Impressive and disturbing at the same time. The shots of Mr. Brandt transcribe a 'mummy effect' on these carcasses.

No, these animals are obviously millions of years old because this pseudo fossilization can't happen rapidly.   I'm sure if they run tests with carbon dating all the observers can be corrected.

How exactly are we supposed to "share" with Facebook if the link to FB comes up BEHIND this?  Can't get to the damn thing!

I find it beautiful that life has been given back to these animals after death in such a way as in these photos. Allowing the red color of the water in the background would've been a touch that I would've appreciated, but simple black-and-white has aided in bringing these animals to life that their now muted colors would have denied. Great lighting. I will have to look for this book now!

Only this fantastic magazine can bring us the most unusual,

wild, weird and extraordinary places, people and factuals ever

observed on our planet.

They are the eeriest photo's I have seen.  They look like something out of a horror movie.  They are rather fascinating.  Job well done.
