In the depths of the ocean was found a 50-meter predator with deadly poison ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

The underwater vehicle of the Schmidt Institute of Oceanology filmed a giant siphonophore belonging to the genus Apolemia. This was reported by Newsweek.

A unique filamentous creature was found in the deep-sea canyons of Ningalu off the west coast of Australia. According to scientists, the diameter of its outer ring was about 15 meters, and the length could reach 50 meters and was comparable to the height of an 11-story building. "It is likely that this is the largest instance known to science," says the Schmidt Instituteโ€™s Twitter page.


Siphonophores are colonies consisting of thousands of tiny specialized clones. They are predators and prey on fish, crustaceans and other underwater animals. To do this, some clones inject poison into them, after which other clones absorb and digest the prey, distributing nutrients throughout the colony. Some siphonophores are deadly to humans.

6 OFF-GRID LIVING Inventions & Products #1 & #2

I always enjoy these videos. ย I own a small, remote island that has been (primarily) solar-powered for nearly 20 years. ย Over that time, weโ€™ve seen so many products come and go. ย Even really great ideas sometimes fail, due to lack of customers, not because the product wasnโ€™t good. ย But that is slowly changing, as more people are using off-grid concepts, even while on-grid...such as solar generators you can use indoors, during a power outage. ย So much better and safer than gas generators people sometimes donโ€™t vent properly. ย Keep โ€˜em coming! ย ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ultra-Small Water Power Generator

Hydroelectric generation uses water power to drive turbines and is an important means for producing the electricity so essential for modern life. Facilities have been becoming smaller, with generators able to use diverse water power sources. Weโ€™ll look at an ultra-small generator developed in Gifu thatโ€™s highly portable and works even with shallow, slow moving water. Already tested powering street lights, it promises to allow people in the worldโ€™s remote regions to generate their own electricity for the first time.
