14-year-old Kirill Dudko from Ukraine has recently pointed scientists in Canada towards a remarkable discovery he made while watching their remote deep-sea cameras.

What he saw was the first-known video documentation of an elephant seal slurping up a hagfish off the bottom of the sea floor from an incredible depth of 2,933 feet.

Young Dudko is a young scientist obsessed with marine biology. He spends much of his time monitoring video feeds from cameras sitting on the sea-floor.

This particular video footage was filmed off the coast of Canada in the Pacific Ocean. The Ukrainian boy wrote to Neptune Canada after not being able to identify the mammal that slurped up the hagfish.

“Suddenly, a huge creature grabbed the hagfish,” Dudko wrote. “You know, it was like a horror film! This creature wasn’t a fish, and I realized it was a mammal because of its nose and mustache.”

Watch the clip to see the slurping female elephant seal in action.

Guys Reenact Another Hilarious Conversation Between Two Older Women (Video)

At the start of the summer, we posted a video featuring two 30-year-old guys lip-syncing conversations between two 60-year-old women. It’s a simple concept, which turned out to be hilarious, so I was thrilled to see they’d spent the past couple of months compiling new snippets. You wouldn’t think listening to middle-aged women talk about […]
