These Sea Pigs Look Like Aliens

08/20/2012

The folks at Io9 posted this awesomely odd animal video so I had to share it here.  It shows marine creatures known as sea pigs going about their business on the ocean floor.  But this YouTube clip shows the sea pigs moving in fast-forward, which really highlights their otherworldly appearance.  

Check it out.  What do you think alien animals might look like?
