I filmed the world’s oldest animal

Deep Sea NewsAccording to this article on Deep-Sea News, I unknowingly filmed the world’s oldest animal a year ago.

Sweeping silently along the silty slopes 1400ft under the Caribbean Sea off Roatan, Honduras, Karl Stanley piloted his deep diving submarine Idabel upon a writhing mass of brittle stars entangled around the brilliant golden lattice of gold coral. My meager five megapixel camera did its best to capture the alien bundle of deep sea life, oblivious to the fact that the gold coral I was filming is over 2000 years old.

Turn down the audio… I never edited this video, so the white noise of the submarine is a bit blown out.
