A Halloween video from The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute:
Inspired by the 1958 film "The Blob", our newest Halloween video introduces you to some of the blob-like creatures found at the deeper depths of our ocean. These beautiful animals aren't dangerous, although a few are a little bit creepy! This music was originally composed by Danny Elfman for "Edward Scissorhands" and was performed and recorded by Peter Modin in 1995. In order of appearance: the giant comb jelly (Aulacoctena), which spends its life floating around capturing small animals with two sticky tentacles; the abyssal sea slug (Bathydoris aioca), which extracts oxygen from the water with the round structures on its surface; the deep-sea comb jelly (Beroe abyssicola), an unassuming carnivore; the predatory tunicate (sea squirt, Megalodicopia hians), capable of entrapping small crustaceans; the blob sculpin (Psychrolutes phrictus), an odd egg-brooding fish; the cute-as-a-button, web-armed dumbo octopus (Opisthoteuthis); the giant sea slug (Tochuina tetraquetra) that eats sea pens and corals; the sea pig (sea cucumber, Scotoplanes globosa), which feeds on deep-sea mud; the decorator crab (Loxorhynchus crispatus), which covers itself with sponges in hopes that it can't be seen!
