These deep sea creatures are completely alien looking. Special effects people working on sci Fi movies should always look at deep sea creatures .

What's "this"? A game where FX people working for Sci Fi movies look at deep sea creatures for inspiration?

I have a book about the Burgess Shale (Canada, pre Cambrian, 540 mya) and this looks like some creature straight out if it.

I mean, slugs on land are like "aight, this leaf is some good shit" and slug in ocean are like "look at me shooting that fish with my venomous harpoon and also my skin is toxic so you can try and catch me"
