5 comments to Six Gill to Shrimp: We’re Having Pig Tonight!
Wow, one of the dead zones was so deadly a pig carcass stayed down two months without being scavenged. That’s truly frightening. Why doesn’t SciFi make a stupid movie about that kind of deep sea menace.
Jason, that’s brilliant! “It came from depths of the … DEAD ZONE!!!!”
Its amazing what no oxygen can do a dead prey item.
instead of Sharktopus, I’d like to see Globster… 10 yards of bubble-wrap and a few models in bikinis… that’s on par with what syfy shows these days…
The ORCA carcass-cam is still online… no piggy remains, but they’re using a light-lure to see if it attracts anything.
[...] amazing part, as a commenter at Deep Sea News notes, is that the water’s so oxygen-poor that the pig sat untouched for two whole months. [...]
Hah, I saw this talk at AGU Ocean Sciences Meeting just this past week. It was AWESOME. The take-home message was that bacon trumps breathing – up to a point.
