OMG! Glowing Sea Creatures!

Filed under: Sea CreaturesAmazing

Sea creatures are usually pretty wacky.

These creatures look more like aliens, or light up toys than actual living organisms!

Check out the video above to see some Sea Goosberies. Their bodies are basically transparent and rows of tiny cilia catch the light, producing rainbow-like colors.

This is so wild!

RIP Paul The Octopus

Filed under: Sad Sad

paul the octopus

Paul the Octopus has passed on…

Paul is known for his correct predictions of all of the outcome of all seven of Germany's games in the World Cup as well as Spain's victory in the final. OMG!

Paul was found dead in his tank at the Sea Life Aquarium in Berlin, he was 2 1/2. He had died from natural causes.

It is a common for an octopus of his type to die at this age.

Awww, we will miss you Pauly!!

Massive Amounts Of Sea Life Left Dead In Gulf Waterways

fishkill9-10-101jb.jpg

Absolutely devastating.

Check out (above) this photo of a Louisiana waterway that has become overwhelmed with various species of dead sea life, which even allegedly includes a dead whale.

Although 'dead zones' - which are areas of water that don't have enough oxygen to support life - are apparently common during stretches in the summer in this area, it's normally never on this scale nor does it affect more than one species at a time.

Many have speculated that this is an indirect result of the BP oil spill in the Gulf - oil-eating microbes have been present in the waters since the incident, and those allegedly require quite a bit of oxygen when consuming the oil particles.

Billy Nungesser, who took the photos, says:

"We can't continue to see these fish kills. We need some additional tests to find out why these fish are dying in large numbers. If it is low oxygen, we need to identify the cause."

Agreed completley.

This is horrific news, and we sincerely hope that scientists take the time to figure out just exactly what's going on with these deaths.

Who knows what other unexpected long-term effects this oil spill will have on the ecosystem? Awful.
