Dragon with massive teeth: the Deep Sea Dragonfish or Viperfish
The deep sea dragonfish or viper fish is an awesome looking creature from the middle depths of the ocean (this one comes from 600 metres or about 2000 feet deep). Also called the scaleless dragonfish, they are ferocious predators, with extremely large teeth compared to their body size. And they have one of nature's most amazing tricks to give them the edge over their prey (more below). There are several different species of dragonfish (one estimate is 67 species - all from the fish family known as Family Stomidae) and they are quite difficult to tell apart but this one is from the pacific depths of California and is likely Tactostoma macropus, the longfin dragonfish. Idiacanthus antrostomus is an Atlantic species that looks very similar - at least I think that's the case correct me if I'm wrong. They hunt with a bioluminescent barbel or lure. It is not glowing here but under the different lighting regimes I used - some of the darker images - you can see how much the lure stands out. Sadly fish like this do not survive long on the surface, mainly because of temperature differences and mechanical damage in the net rather than pressure problems I think. It was caught in a cod-end trawl and filmed in a special tank (a kreisal aquarium). But is great to be able to share another wonder of the oceans on YouTube. And their amazing trick? Unlike most other deep sea creatures which are sensitive to blue light - the dragonfish also produces a red light beam (see the organ to the rear of the eye) - it is also very sensitive to red light. Although red light does not travel very far underwater it allows them to see when other animals cannot and to sneak up on their prey - especially shrimps that glow in the red light. For more detail see: http://www.science-frontiers.com/sf101/sf101b06.htm and the work of Ron Douglas and Julian Partridge, http://blog.wellcomecollection.org/tag/ron-douglas/ ( these images were filmed with the help of Julian and Ron). Oh and this dragon is not big - about 20 cm or just under a foot!

Dragonfish the deep sea ferocious predator
Deep Sea Dragonfish (Grammatostomias flagellibarba) The deep sea dragonfish, sometimes known as the scaleless dragonfish, is a ferocious predator that inhabits the deep oceans of the world. Known scientifically as Grammatostomias flagellibarba, it has extremely large teeth compared to its body size. In spite of its gruesome appearance, its is a small fish, measuring only about 6 inches (about 15 centimeters) in length. There are several different species of dragonfish. All are very similar in appearance. The deep sea dragonfish is one of the many species of deep sea fish that can produce its own light through a chemical process known as bioluminescence. The light is produced by a special organ known as a photophore. It is believed that the fish can use these flashing lights in the dark waters to attract prey and even to signal potential mates. The dragonfish has a large head and mouth equipped with many sharp, fang-like teeth. It also has a long protrusion known as a barbel attached to its chin. This barbel is tipped with a light-producing photophore. The dragonfish also has photophores along the sides of its body. These light organs may be used to signal other dragonfish during mating. They may also serve to attract and disorient prey fishes from deep below. The dragonfish can use its light-producing barbel like a fishing lure. By flashing it on and off and waving it back and forth, it is thought that the dragonfish can attract the attention of its potential meal. Once an unsuspecting fish gets too close, it is snapped up in the dragonfish's powerful jaws. The large teeth of the dragonfish help it to grab its prey as it hunts in the dark waters of the deep sea. It will feed on small fish and crustaceans as well as anything else it can find. Since many of their prey also produce light themselves, the dragonfish has evolved special method of remaining hidden from predators after its meal. The walls of its stomach are black to keep the lights concealed while its meal is digested. Because they live in extremely deep waters, very little is known about the mating habits of the dragonfish. It is believed that they are external spawners, meaning that the female releases eggs into the water to be fertilized by the male. The eggs then float to the surface where they remain until hatching. Once the eggs hatch, the tiny larvae are left to fend for themselves until they can reach maturity. Once mature, they return to the deep ocean to spend the rest of their lives. Not much is known about the life span of the dragonfish. The deep sea dragonfish lives in deep ocean waters at depths of up to 5,000 feet (1,500 meters). Although dragonfish species are found in most oceans the world, the deep sea dragonfish is limited mainly to the North and Western Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Dragon Fish Facts The length of the dragon fish measures around 2 – 50 cm (0.8 – 20 inches), with averaging 15 cm. The largest dragon fish measures around 90 cm (35 inches) and is known as Scleropages formosus. These fish are normally found in the deep sea oceanic waters where there is absolute darkness. They visualize their prey with the help of glowing barbels. The viperfish is also adept to swallow larger prey due to the flexibility of its jaw hinges. They have photophores located at the back of the eye that acts like headlights for hunting out their prey. The dragon fish is the inhabitant of Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans. These species are found at a depth of about 1,500 meters. The dragon fish is known to migrate vertically whilst capturing its prey. These fish are capable to swallow almost anything that fits into their mouths; however, they are often found to eat larger prey including shrimp. There are few dragon fish that comes nearer to the water surface for hunting. The dragon fish is an oviparous species. The eggs of dragon fish have spherical yolk with the diameter measuring at 1.8 cm (0.7 inch). The dragon fish has large eyes and mouth together with the pointed head that looks like a torpedo.

