Let's start with number 10. A lost city that was once a bustling metropolis. This long-lost Egyptian city was flooded and forgotten until archaeologists rediscovered it, according to science writer Laura Gegel. The Lost City was first discovered off the coast of Alexandria, Egypt in 2000 and has been the subject of regular excavations. Since then for centuries the city of Heracleon has been shrouded in myth and is believed to be a legend the city visited by Paris and Helen of Troy and mentioned by numerous ancient historians such as Theodora and Herodotus had been lost for almost 1200 years and more built Around its great temple the city was crisscrossed by a network of canals a sort of ancient Egyptian Venice and its islands were home to small shrines and houses that were once a large city today its history is largely obscured and no one he's pretty sure how he ended up completely underwater number nine a giant eyeball south florida beaches are usually places where people find seashells, small crawling creatures, and a shark tooth here and there, but in october 2012, a man walking in Pompano Beach stumbled upon something out of the ordinary, a huge disembodied word that a giant eyeball washed up on a South Florida beach had created a stir on the Internet and people were wondering what monster marine is. now swimming with an eye patch it turns out it's just an eyeball of an average sized swordfish.
Florida wildlife authorities explain that swordfish are extremely common off the coast of South Florida. The eyeball was probably taken out by a fisherman who threw it into the water and it appeared on the beach. It is not some kind of sea monster or anything, although the official explanation put an end to many speculations about the mysterious eyeball, it is still a strange discovery. and it has left many people dumb
founded. After all, it's not every day that you walk along the beach in Florida and discover a giant, lone eyeball that washes ashore anyway because it's justifiably strange, gross, and mysterious, all at the same time.
At the same time, the story earned the title of National Geographic's
strangeststory of 2012. Number eight, an underwater river, an underwater river, yes, you heard it. Okay, but how can a river flow under the ocean? You may be wondering. Well,
diverslocated a secret underwater river called Cenote Angelita in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. The river was actually formed due to a thick layer of hydrogen sulfide at a point where fresh water and salt water became trapped in the cave due to a sinkhole that was caused by a limestone collapse and would kill you if you tried to breathe it in. sonota angelita or little angel looks perfectly normal from the surface but if you dive down to around 30 meters you start to see what looks like a strange faint bottom appearing below with some ghostly trunks and branches of bare trees sticking out.
As you get closer you begin to feel the effects of narcosis as you see an expanse of faint fog below, at the top of the cloud, you stop and look around, everything seems surreal and an eerie feeling takes over. of you, amplified by the effects of nitrogen on your brain, is how Meyer Dive describes this hauntingly beautiful natural sight offered by Angelita dive trips. You packed your gear, but giant oarfish number seven, without a doubt, the physical credits of the giant oarfish are what make it the strangest inhabitant of
deepwaters or the fish can grow larger than a school bus and have silver skin shiny with long red or similar pelvic fins and a long red. dorsal fin rising as a main crest of light on the top of their head those who were lucky enough to have seen them on the sea surface often confused them with a sea snake their unique appearance has made them so mysterious that Japan even includes the creature in its folklore traditionally known as ryugu no tukai in Japanese or the messenger of the palace of the sea gods or the fish are long considered harbingers of natural disasters, citing that an oarfish washed ashore in Japan Thought to be a bad sign, as oarfish are commonly believed to be a harbinger of earthquakes and tsunamis, the myth became more popular when more than a dozen fish washed up on Japan's beaches the year before the disaster. the Fukushima nuclear power plant in 2011, but scientists dispute such claims and believe that global warming or subtle changes in the Earth's crust could cause the current to stir and push bottom creatures toward the surface number six a frilled shark greets The frilled shark, the most fascinating and terrifying creature that lives in the dark depths of the ocean, has a jagged, dinosaur-like appearance with slender bodies that can coil and contort in a serpentine fashion.
Frilled sharks have rarely been seen in their natural environment. They are so rare that we didn't have any recordings of them until 2004. Fruit sharks are claimed to have been living in the ocean for 80 million years, their prehistoric era. The origins are supposedly obvious in their primitive body almost all rare animals, the closest relatives are extinct a long time ago, their faces are quite similar to those of a snake and when they open their mouth you can see more than 300 teeth in 25 rows, fruit sharks hunt their prey. as big as half the length of its body, so once you're in that mouth you don't get out.
