Wow!  That's cool!  Maybe it was a group of whales vocalizing in unison?  Or else a signal for the mothership to come and pick it up........... huh.gif

Good find. It also scares me a bit to think there is something bigger then a blue whale out there.

lame... i doubt theres any undiscovered animals out there BIGGER than the largest known animal on earth. i know theres probably loads of undiscovered sea creatures smaller than a blue whale, but we would have found it if it was as huge as they say it was. ever think it was maybe a group of blue whales swimming in a tight group?

Onomatopoeia. Well, that doesn't change the fact that it's a dumb word. I mean, you gotta wonder what was going on in the room the day they needed to make up that word.

you sort of got a point, but think about it. We knew giant squids existed for hundreds of years, but we only photographed a live one last year. Who knows what else can hide down there.

This is not a new story.  In fact, the Japanese sent chum & cameras down in the trench where the "bloop" sound originated.  What they saw on the cameras was unbelievable.  However, they are not willing to disclose any footage.  Why?  dunno.

I do know this...we have only discovered a small fraction of our great oceans.  We have no idea what is down there.  It could be a massive fish that only dwell along the ocean bottom.

We've explored such a tiny fraction of the oceans that ruling out an animal larger than a blue whale is perhaps a little too soon. The only real problem I have with the idea of a gigantic animal living in the deepest, darkest parts of the ocean would be that, in general, complete darkness isn't productive to life...plants need light for example, and you need plants to establish a food chain.

Although there are ecosystems of sorts that exist in complete darkness, they tend to have very little variety of life, and very few large predators. An animal that was as large (or lager) as a blue whale would also need to have enough food to sustain an animal of that size.

But, again, we've explored such a tiny portion of the ocean that it's not difficult to imagine. Whether larger than a blue whale or not, I am certain there are plenty of very large marine animals that haven't been discovered yet.

  • Most people can hear; however, how many really listen?

Posted 05 November 2006 - 06:34 PM

With it not being heard again, it seems more likely that it was something natural going on. Don't know if there a way to determine how a sound is made.

Basing the size of an animal by the sound it makes is foolish. Black drum can make noises that reverberate through dozens of homes, as one once did in Punta Gorda, FL.

It's very eerie and beautiful. I personally think humpbacks sing better.
