Mystery mass is… eggs

Deep Sea News, real scientists, peer into the finding of a :

Human-sized mystery blob found off the coast of Cuba | Deep Sea News.

These masses can be up to 1.8 meters long (5’10”), and contain baby diamond-shaped squid (Thysanoteuthis rhombus).

Ask the right person and get a real answer. This mystery was solved before it got disseminated to the masses and made into alien snot or a sea monster sperm or something else ridiculous. It’s nice to learn that nature is weird and wonderful in its own right.

Maybe they should have asked a geologist about the Bigfoot rock head?

    Wow! That is so freakin’ cool! Having surfed for years I can attest to the fact that the ocean is truly amazing, and alien (as in foreign) its filled with amazing creatures, many of which we’ve never seen.

    I took an oceanography class out of Dana Point while in college, and it was one of the best experiences of my educational career.
