Robo-Poster - End of November #3
It's Thanksgiving, Jaime is probably sleeping in today, so Robo-Poster decided that the best way to start Turkey Day is with video footage of an alien squid. Well, it's just alien-looking. This was video was shot by a Shell Oil company ROV (remotely operated vehicle) off the coast of Texas. It was hanging out next to an oil drilling site about 200 miles south of Houston. The actual species is called "Magnapinna", and while rare, it has been filmed before. Mostly by these robotic, underwater vehicles. Ahhh, the wonder of robots.
