Silly googly eyes are often associated with arts and crafts or are a way of staring at someone with extreme affection. Essentially, the physical form is a pair of eyes used to imitate eyeballs. Do you remember gluing them on pictures and paper dolls in kindergarten? Well, the people behind the Deep Sea Fauna blog do.

They decided to apply the kindergarten art form to their photos of underwater creatures. The series of googly eyed sea-life is playful and imaginative. Some of the sea-life they chose to give added eyesight to are creatures like sea urchins, various types of sea-worms, jellyfish and octopi.

The googly eye aspect is just meant to bring attention to the site (which seems to be working well). The point of the page is to provide viewers with the latest cutting-edge marine science about the creatures featured.