5 EXTREMELY CREEPY Deep Sea Creatures
Here are 5 Extremely Creepy Deep Sea Creatures Click Here To Subscribe! http://bit.ly/EliteFacts List : 5. The Ningen This creature from the depths of the ocean may be just about the creepiest thing you could ever see. The reason for this, is that it looks just like a human even having strange limbs that resemble arms and legs. The name Ningen is actually human in Japanese. However, there is no need to panic and worry that the world will be taken over by strange alien sea creatures, because there has never been any official sightings of this little beastie and general opinion is that it’s just a freaky urban myth much like the mermaid. 4. Mantis Shrimp This rainbow hued little creature is not as nice as it looks. It is actually extremely clever and horribly dangerous. One of its main talents is being able to see colours that far surpass even the furthest imagination of humans. As well as, it is an efficient killing machine, it has two appendages at the front of its body which can lash out so powerfully that they cause the water surrounding the creature to reach boiling point! So, even the clever prey that have managed to avoid the physical attack will be rendered defenceless by the boiling water. 3. Pelican Eel Eel’s in general are quite creepy looking, but this one has taken it to another level. This slippery character is basically just a huge mouth with a tail attached. The mouth itself is absolutely terrifying, it unhinges so that its owner can catch prey that is twice its size. The chosen prey is then stored in a pouch within the lower jaw. However, the tail can be just as weird as it possesses a small light producing organ that is called a photophore and this gives off an eerie pink glow. 2. Humpback Anglerfish The female of this species most certainly has a licence to kill. She uses her feminine charm which comes in the form of a bioluminescent lure dangling over her forehead to draw in prey that she can destroy with her rows of ferocious teeth. 1. Predatory Tunicate This is basically a Venus Fly Trap that lives underwater. They are almost completely translucent and they stick themselves to the sea floor and wait patiently for a tasty meal to come along. Once an unsuspecting critter falls for the trap the creatures snap their hoods shut until they’ve had their fill.

Deep Sea Dragonfish
A Deep Sea Dragonfish, filmed by myself in its natural environment. There is very little video of this fish in its habitat, (generally below 2,000ft depth,) this could be one of the best videos of this species available. t We went down at night and where surprised to have such a close encounter with this fish especially as it was on our return to the surface and was seen a depth of around 1,000ft, which is much higher than their normal range. The video was taken from a submersible. it is rather short as the dragonfish swam away, we pursued it for a while before continuing our return to the surface. Absolutely amazing to see it, something few people have done. Thanks to Karl Stanley for taking me down! it was amazing (http://www.stanleysubmarines.com/)

Aristostomias scintillans
The deep-sea dragonfish Aristostomias scintillans has unusual bioluminescent organs producing red light under each eye. While most midwater species cannot see in this range of wavelength, this fish can see red. Researchers believe that Aristostomias scintillans uses its red bioluminescent organs as night vision goggles for hunting prey, and as a way for individuals of this species to find each other. Barbeled dragonfishes are a dominant group of predatory fishes that live mainly between 650 to 3,300 feet deep in the ocean’s mesopelagic zone, otherwise known as the twilight zone. Smithsonian scientist Dave Johnson says "The arsenal of specialized traits that barbeled dragonfishes have evolved as deep-sea predators—huge mouths with dagger-like teeth, distensible stomachs, snake like, black bodies with light producing organs and elaborate chin barbels with bioluminescent tissue—make them ferocious and voracious ambush predators, thus the name dragonfishes." This video was posted to accompany the following publication: Schnell NK, Johnson GD (2017) Evolution of a Functional Head Joint in Deep-Sea Fishes (Stomiidae). PLoS ONE 12(2): e0170224.

