Plants and animals that live in the world's oceans.

The ocean covers 71% of the Earth, and yet we know virtually nothing about it. What is the bloop? What lurks in the darkness among the anglers and the vampire squid? If you find something cool, interesting, bizarre - anything that is related to the ocean that sparks your interest - please, mention it here.


/r/oceans also shares news, information and conservation articles about the ocean, so check it out if you're interested!

Can you help me identify this oyster? My son found it at beach in Denmark. I’ve never seen anything like it before. It looks petrified and the closes match i could find was a Crassostrea Virginica.

It’s 19cm long and 9cm wide.

What sea creature is this?

I’m at a resort in Zanzibar and saw this mesmerizing creature swimming around off of a pier. In the video it looks brown but in reality was more of a red/pinkish color. Have been searching for a while what it could be and have come up short. Thought it could be something in the cuttlefish family but nothing I’ve seen looks quite like this. Any experts out there have an idea what this could be?
