The giant sea monster traps its prey in 33 feet-long mouth-arms.

Scientists piloting a remote submarine have filmed mesmerizing footage of a giant phantom predator lurking in the deep waters of Monterey Bay, California.

The giant phantom jellyfish (Stygiomedusa gigantea) was captured as it was serenely floating — its long, velvety "mouth-arms" trailing around it — at a depth of 3,200 feet (975 meters) by marine biologists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI).

This is one of only nine times that MBARI scientists have spotted the elusive creature across the institute’s many thousands of submarine dives.

"The giant phantom jelly was first collected in 1899. Since then, scientists have only encountered this animal about 100 times," MBARI said in a statement.

Wow. It is perfect

Love how it’s so strong and determined yet so gentle and fragile at the same time. It’s graceful yet confident and look at those colours. Sealife =fascinating .. so many creatures and new ones discovered all the time . Looks like a little swimming mushroom 🍄
