Second Known Sighting Of Rare ‘Facehugger’ Jellyfish

Having previously spotted a red balloon squid, this is a video from the ROV Hercules chancing upon a rarely seen Bathykorus jellyfish, that resembles a facehugger from the Alien franchise. This is only the second time the jellyfish has been caught on film, the first being in 2015. That’s cool, but if we’re going with pop culture references, I would have definitely opted to call this a Half-Life headcrab jellyfish instead. Granted a lot of people might not get the reference because they haven’t played Half-Life, but, just like my neighbors taking offense to me still turning my Christmas lights on in June, that’s not my problem. Santa missed me this year and I’m giving him a chance to make things right.
