long Oarfish!!

Jasmine Santana of the Catalina Island Marine Institute (CIMI) saw the huge, shiny, silver body laying on the seafloor.

It's one of the largest oarfish they've seen at CIMI.

Oarfish tend to dive over 3,000-feet-deep so seeing them is pretty rare.

Luckily, when this 18-footer died of natural causes he floated up to where the scientists found him.

The giant oarfish can actually grow to an incredible 50-feet-long!!

They're apparently the reason for old, giant sea serpent myths.

Now, the fish is being buried in the sand to decompose so its skeleton can be reconstituted and put on display.

Congrats on the find, Jasmine!!

Rescued Sea Lions Returned To The Ocean!!

Filed under: Sea CreaturesRescueSea Lion

In Peru, several sea lions were found washed ashore, injured.

Thankfully they were rescued by the Organization for Research and Conservation of Aquatic Animals (ORCA).

The ahmayzing group is used to rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing marine creatures, so they had no problem scooping up the six sea lions into their loving arms and bringing them back to health.

No one knows who hurt the sea lions, but it's guessed it might have been fishermen.

They tend to hate the sea lions because they eat lots of fish.

Regardless of what happened, they were healed up and made sea worthy again!

So the lil cuties were eventually released back into the ocean!

Check out the video (above) to see the sea lions making a run for freedom!!
