 奇妙な日本の海の生き物
This is a place you’ve probably never been. Suruga Bay, 70 miles southwest of Tokyo, off the coast of Mount Fuji. We've come here to where almost no one has ever been. To the Bay’s deepest, darkest waters. As we descend, we take note of the angler fish. It can walk across the sand with fins that have elbows. You may have an SUV in your driveway, but I am betting you don’t have an ROV... a remotely operated vehicle that’s gonna carry cameras that broadcast pictures back to our home ship. Now, we’re in the Twilight Zone, where the sun never shines. Inhabitants include some exotic eels and a giant spider crab... the largest crab in the world, found only in Japan! These crabs can grow to 12 feet across. They’re also known as the “dead man’s crab” because they have been found gnawing on the bodies of drowning victims. Now, let’s go even deeper. This submarine can descend down to 7,000 feet to discover creatures never seen by man. These are the first-known moving images of the abyssal cusk eel – a species of fish that can live deeper in the sea than any other known fish. These are lantern sharks. The tiniest sharks in existence. They are so small, they can fit in the palm of your hand. And finally, we’re in the right place at the right time. In a rarely seen occurrence, we capture a female chimera in the process of releasing her eggs. See those twin sacs coming out of her body? What will technology help us discover next?
