Scientists spot giant ‘mystery creature’ while exploring shipwreck




It’s cool enough to find a shipwreck. It’s even better to spot a massive, mysterious sea creature hanging out with the wreck. That’s what happened to the crew of the OceanX OceanXplorer research vessel during an expedition in the Red Sea in late 2020.

A year later, OceanX is revealing more information about the remarkable animal that swam past its remote-vehicle camera as it examined the wreck of the passenger ship Pella at a depth of nearly 2,800 feet (850 meters).
