Deep Sea Creatures.

Most of you have probably seen these, but I'll throw the link in anyway.
I thought it was really interesting... Especially the last picture.

They are very cool. I seen these pics long before the tsunami (about a year), then they resurfaced afterwards. Makes me doubt the validity of them. But, if they are for real, very cool.

yea i saw them sum years ago as well,
I find it amazing what lies beyond mans research...
I mean, imagine how many species are still undiscovered, and probably always will be that way. I think by far these are one of many of the great wonders of this wide world we live in..

We know more about Mars than we do the deepest depths of the ocean

Makes you wonder what is really down there

They are real and came from some deep sea research done by a vessel near Australia about 4-5 years back.

Snopes.com has an article on the pictures. The article shows more creatures than the extremefunnyhumor site (and without the annoying watermark--extremefunnyhumor.com taking credit for pictures to which it likely holds no claim).
