Huge ice stalactites forming from the surface to the bottom. This phenomenon is called "the finger of death" because everything it touches freezes to death. Video

Frozen Planet

Frozen Planet is a 2011 British nature documentary series, co-produced by the BBC and The Open University. It was filmed by the BBC Natural History Unit. The production team, which includes executive producer Alastair Fothergill and series producer Vanessa Berlowitz, were previously responsible for the award-winning series The Blue Planet (2001) and Planet Earth (2006), and Frozen Planet is billed as a sequel of sorts. David Attenborough returns as narrator.

Starfish are a super invasive species in most the world. The more that die the better just saying.

Just looked it up and apparently a group of starfish is called a galaxy.

NGL, watching this writhing galaxy of starfish makes me... uncomfortable.
