THE DEEP ONES ARE REAL
Video shot by underwater drillers of a jellyfish near their well at 5000+ feet.
Some people who viewed the video were puzzled by the floating creature, with suggestions that it may be a deep sea monster or a more mundane plastic bag.
Speculation was also rife that it may have been whale placenta or even the mythical creature Cthulhu.
Experts have however confirmed that it is in fact a Deepstaria enigmatica, a jellyfish from the Ulmaridae family first discovered in 1967 by F.S. Russel. The invertebrae is usually found in the South Atlantic ocean.
