Mysterious alien-like sea monsters that lurk UNDERWATER

1 min


Eerie images have revealed the extraterrestrial appearance of ocean dwelling creatures and given a unique insight into how animals develop in this mysterious world.

Juvenile sea monsters were photographed in the dead of night off the coast of the Philippines in the Pacific Ocean.

Still in the early stages of development, the larvae have yet to develop the full colouration of an adult and their first specks of colour contrast strikingly against the translucent glow emanating from the rest of animal.

Jun V Lao, an amateur photographer from Pasig in Indonesia, captured the photos with an underwater camera at night while visiting Janao Bay Inn, Philippines.

The scuba diver claims his images showcase larval marine wildlife in a unique manner.

Mr Lao believes the haunting appearance of the animals makes these fish the closest thing to aliens on earth.

Mr Lao said: ‘It’s not everyday you see alien like creatures living right here beneath our oceans for real.

‘The images shared are larval stages of various fish species, roughly from 1mm in size to an inch which you can only capture during diving at the wee hours of the night
