Mysterious, unidentified, underwater ’blob’ captured on video

Forget the Loch Ness Monster. There’s a new mysterious underwater creature that’s getting tongues wagging. But unlike Scotland’s mirage-like legend, this large gelatinous appendage that some experts are calling a Deepstaria Enigmatica has been captured on video.
The U.K.’s Daily Mail has images of the "whale-like blob" that were captured by a deep-sea remote-controlled underwater camera.
Though the milky mass looks like nothing that has ever been seen before, wild theories abound.

Everything from the remains of a whale’s placenta to a special type of jellyfish have been suggested, although the article notes that the object’s appendages and organs would make it unique among its slippery brethren.
One theory that experts have suggested is that it may be a Stygiomedusa Gigantea, a fish of the jelly variety that has only been spotted 114 times in almost as many years.
The rarely-studied (and thus perfectly named) Deepstaria Enigmatica jellyfish has also been proposed, although the mass’ host of irregularities —like its unusual organ placement — has also thrown that guess into murky waters.
Keep watching this story throughout the day as we wait for any updates.

Ocean Blob Creature From The Deep Sea Puzzles Experts, Oceaneering Quiet
A company called Oceaneering has a video that has gone loose and almost viral as experts try to figure out what is moving in the deep ocean. The bizarre ocean blob has been called everything from a whale placenta, jellyfish, fishing net or even an ET or extra terrestrial animal.
The video is tagged with deep sea diving information surrounding the video like, “Dive Number: 135″ and a recording date of April 25th, 2012. The original video that was released on YouTube has been closed and made private. Now there is a couple more videos floating around with one being 36 seconds long and the other 6 minutes and 29 seconds. One of the original videos still remains on the website LiveLeak.com as well.
The video has a company logo insignia on the bottom left hand corner that reads Oceaneering. The company’s webpage says, “Oceaneering is a global oilfield provider of engineered services and products, primarily to the offshore oil and gas industry, with a focus on deepwater applications. Through the use of its applied technology expertise, Oceaneering also serves the defense and aerospace industries.” The company is even traded on the NYSE under Oceaneering International, Inc NYSE: OII with a current price of 49.46 and after hours trading at 49.75.
