This is a video captured by an unmanned rover operated by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) featuring a previously unseen species of crown (Atolla) jellyfish. Crown jellyfish my ass — somebody call Samus! This particular metroid lives at depths between 3,323 to 10,463 feet (or about 2 to
Because apparently under the sea anything goes, this is a video of diver Patrick Seligman allowing a Pacific cleaner shrimp (Lysmata amboinesis) to clean his teeth off the coast of Maui.

Just look
This is a video of a group of curious manatees watching a man wearing festive holiday pajama bottoms in his See Through Canoe while he relaxes on the water near Saint Petersburg, Florida. You know, it’s pretty crazy to think sailors actually used to mistake manatees for mermaids, isn’t it?
