Deepstaria



Here's a video of Deepstaria by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. Deepstaria has been making the rounds online and people have been guessing at what it exactly is (whale placenta was apparently a favourite). It was fairly quickly identified as a jellyfish and the MBARI video has gorgeous shots of it and of other deep sea jellyfish.
