Note: These things are ancient and have survived every extinction event going back to - and including - the 'Great Dying', the Permian-Triassic extinction event, so I'd expect them to survive the current planetary extinction event too. There will be a few 'winners' and a huge number of 'losers' in regards to which species survive. These things are probably going to be winners. I expect to see more of these attacks as time goes on, as this seems like the kind of thing where if you see it once, you're going to see it again and again. They seem to like meat, so as all the OTHER life continues to die off in the oceans, they're going to have plenty of meat to devour, which will help them expand their populations...
