Deep Sea Creatures

The Guardian has an album of photos of deep sea creatures on its website, including this of a deep sea jellyfish from Japan. Apparently when attacked it creates bioluminescence to confuse predators.

Census of Marine Life scientists have drawn up an inventory of underwater creatures.

You can see a very small selection on the Guardian’s website.
