EXperts who explored the depths of the sea were actually the ones being investigated.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shared an image of its remote-controlled vehicle, Deep Discoverer, while being watched by a giant squid.

The squid can be seen & # 39; lurking & # 39; and & # 39; crawling & # 39; above the vehicle while it explores the face of a steep slope.

The discovery was made during the operational mission of Okeanos Explorer, which maps areas of the & # 39; unknown and poorly understood deepwater areas of the continental margin of Southeast America & # 39 ;.

"Watch this dormant deep-sea squid crawling on top of remote-controlled vehicle Deep Discoverer (D2) while the vehicle explores the face of a sharp feature during Windows to the Deep 2019, wrote the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in their Facebook post.

"Have you ever had the feeling that you are being watched?" Good that D2 is keeping Seirios on guard. "

Seirios is the "camera sled" that is attached to the ship, so that it is not washed away by the underwater stream.

The remote-controlled vehicle is capable of diving to a depth of 3.7 km and offers scientists unprecedented access to the deep ocean, NOAA shared on its website.

The most important feature of Deep Discoverer is the ability to capture high-definition video and photos, such as the rear squid, with the vehicle's primary camera that can zoom in on a 10-foot three-inch organism distance.

And the 20 LED lamps provide 150,000 lumens of light, illuminating the otherwise dark ocean depths.

The majestic creature, which is approximately one to two meters long, is called Taningia Danae or whiplash squid

The NOAA and partners will conduct NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer cartography and remotely controlled vehicle activities to collect critical basic information about unknown and poorly understood deepwater areas of the continental margin of Southeast America along the coasts of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

The expedition started in Miami, Florida, and ended in Key West, Florida.

Deep Discoverer had another magical moment in 2015 with another deep-sea squid.

The majestic marine animal, which is approximately one to two meters long, becomes & # 39; Taningia Danae & # 39; or & # 39; whiplash squid & # 39; mentioned.

When it descended to the sea floor of the Pacific Ocean in Hawaii on September 19, 2015, a remote-controlled underwater vehicle caught it on camera.

Showing off with a bright pink hue as it swam through the deep blue ocean, scientists said it could emit a bright light. According to them, this is used to blind prey, to measure distance or to signal dating.

Experts said the September observation was one in a million, since the whiplash squid is rarely seen alive.
