By Modern Times,

Places in Our World Legends

so writ and well described in such as the

Natural History of Norway

by Bishop Eric Pontoppidan of 1752, so noting ’twas:

 

“…Incontestably the Largest Sea Monster in The World…”

 

More recently:

In 2011 a Pack of The Giant Kraken surrounded, capsized a Boat,

attacked

and Killed Seven Fishermen in the Sea of Cortés, Mexico.

 

 

The Marine Biologist Dr. Luis Santiago from the

Universidad Autónoma Baja California Sur;..

who was rushed to this scene by the Sea, noted:

 

“…We captured one of the attackers. She is female and we believe

most of the pack to be female because of their size. We also

believe they coordinated the attack by using pigment cells

to communicate, which is very typical in a situation like this. I’m

afraid we may be seeing more of these attacks in the coming

years, and possibly forever…”

 

 

Beach Area Closures, Fishing Banned by Authorities the

usual precautions. The Report noted the increase in

such targeted aggression by the Species adding

 

“...Marine biologists

fear that the trend will continue because of the diminishing

number of fish in their tropical hunting waters…”.

Creatures Of The Deep Blue. The Slide-shows.

Nature provides expressions of Life for all environs.The size and nature of the Waters on Earth ensures a wide variety therein. Our World Legends of the Sciences and Underwater Photography go deep indeed to bring these out of the Blue. Peculiar shapes and forms bringing Life even in the dimmest depths. Join Shiro in a seek and search that dives deep to bring back… these pics. Deep Sea Creatures. The Slide-shows.

 

JUST A DROP…

 

Whilst contemplating research into Blindness and the applicable Martial Arts Training Methods (…=click=…) that NINPO Students can utilise,..

…the idea of Life in Darkness was brought to… light.

Our Deep Blue Seas and Oceans atypical (click).

 

Though comprising some 60+% of our Earth’s Living Spaces the Sunlight cannot illuminate such depths.

Light dims dramatically after some 200 mtrs and is gone by 600.

Conditions of Pressure, Temperature and Sustenance vary greatly there (click).

 

Hazards to Life indeed it seems.

Yet producing an environ quite capable of supporting a myriad of Life-forms;..

… even those evanescent…

Creatures Of The Deep Blue.

The Slide-shows….

… will showcase a few;..

…of those in the Deep and Dark… Blue.

 

Such as this and these…

THE DEEP BLUE… ZONED OUT.

 

 

The vast majority of the Marine Life is in the upper zone… the photic…

…where the Light is… too.

Light and accompanying food sources control the distribution of said Life.

 

The Marine Creatures that live and foray in the deepest reaches have and present remarkable features (click).

Illuminescence, reduced Mass and peculiar body structures, slow growth and metabolism, long feelers, teeth, jaw and so on (click).

Long Lived… too it seems.

 

Very large sized Predators are practically non-existent.

The Food-chain here will not support such.

 

Reproduction an issue… too.

Suitable mates are oft… unseen in such waters.

Several deep-sea fish,.. such as the Tripod or Lizard develop both sexed Organs for self impregnation/fertilisation… if so required.

 

Life… goes on… deep in this deep indeed.

A rich and diverse series of Life-forms has become the norm.

Even in the watery deep blue.

For many years we knew not.

 

The advent of Technology to penetrate such darkness has been a boon for discovery.

 

Millions of Life-forms known of… and still counting…

Mother Nature indeed,.. in deed and in fact… too.
