This remarkable object, which is believed to be a mass of squid eggs, was found in the waters off Norway's coast.
Like a huge, delicate bubble floating silently in the gloom, this rare discovery comes courtesy of Captain Nils Baadnes and diver Ronald Raasch from the research vessel REV Ocean.

Measuring several meters across, these egg masses can contain tens of thousands of eggs.

Exactly how squid produce such enormous structures remains unclear however it is thought that the female may initially lay a much smaller mass which then increases in size over time.

Egg masses like this one are only rarely seen due to the depth at which they are typically found.

You can view the dive team's footage of the discovery below.

The first glance, I thought I read Captain Nils Badass. Seriously though, a cool thing to find.
