allusive creatures in what is known as the mid-water of the deep-sea. >> reporter: compared to some of the ri creatures we are all familiar with like sharks and dolphins, how do these compare? >> the animals we are looking for in the mid water are little bit more of the squishy weird looking animals. >> reporter: they are simply otherworldly, floating in the dark and what is known as the oxygen minimum zone about 3000 feet below the surface and the robot travels through so-called marine snow with a lot of will poop in fish skills and micro plastic from humans. they have found here this vampire squid and rare and brightly colored jellyfish and also this and it is a transparent domed had with upward facing eyes and it has

been seen by humans less than 10 times. >> it looks like outer space down there and a lot of these things look like aliens. >> to be honest they are the aliens and we are the aliens coming down to look in on them. >> reporter: they let us into the control room where they remotely operate the underwater robot. and just a then they found this, jellyfish so rare it doesn't even have a name. for now they call it red x. >> we are waiting for it to show up in the collection. >> reporter: they extend the robot's arm and they catch the creature in this container. >> today we had a few good hits. >> reporter: they also collected this red paper lantern jellyfish and another with a name that would make dr. seuss jealous, the comb jelly. these underwater discoveries

night to feed in the cover of darkness. >> this is the largest migration on the planet and every night at sunset they come up to the surface and they migrate again at sunrise. >> if you made that move, it would be a equivalent of a 10k to get your breakfast and another one to get to bed. >> reporter: i am far too lazy for that. >> reporter: what they are doing is no joke. by feeding on plants and marine animals on the surface, scientists think they may be responsible for sequestering up to half the carbon dioxide absorbed by the ocean. >> it provides a biological conveyor belt and only when the conversation and the carbon dioxide gets into the sea stays there and stays out of the atmosphere. >> reporter: that comes with a cost. the oceans are becoming more acidic and rapidly warming making storms stronger and more deadly and it could also impact the ocean life now working overtime to protect our planet. >> we are trying to understand
