Number 9 Octopus Nursery
Since octopi are known as solitary creatures, researchers were rather stunned when they found about a hundred of them nesting together near Costa Rica. However, another discovery would soon eclipse that one. In 2018, marine biologists deployed a remotely operated vehicle with the goal of studying an underwater volcano called the Davidson Seamount. As they were steering the vehicle at a depth of around 10,000 ft off the coast of California, it stumbled upon a creepy a sight. Between the volcano’s cracks there were numerous female octopi huddled together guarding their eggs. About a thousand Muusoctopus robustus were found in what is believed to be the world’s largest deep sea octopus garden. For those who find a mass of thousands of tentacles moving at the same time creepy, this is definitely a nightmare come true.
Number 8 Hole in the Earth
On the ocean floor, after tectonic plates separate, a void is left behind. The mantle underneath the plates then rises up and melts to fill that void. However, there’s a gap in the Earth that hasn’t repaired itself and scientists aren’t sure how it happened. The hole is located between Cape Verde islands and the Caribbean, about 3 miles below the surface. It’s an area where the sea floor is normally about 4.5 miles thick, but, upon examining the site, researchers found there was a lot of missing crust. In fact, an area of several thousand miles didn’t exhibit the typical signs of the plate repairing itself.
Number 7 Ancoracysta twista
Found on the surface of a tropical brain coral in 2017, this microorganism is largely still a mystery. There is some indication that Ancoracysta twista might belong to an early lineage of eukaryotic organisms. These are organisms with genetic material packed in a membrane-bound nucleus. However, so far, it seems this predatory microorganism isn’t closely related to anything in the animal kingdom. Ancoracysta twista is considered to be a protist, meaning that it isn’t plant, fungus or animal and doesn’t belong to any clade. Protists are often grouped with eukaryotes for convenience.
Number 6 Disappearance of the Atlantic Ocean
Even though there’s no cause for concern in the near future, researchers have recently discovered that one day the Atlantic Ocean might disappear entirely. This is due to a subduction zone 120 miles off the coast of Portugal. Subduction zones happen as a result of plates constantly pushing against each other, which usually results in lighter plates melting back into the mantle.
Number 5 Zones
Zones are exactly as terrifying as they sound. Nitrogen and phosphorus are among the most common nutrients and their presence can create algal blooms, which are an increase in density of certain types of algae. The oxygen-deprived habitat can have as little as only two oxygen particles for every one million particles.
Number 4 Sea Sponge
Chondrocladia lyra, also known as the harp sponge, was discovered in 2012, off the Coast of California at a depth of around 10,000 feet. The interesting thing about this sea sponge is the way it obtains its nutrients.
Number 3 Creepy Glass Garden
While a submersible was investigating the Marian Trough, in 2015, it discovered what so far is the deepest volcano on Earth. At 14,700 feet below the surface, they found a sight unlike they expected. Intertwined blackened lava tendrils had formed something that scientists described as a ‘garden of glass straight out of a nightmare’. The twist and turns covered a trench that was about 4.5 miles long.
Number 2 White Shark Café
Those who were terrified by the movie ‘Jaws’, might want to steer clear of this area. There’s a place in the Pacific Ocean, at the midpoint between Hawaii and the coast of California, known as the ‘White Shark Café’.
Number 1 Giant Eyeball
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Committee had to deal with a mysterious find in October, 2012. Local man, Gino Covacci, found a giant eyeball that washed up on Pompano Beach. Covacci decided to take it home where he put it in the freezer. Afterwards, Covacci notified the local police, who referred it to the appropriate authorities. A little larger than a softball, the eyeball looked like it belonged to a massive marine creature.
