Meet Tullimonstrum and isn't he a beauty. He has such a beast of a trunk that it's even got a long beak with teeth at the end of it. There's no telling how those portholes work but the eyes on trunks are as creepy as you could ever want. (WIKI: Tullimonstrum)
Ed: it doesn't even grow to two feet long!
Try to show a little flexibility, Stanley Kubrick. Using a green screen wouldn't be so good but a blue screen would be excellent to isolate Tullimonstrum from his background and then you can blow him up to eighty feet.
Think of how Tullimonstrum's trunk rises out of the water so the beak can grab your partner and then it disappears with her before you know she's gone. Nowhere in the world is it safe to go near the water anymore because ... beware the Tully Monster.
No matter how seemingly worthless the animal, scientists can find a reason to argue about it and the question is whether it's really a vertebrate ... and how well I know. It keeps me awake too. (Science Daily: 'Tully monster' mystery is far from solved, group argues)
The brain for Tullimonstrum is in the tail and, oddly enough, the sex organs are in the midsection. Hitting it in the midsection won't so much slow it down as turn it on so you might want to be mindful of that since you could otherwise suddenly learn more of their reproductive behavior than you may want to know.
And there you were thinking a shark is the nastiest thing you can find underwater. How about if they're social creatures and they come after you by the hundreds or thousands. They're like marine piranha and Miami Beach will never be the same. You won't even be safe when you're sunbathing since they can snatch you right off the sand.
Ed: the Japanese sci fi moviemakers would have made a political statement out of it.
We can do that. The frequent oil spills into the ocean resulted in mutations in Tullimonstrum which ultimately gave it the ability to leave the water to come up on land ... and eat your whole family.
Tullimonstrum ... first it took the beaches ... now it's coming for you ... aaaiiiiyyyeeeee!
