How Blue Planet II has blown our minds

How Blue Planet II has blown our minds
From BBC - December 5, 2017

If you have been sucked into the world of Blue Planet II for the last seven weeks, your Sundays probably have not been the same.

Traditional sofa happiness has been replaced with outrage at a Puffin having its catch stolen after a 60-mile round trip, or horror after seeing a Bobbit worm.

If you have not seen a Bobbit worm yet - stick around.

Here are some of the more memorable moments from the second series.

The bird-eating fish

You'd be forgiven for associating bird-eating on a Sunday with gravy and vegetables. These giant trevally, however, have taken things to a whole new level.

They usually hunt on their own, but here 50 of them teamed up to take down a flock of birds going a bit too close to the water.

Feathers and all.

Beware the Bobbit worm

First of all, THIS IS A WORM WITH TEETH.

Second of all, it's named after a woman who cut off her husband's penis with a knife.

Lorena Bobbitt carried out the attack in the 1990s. Her then husband, John Wayne Bobbitt, had it surgically reattached and went on to be an adult film star.

You are looking at it in a different way now, are not you.

A shell suit with a difference

This octopus is more intelligent than all of us. Why? Because when a shark wanted to eat it, it HID FROM IT IN PLAIN SIGHT.

The jellyfish you do not want to mess with

Turns out whales sleep too
