This is a video from some adventure-seekers in Tonga diving with a couple humpback whales, who just narrowly miss a whale’s tail flip. I don’t know, maybe don’t get so close to them. They don’t come to where you live and fill your house with plastic, do they? While certainly
This is some rare footage of a small (bell diameter ~1.1-inches) psychedelic jelly (Crossota millsae) spotted by one of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute’s robotic deep sea rovers in the midnight zone, the absolutely pitch black area of the sea from a depth of around 3,500-feet downward.

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?

This is a video from some whale watchers in kayaks hoping to catch a glimpse of Moby Dick when a whale breaches right in front of them, yelling the whole time in very loud whale language, “GET OUT OF THE WAY YOU FOOLS!” Per the person who reposted the video
This is a video of a mantis shrimp, presumably very angry it was yanked up from Bikini Bottom, punching the fisherman who caught it, slicing through his new bootie and foot and causing him to bleed. The dude sounds pretty upset about the booties, which he repeatedly mentions are new
These are several shots of what is believed to be a female Pacific Footballfish (I think I caught one of those in Animal Crossing!) that recently washed ashore in Crystal Cove, California. The fish normally lives at depths down to 3,000 feet, so it’s rare to ever see one at
