I always wonder, if these deep sea creatures still have functioning eyes at these depths they must be ridiculously sensitive right? So would the intensity of the lights on the rovers be as bright for them as us staring at the sun?

Interesting thing is that in so low temperatures many chemical reactions are slower or non existing. That would suggest that those creatures not only live longer but they are living slower. I bet that such a gigantic pressure also adds to this effect.

"Gravity" is somewhat of an abstract concept when you can maintain neutral buoyancy in your "atmosphere" (in this case: the ocean).

When I was a child, my parents took me with them on a family vacation to Tahiti. In the airport, my dad got me a book from a newsstand that was an illustrated dictionary of sea creatures. Surprisingly, despite being a book meant for kids, that dictionary contained a vast array of ocean animals that most people have never even heard of. Both the Greenland shark and the vampire squid were in that book., and I still remember them from reading it all those years ago.

Imagine if the Sea Creatures had their own city and language and we are basically aliens to them making them tell stories of mysterious objects that had blinding lights go down and observe them for hours

I was expecting some aggressive creatures. But this is still fascinating, plus the narration is soothing.

I had no idea there were vertebrates that could live up to 500 years. That is incredible! Definitely need to look into the Greenland shark now.

Fun fact: most (if not all) magnapinna squids have been juveniles, using the scale of objects that they’re often seen by, such as Oil Rigs, have been 20 - 25 feet long, meaning the Magnapinna Squid are certainly longer than we’ve seen

Thank you for releasing this for FREE. Maybe ten years ago, it was tough to get this kind of quality on products that are released freely to the public. Could you cover more of the genesis of the squid and maybe its prime age? The age where it was most abundant and diverse. I know it's probably not as easy to cover something like this because they are soft-bodied but are the beaks different enough from each species that we can tell species apart and maybe guess its behavior?

I loved this video, the message at the end was very well delivered! I wish more people realized just how amazing this planet we live on is.

First I hear about the lower calorie need of the giant squid, and I'm like, "Oh, well that's all right, it's just chilling and looking for the occasional provident snack." Then I hear about its crazy slow metabolism, and how it only needs about fifty calories per day, just hiding down there, waiting patiently... somehow, that just made it scarier in the end.

It’s so difficult for me to watch informative videos over 10 min bc of my adhd but these videos have me absolutely glued. Such professional quality and a beautiful flow of information

I've always found giant sea creatures interesting, I remember the first time I saw an angel shark I was filled with so much glee at how weird, cool or just straight up horrifying, I want to become a marine biologist so I can be close to and study something so alien yet familiar to me, it feels me with a deep sense of foreboding curiosity.

What I would be most interested to see is if they find any caves that deep, caves in the ocean tend to be primordial life hotspots, primarily because of the protect it provides, so if there were anything that deep, I am curious as to what we would find. We've also only explored what, 4% of our oceans? We still have a long way to go.

Thank you for making this video! I love that it shares cool facts about the ocean in a not-horrifying way and tells people that we need to save it! :D

The deep sea is such a magical place. It’s so cool that some of them could live up to 500 years. The Greenland shark is by far the most interesting personally. Great video!

Thank you for this FASCINATING video. I have always had a deep respect and healthy fear of the deep and the mysterious, elusive and storied creatures that may or may not exist within that immensity. This fascination just can't seem to find any really good info about these creatures, especially Architeuthis Rex, until I stumbled across your well put together and entertaining post. Thank you for the time it must have taken you to do this and I hope to see more.

This is the exact topic I wanted this channel to cover ever since I discovered it a year and a half ago, thank you for covering some of my favorite creatures that swim this planet with us. Keep up the wonderful work!

The thing with the Greenland Shark is that they swim into freshwater to shake off the crustaceans - they've been found in the rivers of Quebec, having swam up the seaway to get there, and have been found in the lochs of Scotland. The freshwater lets them shake off the crustaceans, and then they swim back into the sea. They're really, really strange.
