This Beautiful House Is Made of Snot


From SciShow.

Thanks again to MBARI and the Monterey Bay Aquarium for collaborating with us on this episode of SciShow. All of the amazing deep-sea video in this episode was taken with MBARI’s remotely operated vehicles!

Follow MBARI’s research and technology on their YouTube channel linked below. And if you’re able to, please consider making a donation to help the Monterey Bay Aquarium continue their mission while they’re closed. Your gift will be put to work for ongoing animal care and maintenance of the Aquarium:

These giant balls of mucus may seem like a bizarre sight in the open ocean, but all this snot serves a purpose, both for the tiny creatures that produce it and for the entire ocean ecosystem!
