Pacific coastline flooded with ‘sea pickles’

sea pickles

There's lots of curious creatures in the world's oceans — and we got a stunning glimpse at some of the most mysterious ones very recently — but most of the time they keep to themselves, zipping around the depths or floating listlessly on the sea floor. Now, beaches along the Pacific coast are being invaded with a curious creature that, while harmless, is creating something of a scene. They're "sea pickles," and they're definitely not what you want to see when you're about to soak up some sun on the sand.

two headed porpoise

Mother Nature has provided humanity with some pretty awesome things in the past — existence, for example, is a pretty solid gift — but sometimes things don't go exactly as planned. That appears to be the case with a porpoise recently caught by Dutch fishermen. The animal, which was snagged entirely by accident, is the world's first documented example of a two-headed harbor porpoise, and it's quite a sight.

Angry Octopus Intimidates Cameraman By Blowing Itself Up Like a Giant Balloon

Don’t interrupt an octopus while it’s eating and don’t you dare point your camera at it because the octopus ain’t having it. In fact, the super villain creature of the ocean will try to intimidate you when you do that because it’ll charge at you, stare you down, and then inflate itself like a giant parachute so it…

Deep beneath the ocean’s surface, scientists have spotted for the first time a living “ghost fish,” an eel-like creature in the family of Aphyonidae. The roughly four-inch long fish has eerie white skin and a tadpole-like tail, and was captured on camera on a ridge about 8200 feet underwater in the Pacific. “I am sure that this is the first time a fish in this family has ever been seen alive,” Bruce Mundy, a fisheries biologist with NOAA, said in the video. “This is really an unusual sighting.”

See the World From a Container Ship in This Surprisingly Lovely Video

See the World From a Container Ship in This Surprisingly Lovely Video

Climbing aboard a container ship isn’t exactly the most glamorous way to travel, but when the footage is condensed into a time lapse—oh my, is it stunning. It’s especially neat to see the different layers of the sky dance overhead, but the coolest part is just being around all that blue. It really makes you feel the vastness of the world.

Flying Underwater Looks Like So Much Fun

Flying Underwater Looks Like So Much Fun

Obviously, you can’t actually fly underwater because people can’t fly (and it wouldn’t even be called flying since you’re underwater) but using this subwing attached to a boat, you can completely submerge yourself underwater and make it feel like you’re gliding through the air (but really cutting through the ocean). God, it must be so fun to do in clear water.

Watch a Huge 100-Foot Wave Crash Down and Smash a Ship

Damn. It’s like hitting a wall. Or rather, it’s like a wall hitting you. This footage shows giant wave after giant wave pummeling a ship and when you think they’ve finally weathered the storm, in comes the biggest and baddest wave that smacks the boat silly.

Surfing has never looked more majestic than in this drone video

The waves of Teahupo’o in Tahiti are so lovely that surfing them is the only way to truly appreciate them. Or, well, I guess watching other people surf through this drone video is a pretty damn good way to see its majestic beauty too. Brent Bielmann and Eric Sterman shot this drone video for Surfing Magazine and it captures angles of surfers and the glassy waves like we never seen them before.
