Redditor Gwynzer works for a Sub-sea Survey Company, who made a horrifying discovery when they found Podzilla latched onto one of the ROVs, and assuming the reported length of Podzilla (a wee bit over 2.5 feet head to tail) to be accurate, it would very easily be the largest Giant Isopod ever discovered. Now your underwear may already be half way up your ass, and you may even be thinking in a nasally voice, But the largest known specimen of Bathynomus Giganteus is only 48cm (like 19 inches), that’s impossible! And to that sir or madam, I would respond with a quote from the wizard of wisdom, Justin from shitmydadsays‘s Dad: “Science and Mother Nature are in a marriage where Science always comes home to find Mother Nature blowing the neighbor” :
I work for a Sub-sea Survey Company, recently this beast came up attached to one of our ROVs. It measures a wee bit over 2.5 feet head to tail, and we expect it latched onto the ROV at roughly 8500ft depth. Unfortunately, the e-mail that these pictures were attached to came from a contractor, and the ship he was operating from (and therefore location) is unknown, so I can’t tell you what part of the Earth this beast was living.

Oh my god it’s hideous!
The people who strapped me to this chair and have my eyelids permanently peeled open are gonna have a field day when they see this, and to think I cried after watching that video of an old man getting savaged by a ferret with no teeth or claws. They’re starting me out slow, but I’m told the videos will be much scarier in the future. Yawn. Goodnight little droogies.
