    10. Valuable Vomit
    When eight-year-old Charlie Naysmith discovered an odd gray rock while walking along a beach with his father in Dorset, U.K. in 2012, he had no idea he had just stumbled onto a potential small fortune. The strange substance turned out to be something called ambergris.

    9. ‘Supergiant’ Crustacean
    This guy gives a whole new meaning to the term “jumbo shrimp.” Alicella gigantea is a “supergiant” crustacean that grows over 20 times larger than most of its relatives, who are usually less than a half-inch (1 cm) long on average -- so small that they carry the nickname “insects of the sea.”

    8. The Maid Of Harlech
    In 2007, a family was walking along a beach in Wales when they spotted something quite unexpected. An entire airplane partially exposed in the water. It was a World War II-era American fighter plane called the Maid of Harlech poking out of the sea along a north Wales beach. Can you imagine finding a whole airplane while you are going for a swim?

    7. Purple Blob
    A team of scientists aboard the research vessel E/V Nautilus discovered a bizarre purple blob off the southern California coast in 2016. They found the bright jelly sac, which appeared to be just a few inches in diameter, with the help of a deep-sea remote operated vehicle (ROV) that was combing the ocean floor.

    6. Sargasso Sea
    The Sargasso Sea is the only sea that contains no land boundaries. It’s defined exclusively by four ever-changing ocean currents, meaning its borders constantly shift.

    5. Pink Manta Ray
    Australia is famous for its incredibly diverse and often strange, and dangerous, wildlife. While freediving off the Great Barrier Reef in 2015, photographer Kristian Laine snapped a picture of a bright pink manta ray. He was looking through his camera when the creature initially swam by, causing the man to believe his equipment was malfunctioning. But, much to his surprise, he was seeing correctly.

    4. Thousands Of Rubber Duckies
    In 1992, a shipping crate en route from Hong Kong to Seattle fell overboard and spilled 28,000 plastic rubber duckies into the Pacific Ocean. They’ve appeared all over the world since then and continue to do so. Nicknamed “Friendly Floatees,” the ducks have shown up on the shores and waters of Hawaii, Alaska, South America, Australia, Scotland, and Newfoundland.

    3. Thousands Of Holes
    Last year, researchers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) announced the discovery of thousands of strange holes in the seabed off the coast of Big Sur, California. The first of these pits were discovered in 1999 during a seafloor survey, according to a statement MBARI released, revealing the strange news.

    2. Globsters
    By definition, a globster is an unidentified organic mass that washes ashore. Unlike a recognizable beached carcass, it resembles an alien-like, ancient-looking, or otherwise unknown sea creature and lacks distinctive features such as eyes and bones.

    1. “Boiling” Siberian Sea
    In October 2019, a scientific research team discovered “boiling” methane bubbles in the Eastern Siberian Sea. The fountain, which occupied an area between 43 and 54 square feet, had a gas concentration measuring six to seven times higher than the global average.
