Real life sea monster filmed at 8,000' depth in the "Mississippi Canyon" trench in the Gulf of Mexico on an oil rig.

Horrible!

Yup, it's supposedly an unknown species. It's the 'elbows' that make it look like something out of The Thing. There are a few videos posted that must have been taken from one original. It comes from a Shell camera. Hard to tell from the video but I'd love to know how long those tentacles are!

The creatures of the deep sea are fascinating, but seriously weird. I agree, it's the elbows that are alarming.
 
You might enjoy exploring the deep ocean via National Geographic's Crittercam or, when your niece/nephew is older, you can point them in that direction. Where is that darned baby, Darth?
