“Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?”

Well, not the characters from this story on Wired News! But, it’s still an interesting article about deep-sea life. Life so strange, in fact, that it almost seems like it came from an alien planet. Imagine, creatures capable of consuming prey larger than their own body! Or, strange, glowing, flowery jellyfish that are self-illuminating. Or, even a type of previously unknown, worm-like life. Well, it’s all there at the bottom of the ocean.
One of the reasons that I’m posting this is that someone on a created culture list has been asking about the many forms of life. In fact, he was lamenting that he knew so very little about biology that he was afraid that his vision was too limited. I think about that every time I read an article like this. No matter what I can come up with, nature has beaten me to the punch.

Hope it inspires y’all a bit.
