Jellyfish-Like Creature Does His Best Batman Impersonation [Video]

It seems like they’re always finding weird and creepy stuff in the depths of the ocean, but finding Batman is a first. This creature was captured by a videographer from Neptune Canada during a cable route survey off of Vancouver Island. George Matsumoto, a ctenophore (comb jelly) expert at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Research Institute says it’s actually a lobate ctenophoreof the Lampocteis genus. It’s basically a jellyfish-like creature that moves with strips of cilia that circle their bodies, while looking like the Bat Signal.
