9 Strangest Ocean Phenomena You Wouldn't Believe Actually Exists!


There are a lot of things going on in the world you can consider strange. But let us share to you the 9 Strangest Phenomena that you would see on and under the ocean. You may not believe there are such things like these. 

9. SEA HORSES
Unlike other animals both above and below the Ocean, there's one creature where childbirth is constrained to the other sex. Sea Horse are made with a pouch on its front.



When mating, a female stores up to 1,500 eggs in the male's pouch who will then carry the eggs for up to 45 days before giving birth. 



But it's up to the female Seahorse to look after the babies after they're born. The male seahorses are nowhere to be found and often off in search of reproducing once more. 

8. PYROSOME
It looks more like a giant condom, however a Pyrosome is in fact hundreds of tiny creatures sticking to each other like glue. 


The Pyrosome is made of minute animals called zooids.
Each Zooids links to another and filters the water it to collect and eat Plankton. 


As it leaves waste behind, it propels itself into the water, gathering more Zooids. This phenomenon is so rare tot he point that one researcher once called them the "Unicorn of the sea." 

7. CHRISTMAS ISLAND'S RED CRAB MIGRATION
It was once believed that more than 43 million Red Crabs lived on Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean.


Be that as it may, what's more bewildering than the sheer quantities of crustaceans is the mass migration every year to lay their eggs.



Authorities on the island shut down traffic for up to a week to give way to the crabs to help this natural phenomena. 


6. BIOILUMINESCENSCE
Once believed to be a tall tale told by sailors and also featured in Jule's Verne's "20,000 leagues under the sea".


There has been recent re-interest in what is seemingly glowing water found primarily in the Indian Ocean near Indonesia. Scientists have inferred that the mysterious glow is actually caused by Bacteria. 


5. ROGUE WAVES
Otherwise called as Freak waves, monster waves, episodic waves, killer waves, extreme waves, and  abnormall waves. There's no denying that this previous myth is currently a reality. 


Every once in a while, a wave dissimilar to some other comes along to disrupt and cause peril to Marine Wildlife and Ships that happen to be near it.  


They're typically preceded by a period of calmness but are possibly caused by various gravity waves that go at different speeds so they can aggregate or "pile up".



4. UNDERWATER CROP CIRCLES. 
Crop Circles aren't reserved for Midwestern Cornfields in the US, but also be found underwater in Japan.


The strange yet fascinating event is the consequence of the male puffer fish, enticing females into their circles to lure them. 


The male spends 24 hours a day for almost a week creating his masterpiece before currents threaten to wash away his hardwork.


He's hoping his artistic creation will be sufficient to charm female to make beautiful ocean magicenchantment together. 

3. GLASS SQUID
Consistent with it's name, the glass liquid has a clear but buldous body with which you can see through. 


Couple this with its large, googly eyes and it's one sea creature that is both captivating and humurous in appearance. 


There are actually 60 unique types of glass liquids and they can be found underwater in the North Atlantic.


2. SEA PENS
It's been said that the pen is mightier than the sword. If that's the case then Sea Pens are indeed a powerful creation. 

Found in long sound New Zealand, the stunning plume-looking creatures are actually colonies of little polyps which form "branches".


They're anchored to the floor by a bulb which helps to stabilize the "pens" in case of danger.


1. GIANT BEACHED WHALES
Whales that phenomenally turn up on beaches like 2014's new found incident are sick or dying. 


That is the reason they beach themselves, or rather, let the waves do it for them as they no longer have the vitality or sustenance to proceed with life. 


But what's even more troubling than how the giant mammals died is what to do with the body afterwards. 


They measure a ton so can't be moved, you can't even push them out to ocean because of the threats they pose to ships so one of the seemingly only ways to do it, then, would be the cruel-but-kind way of exploding them suchs as when a local news captured what's believed to be one of the first viral videos of an exploding whale.
