Bathynomus, A creature from the deep

Posted by on June 16, 2012

Bathynomus, not going to win any beauty contest, no its not a giant bed bug. In fact this strange creature lives at great depths, like 8,500 ft down in the marine trench known as the Exuma Deep. When scientists sent a remote camera down to photograph deep sea creatures. after getting some great shots their screens went blank. So pull up the camera and find that something has eaten through the cables.

After repairs the camera was again lowered and started to record until suddenly.. boof.. breakdown. Again the cables had been eaten. The culprit turned out to be The Bathynomus.

The good news is they taste like lobster.  How big are they?  around Two and half pounds!!
