The Sun: Monster from Deep

CLAW blimey! This “monster” creepy-crawly emerged from the deep sea – and gave oil workers a fright.

The giant isopod, a type of aquatic bug related to WOODLICE, normally lives 8,500ft underwater. But this two-and-a-half-foot whopper clung to a submarine sent from an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

Prof Craig McClain, of North Carolina’s National Evolutionary Synthesis Centre, said: “Some are even bigger.”
