observer Jellyfish Giant ghost in Antarctica. Researchers, being on board a submarine, observed “otherworldly” animals off the coast. These creatures live in the deep sea: they look like flying saucers with thick “ribbons” (filaments) sticking out from their undersides.
The giant ghost jellyfish (Stygiomedusa gigantea, ed.) is one of the largest invertebrate predators in the deep sea, and was sighted by researchers who chartered the mini-submarine from cruise company Viking in early 2022. The researchers estimated that the jellyfish was more than 5 meters long, up to one to at least 10 metres, according to a study published Jan. 30 in the journal Polar Research.
Study author Daniel Moore He realized that he saw the animals for the first time on a guest camera. “I immediately recognized it for what it was, and given the rarity of sightings, I was very excited,” said Moore, a principal Viking scientist.
