Afraid of the water?
Let's get an Aquatic Cryptid thread going.
Every time I think the world is an okay place, I suddenly remember Bobbit Worms.
Fun Fact: Bobbit Worms grow up to 3 meters long (10 feet).
Funner Fact: They can lash out and bite so hard and fast, that their prey (fish, crustaceans, coral, anything) are often sliced clean in half.
Oh So Fun: They burrow their entire body beneath the sand/mud, lashing out in the blink of an eye at anything that causes the water to wiggle one of its five antennae.
THE FUN KEEPS COMING: Bobbit Worms are covered in sharp bristles all along both sides of their body. If one of these hooks touches a living organism, that organism undergoes PERMANENT local paralysis.
HAPPY SWIMMING, FUCKERS!
I'd love to hear about some of these, I had an idea for a story where a semi-futuristic marine biologist goes in a one man craft to explore the deepest parts of earths waters, places completely uncharted, and as he gets deeper he sees giant leviathans and twisted horrors long forgotten by mother earth
I am always uncomfortable as fuck when swimming in waters where i can't see the bottom. Always makes me feel like something will grab me.
Once when i was swimming a fish bumped into me and i almost pissed myself.
Not God's idea.
I'm guessing if that creature could traverse out of water then it would do so in short bursts with rests in between. And just ftr... I did understand the concept of hydrostatic pressure but it didn't cross my mind, probably because I was tired af and that guy's wording pissed me off.
one day was beside a river with some friend.
we sat under a bridge that crossed the river
and my frien noticed something on the ground near the water and i swear it was this fucking shit
>looking like a long dong with a hole and teeth at the end
still don't know what are those...
Swimming in the creeks/rivers is a redneck pastime that I never participated in until last year.
It was a million degrees out and I was on verge of a heatstroke. Our air conditioning was fucked, so I dragged my girlfriend to one of the rivers across the road from where I lived.
By the time we got there, I was all out of fucks to give, and jumped right in. The water temperature was perfect, and the current tickled my balls. The cherry on top was the rolling meadows and valleys that surrounded us.
We done this almost everyday, and I would sometimes fuck my girlfriend in the water. A few UTI's later, my girlfriend and I ventured under a bridge adjacent to the river to change clothes. She discovered 4 or 5 worms that were latched onto her nipples.
Needless to say, she wouldn't swim with me anymore, and is now deathly afraid of worms.
So today the little fucker in pic related gets discovered.
Try again. They live in coral. Saltwater tank keepers occasionally end up with them by accident. Check out some fish-keeping forums- one guy chronicled his battle to get one out of his tank. Those fuckers can eat super glue without adverse effects.
Is this dude in the Atlanta Aquarium? I remember seeing something exactly like this in there, but it's movements were so consistent I was trying to figure out if it was real or not.
The name "Bobbit worm" was coined in the 1996 book Coral Reef Animals of the Indo-Pacific, in reference to Lorena Bobbitt, who was then very much in the public consciousness.
science u let me down
The Cambrian leviathan Anomalocaris, part the first.

I thought before the Hell is on the Moon.. and the Heaven is on the Sun..
But then i got enlightened these are just gates..
Think there is born a decision.. about a soul place in here this galaxy this Earth where rebirth..
Some soul born as a Eunice aphroditois.. this is a very dark place where the life not be so funny..
Some adopt to a higher place.. like..
a bird.. a fairy.. or stay here just the soul and be a ghost..
There is infinite way.. to try a lot of things.. what you want..
This (maybe sometimes serious) but just a game what you can play and play and play again.. with many forms of you.
Bu there is a guy.. who make decision for you.. cause he know you.. all your little secret..
I offer you to not humiliAtE this guy.
You're welcome bitches.
