Extraordinary 'transparent' creature discovered from deep ocean; video goes viral


The world is yet to discover the entirety of deep seas and oceans and there is no doubt that there are many such creatures and wonders of nature that are yet to be found by humans and lie deep down those water bodies.

While researchers and underwater scientists continue to capture footage of various alien-looking and strange species of creatures lurking in the deep, this time as well they have made another strange discovery of a creature that looks completely ‘transparent’. Yes, you’ve heard it right. A video of the creature, seemingly a ‘hyperiid’ has been shared on social media and is going viral.

Shared on Twitter by a user named ‘Massimo’, the video of the transparent-looking hyperiid shows it moving while being in the hands of a person. Not just its outer body but all its organs are also transparent. A caption has been also added providing further details about it.

“Cystisoma is a crustacean that lives between 600-1000 m deep in the ocean. Its body is totally transparent: only its eyes are pigmented. This one has a brooding pouch full of orange eggs,” the caption reads.

The user in a reply to a comment also added that the creature was found at surface pressure with no hope for it. It was picked for research by the scientist who also filmed the clip, he added.

The video was posted on 29 December 2022 and has been grabbing eyeballs since then. Many social media users went to the comment section and shared their reactions. Some also noted that such creatures should be left alone in their habitat and not bothered by unnecessary human intervention.

“Leave the shit alone it’s 600-1000m deep for a reason, for you to leave it alone”, a user wrote, while another one commented, “How is this surviving outside water? Wouldn’t this be alien conditions for it?”