Honeycomb Dragonfish from Deep Sea - real or fake?
Unique film of the deep sea honeycomb scaly dragonfish, Stomias affinis, or Günther's boafish. A dragonfish of the Stomiidae fish family. Found worldwide, but in deep dark water, it is thought to live 1000metres (3,300ft) down in the day and then come up nearer the surface under darkness, with the nightly migration of sea creatures. These fish use glowing lures and have glowing light organs (called photophores) all down their sides. They can turn this bioluminescent light on and off and using a sensor near the eyes they can exactly match the surrounding illumination to camouflage themselves and ambush small prawns, fish or squid in their massive teeth. The details of a living creature is shown here for the first time, though first described by Victorian zoologist, Albert Gunther, in 1887, who was a famous zoologist at the Natural History Museum, London. In the 1870s he took part in the first global deep ocean expedition, a three year 'grand tour' aboard HMS Challenger, with a crew of 243 including many marine scientists, and recorded on a trawl to 450 fathoms (2700 feet), he discovered this new species of dragonfish. This specimen was collected and filmed off the coast of California in the deep sea trenches near San Clemente Island, in 2005. And ,yes, it is real!

Deep Sea Nightmares
FRILLED SHARK The frilled shark is a mysterious creature which lives in some of the deepest waters of our oceans. Not many people know about them, well, because they don’t come into human contact very often. FANGTOOTH Fangtooths are beryciform fish of the family Anoplogastridae that live in the deep sea. The name is from Greek anoplo meaning "unarmed" and gaster meaning "stomach". DEEP SEA ALIEN : GOBLIN SHARK Goblin sharks are a species of fish that usually live at the bottom of the ocean along continental shelves (or a continent's edges). These pink animals can grow 12 feet long and weigh up to 460 pounds. They have narrow snouts and fanglike teeth. Spotted mostly off the coast of Japan. HATCHET Marine hatchetfishes or deep-sea hatchetfishes are small deep-sea mesopelagic ray-finned fish of the stomiiform subfamily Sternoptychinae. They should not be confused with the freshwater hatchetfishes, which are not particularly closely related Teleostei in the characiform family Gasteropelecidae. ANGLER FISH Anglerfishes are fish of the teleost order Lophiiformes. They are bony fish named for their characteristic mode of predation, in which a fleshy growth from the fish's head (the esca or illicium) acts as a lure. DRAGON FISH The Deep-sea dragonfish is a member of the Stomiidae family. There are many genera and over two hundred different species altogether in the Stomiidae family. The most known about is the Barbeled Dragonfish. This dragonfish lives in the deep parts of the Atlantic Ocean beyond where any plant life grows or light reaches. HELICOPRION Helicoprion is a long-lived genus of extinct, shark-like eugeneodontid holocephalid fish. Almost all fossil specimens are of spirally arranged clusters of the individuals' teeth, called "tooth whorls"— the cartilaginous skull, spine, and other structural elements have not been preserved in the fossil record, leaving scientists to make educated guesses as to its anatomy and behavior.

Deep-sea Battle: Exploring Remote Pacific MPAs
Not for the faint of heart and definitely not something you see everyday! On March 27, 2017, during the final dive of the Discovering the Deep: Exploring Remote Pacific Marine Protected Areas expedition, scientists witnessed a fierce battle between a caridean shrimp (Heterocarpus) and a type of midwater dragonfish. During this impressive display of predatory behavior, the shrimp was observed impaling and consuming the dragonfish while the fish was still alive! Another example of how exploration can reveal things we would otherwise never know about. Deep-sea shrimp are typically observed as being scavengers, not hunters, and scientists wondered how this shrimp was even able to capture the fish.

