This Mesmerising Underwater Blob Is Actually a Huge, Rare Mass of Squid Eggs

Divers Looking for a WWII Sunken Ship Unexpectedly Encounter Giant Gelatinous Egg Sac Full of Baby Squid

A team of divers filmed a rare glimpse of a huge transparent egg sac containing hundreds of thousands of baby squid.

The stunning underwater video was filmed by Ronald Raasch, 48, as he was diving with two other team members from the research vessel REV Ocean in the cold waters outside Ørsta, Norway.

On October 5, the team of divers was swimming back to shore after visiting a WWII shipwreck about 200 meters from the coast, when they had a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with a mysterious object.

Floating 17 meters below the surface and 15 meters above the ocean floor, was a giant transparent orb which the divers quickly identified as a 10-armed squid’s egg sac.
