Peculiar Transparent “Alien” Sea Creature Piques Social Media Interest

1 min read


A video of a transparent sea creature caught by a fisherman has been holding eyeballs on the Internet.

Shared on Twitter, the clip shows a person holding a small fish-like marine creature that looks entirely see-through. The creature’s legs, head, and other body parts are transparent, as light can be seen through them. “Tell me this is not an alien,” the text on the video read.

Just days ago, an old video of another transparent ocean creature did the rounds on social media. It showed the animal, Cystisoma in someone’s hand, moving its see-through legs. The tissues of the creature’s internal organs are organized to make it look entirely transparent. According to the video’s caption, the organism is “a crustacean that lives between 600-1000 m deep in the ocean.”
