    This one has been a long time in the making, I really hope you enjoy! I covered Deep Sea Gigantism in my first ever deep-sea film 2 years ago, and felt it needed a remake to do the topic justice. So sit back, relax, and prepare to immerse yourself in the wonders of the depths for half an hour. 😊

      Thank you for this incredibly fascinating video and for covering this very interesting topic in such depth! Also there is a mistake at 27:55, the length for the Giant Isopod says 40cm (15.7 ft), the foot measurement should be 1.3 ft.
      Again though, fantastic video! I'm going to have to binge your whole channel now because this video was so good lol.

      ​@Matt KeithIt's honestly so horrible, Greenland sharks tend to go blind because of parasites that burrow into their eyes. However, even though they are blind they still have heightened senses and can seek out food and sense movement.

    As a scuba diver you can literally feel the water pushing in around you. The water feels "thicker" making it, counter intuitively easier to push through. And that's only 100 feet down or three atmospheric pressures.

    When she wants to watch one of your videos, she asks for " The nice nature science man".

      I totally agree regarding the misinformation communicated on many YT documentaries. The casualness of the presentation of incorrect information on these shows leads to misinformed people who then believe they are properly educated when they're not.
      I'm a Science teacher with 40 yrs experience and it's a huge concern when people misinterpret Science and logic. Science is the foundation of how we progress and everyone should be very concerned about this ignorance of logic. What appears to be good videos leads to misunderstanding and over-simplification and this has become particularly evident regarding correct knowledge of the dynamics of Science leading to the pseudoscientific rubbish that many people readily accept today without questioning. Social media is largely responsible for this. This is particularly evident in understanding climate change, evolution and vaccination. When our leaders are also misinformed there is little hope for the masses they influence.

I started this channel when I was 9, 11 years ago, as a hobby, and to this day it remains first and foremost exactly that - a hobby!! It makes me so excited to get to share the wonders of wildlife with people who hold the same passion or have any amount of curiosity for the natural world. I never expected this level of love or this sort of a response, so seriously, thank you. You, and anybody who leaves supportive, warm comments, are the reasons I make these films and stay motivated. Have a truly wonderful day. You are an incredible person.

    Yes!!! Your videos re-ignited my childhood love for marine biology. When you touched on deep sea gigantism before, it opened my mind to how incredibly nature can “copy” itself to sustain life.
    It reminded me of how sunflowers are basically giant daisies… certain plants have leaf formations that are like the giant or mini versions of other plants, similar to how a mini version of a giant squid could be drifting far above his brethren, unknowingly.
    Nature has this way of exponentially growing or shrinking its genetic material like that (not sure what the actual term would be lol just started the video heheh 🤣🤥) in a fractal-like manner that just blows me away. All to sustain life and keep it thriving in its environment.
    TL;Dr These videos blow me away, thank you. ☺️

    Your old video on deep sea gigantism was already fantastic, but this is quite possibly some of the best content I've ever seen! I love the addition of adding in parts of "Hidden World of Islands" and "Giants of the Polar Deep" (the latter being probably my favorite video of yours so far). The sheer size difference between the average sea spiders and their polar region counterparts is still pretty insane to me. Thank you for making these videos! You've definitely been a massive inspiration for me to continue wanting and trying to pursue a career in marine biology.

    I am in love with these documentaries, you do a phenomenal job! Although I have noticed a few of your conversions from centimeters to inches or feet have been wrong in a few different videos. The one I saw in this video is the Giant Isopod; you have 40 cm being 15.7 ft long, when in reality that is about 1.3 ft long. I just wanted to point this out to you in case it went unnoticed when you edited the video. Keep up the fantastic job, the algorithm seems to like you recently so I know all the hard work will pay off!

    Just found your channel and I’m blown away?? Like your content is SO well made!!
    I’m learning about this (biodiversity, evolution, and climate change) in college right now. I’m an environmental science major and I love seeing people like you make great content informing people how important EVERY part of the global environment is.
    My focus is on the extinction of species and declining biodiversity in islands, it was so cool to hear you talk about them! They are so important!
    Definitely gained a subscriber!

      Your course sounds incredible, those are some truly interesting topics. Do you know what you’d like to go on to do after college, and beyond in terms of career?

    I love your channel so much that I’ve been binge watching all your videos for the last 3 days! This feels like a NatGeo documentaries to be honest. Very professional and your narration is so good! I have some topics that I can suggest for your upcoming videos, maybe some about thermohaline circulation, or upwelling and downwelling of nutrients, or maybe on different salinity levels across oceans and how it affect the biosphere around the area, or maybe about how life is different comparing to faster gaseous exchange on arctic regions vs warm waters. Looking forward to your next videos, love from Malaysia ❤

    This was amazing to watch! It's nice to see a new video from you even though you are probably really busy. The polar deep section is an especially nice treat for me. But it is equally saddening how that is one of the ecosystems most affected by climate change. We hardly know anything about these incredible creatures and rob ourselves of the chances to study them. So thank you for showing them to a wider audience. If people were more aware of their existence, there would probably be a bigger effort for conservation. You are doing a good deed, my friend. :)

      ​@Natural World FactsThat sounds epic, cant wait. I will give the other one a watch now. There has always been a lack of decent coverage of abyssal and deep benthos presuming the difficulty of access. Also great coverage of siphonophores which are my absolute favourite. Keep up the good work i have no doubt it will take you places if that's a path you want to pursue. I study Fire corals in the Red Sea, perhaps if you ever do anything in that area we could collab and/or i could supply some videos/info.

      It’ll be a follow-up to my hour-long Chemosynthetic oases film I did last year, exploring the non-chemosynthetic habitats. It’s here if you’re interested: kzclip.org/video/1LrcTa0dDmw/бейне.html

    Hey Natural World Facts Team :) I loved the video! I always really enjoy your content as a matter of fact.
    I would like to let you guys know about a typo though! During g the introduction of the Greenland Shark, the quick summary describes the sharks as growing to 7cm rather than 7m 😊 I briefly got really excited at the prospect of a tiny yet majestic shark, but then realized it was just a typo. Not sure how much trouble it is to make such a correction (I have never created any yt content before) but figured I'd share it with you guys anyways.
    Again, amazing footage and I absolutely love your narration style and the info you share! Thank you!

    That was such an awesome video I almost shed a tear at the end when you said all these creatures could be gone if the warm-up continues. I still may believe climate change is not inherently bad or good so there's no real reason to stop it, but these animals are so gorgeous, mysterious and ancient I just feel bad for myself for thinking like this. Your voice, music and clip selection are simply awesome, creates such a good atmosphere I was smiling for almost the entire video. And I really appreciate the overarching discussion on different scientific proposals. Of course, the reasons for gigantism are different, but they look so awesome :) Thank you, keep up the good work.