Fruit sharks are quite muscular and may be able to lunge and perform a movement similar to what you would expect from a land snake. A fisherman in Australia who caught one of these strange beasts in 2015 told local radio that it was like a large eel and that the head looked like something out of a horror movie. It was pretty gruesome and a strange looking sea monster was a catch you never want. To redo underwater sculpture number five, swimsuits and snorkels are generally not considered appropriate attire for viewing art, but that is exactly what you need to fully appreciate these sculptures because they are all located beneath the clear waters. of the Caribbean, designed by artist Jason Dakares Taylor in 2006, the Granada underwater sculpture park has been listed as one of National Geographic's 25 wonders of the world and there are currently more than 75 of them installed underwater.
The life-size sculptures range from whimsical figures such as a cyclist and a man sitting at a desk tapping from a typewriter to more poetic installations, including Grace Reef's female figures, which are sometimes hidden by sand and then revealed again by the tides. The project aimed to build an artificial barrier where corals and other marine species could migrate and find refuge. New home in an area that was devastated by Hurricane Ivan in 2004. More recently, 14 new sculptures have also been added to Grenada's underwater sculpture park to pay tribute to the nearly two million African slaves thrown overboard during the transatlantic trade of slaves.
Four ancient pills If you haven't cleaned out your medicine cabinet in a while, you might find some ancient medicine hidden in there, but they wouldn't be any older than the medicines found at the bottom of the sea off the coast of Italy Archaeologists investigating an ancient shipwreck off the coast of Tuscany stumbled upon a rare find: a hermetically sealed tin container with well-preserved pills dating from approximately 140 to 130 BC. An analysis of these antique quality discs, about four centimeters in diameter and one centimeter thick, revealed a zinc-based substance. composition that also included iron oxide, starch, beeswax, pine resin, a mixture of animal and vegetable fats, flax fiber, charcoal grains and pollens.
Researchers consulted ancient sources for medical information. They believe these tablets may have been used as an eye wash. Historians believe the presence of the medicine chest. suggests that the ship may have had a doctor on board or at least someone trained in rudimentary first aid based on the shape and composition of the tablets, researchers believe that these, unlike ancient scrolls, may actually provide little insight. common medicinal practices from the Roman era, so the presence of physical evidence is especially exciting. Jason Voorhees underwater statue number three, as if horror movies aren't filled with enough things that go bump in the night.
Here's an underwater discovery that will terrify horror movie fans even more. In northern Minnesota, someone created a life-size statue. The statue of Jason Voorhees, one of Hollywood's most infamous killers, was complete with his iconic hockey mask and his machete and thrown to the bottom of Crystal Lake. He's been there ever since waiting to give unsuspecting
diversa heart attack. The man behind the statue, Curtis Lars, says The statue is planted 120 feet
deepin the lake, adding to the chill. Lars says the lake is an old iron or well. He also recorded a video of the submerged nightmare he created in 2013 and uploaded it to YouTube and it has been giving goosebumps all over the internet ever since. users and scaring people who are already afraid to go into the water even though Jason isn't real, imagine how you would have reacted upon bumping into him, you would definitely have wanted to strangle him for making your worst nightmares come true, vampire squid number two.
Is vampire squid real? Yes, it's real, but don't worry, it's not really a vampire or even a squid scientifically known as vampire thesis infernalis or vampire squid from hell. This unique deep-sea creature receives its striking name not because it sucks blood but because of its blood-red color, its cape-like membranes and its tooth-like spines. This species lives in the almost complete dark waters of the mesopelagic zone when If disturbed, the vampire squid inverts its cape and spews a copious cloud of sticky bioluminescent mucus toward potential predators, while the posture exhibited by this mysterious creature can appear intimidating.
Surprisingly, the vampire hell squid refuses to kill this strange animal. It satisfies its appetite with plankton and rotting remains of dead fish like most deep-sea organisms. It is very difficult to study vampire squid in their natural environment. Little is known about the behavior of these animals number 1. giant knife and among other strange underwater discoveries on our list we have another, a huge underwater knife that was supposedly found by a team of professional divers in 2014, there is not much to say. To explain this mysterious image, we only see a large knife held by three divers in a place in the Earth's oceans.
Since the image was published by some anonymous source, it has been widely circulated on social networking sites and diving forums and, surprisingly , the divers holding this giant knife never made any public appearance to claim credit for this chance discovery. Regardless, many considered it proof that before recorded history, perhaps tens of thousands of years ago, giants ruled the land or, more than likely, it's a prop that somehow ended up in the ocean, but Who knows for sure it could be proof of the existence of giant races. Let us know in the comments section what you think of continued exploration of the depths of the ocean.
