    Giant isopod which lives in the deep sea - YouTube

    Giant Isopods are important scavengers in the deep-sea environment; they are found at a depth of 170 meters (560 ft) to the pitch darkness of 2,140 meters (7,020 ft), where pressures are high and temperatures are very low.

    Although generalist scavengers, these giant isopods are mostly carnivorous and feed on dead whales, fish, and squid; they may also be active predators of slow-moving prey such as sea cucumbers, sponges, radiolarians, nematodes, and other zoobenthos, and perhaps even live fish.

    So was that a fish market? Why do I get the feeling someone eats them.

    I think one of those exploded out of my chest once, while eating dinner with friends. I'll never forget that night. :shock:
