Giant Isopod....damn! Yes this is real! Do you think I'd be posting this if it weren't?
Looks kinda sinister.....I feel sorry for the person who took this photo.....chances are they're not with us any more...*sniff*
This thing probably proceeded to devour the person on the spot....it seems likely does it not?
I mean look at the thing! It can't possibly NOT endanger our lives....
Apparently the things have no taste in humans whatsoever.....thank God look:
Although generalist scavengers, these 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.
They are known to attack trawl catches. As food is scarce in the deep ocean biome, giant isopods must make do with what fortune brings; they are adapted to long periods of famine and have been known to survive over eight weeks without food in the aquariums of irresponsible owners.
So no need to worry I think we're safe for now...:P
