I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

This video just came out on Mulder’s World and has me scratching my head. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it in my life!

I’m not even going to waste time bantering! Look at this:

At first I thought it was just a sheet of something that sank into the water, but as you watch the entire video you notice some extra weird stuff going on with things actually sticking thru it like it’s part solid and part liquid and then that appendage. Is this some new species of Jellyfish?

I can’t say it’s not a hoax of some sort, but I am out of time today and can’t do any digging. Best to throw it up and let you guys at least see it.

NOTE: After getting back from a meeting and gleaning some info from our own Henry, I did a little searching and found this creature. It is in fact a jellyfish. I have to honestly admit that I’ve never seen this type before. I think it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.

This was found by Shawn at Mulder’s World.

    Thanks Henry! I didn’t have time to search, had a meeting. I thought it might be something like that. Never seen it in my life and I thought I’d seen all the different types of jellyfish.

    Still really freaky and cool though.

    A nuclear power plant had been forced to shut down because of an infestation of jellyfish-like creatures.

    As I told Henry, I have to admit, I didn’t know about this type. I love it when I learn new things. Means I can still be surprised in life. Especially things like this.

    Of course, some jellyfish are becoming too abundant, but from an aesthetic point of view, these particular jellies are beautiful. It’s like an ballet underwater.

    I’m glad I put this up, even if I did do in haste. It’s majestic and thought provoking…to me at least.

    Thanks for the links IT.

    Absolutely, they are wonderful creation.

  • I saw this video a while ago, and it’s still pretty damn awesome. Glad you were able to figure out what it was.

  • Archard

    That’s a beautiful creature.
