All right, seriously.

There are crustaceans that have Predator helmets? 

Really, nature?

Ahh, what am I saying. Everyone knows movie makers are all ripoffs anyway. Real cool triceratops-lookalike prawn.

WHAAAAT. This thing is CRAZY.

CRAZY.

I am so shocked right now. Freaked out in the best possible way at the weirdness and awesomeness of all the creatures in the sea.

Thank you for taking these photos! ;;

Was this done in lab? If so, do you capture specimens in chambers that keep the pressure constant?

This shot was done in the lab and this creature wasn't alive. It's just a shot for scientific needs.

That is the most awesome, weirdest thing ever. It's got a bloody shield for a head.

Gorgeous shot.