Russian fisherman reveals Alien Creatures he caught from Deep Sea
Russian fisherman reveals his bizarre catches on Twitter & Becomes an Online HIT It can be easy to forget that an alien world lives right beneath us – the mysterious ecosystem of the deep ocean, where the creatures of your nightmares lurk far below the surface. But, the Twitter feed of one Russian fisherman could make you think twice before ever dipping your toes at the beach again. Murmansk-based Roman Fedortsov has revealed a trove of terrifying catches, from eight-legged arthropods to fish with dagger-like teeth. The fisherman works on a trawler based out of a port in northwest Russia, and began sharing his remarkable finds earlier this year, the Moscow Times reports. Along with his Twitter account, Fedortsov has also shared stunning images of his catches on Flickr. Among the many creatures brought to light is the frilled shark – an elusive eel-like shark with rows of terrifying teeth. The frilled shark is often called a living ‘relic’ due to its primitive features. The fisherman has also revealed photos of the bizarre chimaera, a fish commonly known as the ‘ghost shark.’ Chimaera are known for their winged fins and long, whip-like tails – and an image captured by Fedortsov reveals their haunting green eyes. But, these glow only when exposed to light. In the darkness of the sea, ghost sharks appear to have sunken, ‘dead’ eyes. Like sharks and rays, chimaeras have a skeleton made of cartilage. While he may be better versed in deep sea creatures than most people, some catches had even Fedortsov stumped. With one photo of a bizarre, alien-like creature with a massive jaw and sharp teeth, the fisherman wrote, ‘We’re still arguing about this one. What is it?’ On Twitter, many have chimed in with their thoughts, with some arguing that the specimen in question is a stoplight loosejaw, a deep-sea dragonfish from the genus Malacosteus. And, not all of the catches are fish. One picture reveals a massive orange ‘sea spider’ – a marine arthropod with long, spindly legs that’s roughly the size of a human hand. Creatures of a similar appearance were recently discovered in the Arctic and Southern Oceans, where they’ve been observed at a staggering leg-span of nearly 25 centimetres.

Terrifying Sea Creatures That Actually Exist
Top 10 scary underwater animals that you won't believe are real. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg Other Videos You Might Like Incredible Photos You Won’t Believe Are Real https://youtu.be/H4ROvjWaPdw Extreme Female Bodybuilding Transformations https://youtu.be/2afo6xqg70A Description: SyFy recently aired the third film in their so-bad-its-good “Sharknado” series, prompting some to wonder if airborne, tornado-based sharks could actually be real. Okay, so no one is really wondering that. Still, though, the ocean continues to represent a great unknown to us, providing home to countless species, many of which remain a mystery to humanity. The more we learn about what lurks deep below the surface, the more we realize still remains uncovered. With two-thirds of the Earth’s surface covered in water, it stands to reason that a great deal of that space remains unexplored. Of course, just because humankind hasn’t covered every iota of ground along the ocean floor, it doesn’t mean that those areas are uninhabited. All we know for sure is that the truly deepest depths of the world’s oceans continue to offer surprises, even as scientific technology becomes increasingly advanced. New species unlike any others known before are routinely discovered, with entirely new and alien biomes in extreme environments that no life had even been thought possible have challenged our very notions of what life is and how it has evolved. Amidst the cold darkness of a low-lying ocean area with depths that no sunlight can penetrate lies an alien world of incredibly rare and mysterious species. While many are simple, harmless omnivores, they share the ocean floor with some pretty unsettling forces. These ocean-based creatures – those that we know about, anyway – change everything we think we know about fish. Each one has at least one predominant feature that stands out as being unlike anything seen before. Think you know sharks? Well, how about one with a saw-like nose or a frilly, eel-like body. Think you’ve seen some big fish? How about a 17-metre long swimmer or a 900-pound squid or even a 5,000-pound behemoth sunfish? Lurking within the ocean are a number of deadly, threatening, vicious creatures that are naturally designed and programmed to hunt and stalk their prey. Thankfully, most of these monsters live at pressures that humans could never survive at – not that they would survive long down there, anyway. In recent years, Hollywood has sparked a fascination with zombies, aliens and other forces that exist beyond the realms of our planet and that are not steeped in reality. Despite that, some of the strangest and most terrifying creatures in the universe lie beneath the surface of bodies of water with which we are, at least partially, familiar. As we sit on a beach staring out at the natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean, we remain blissfully oblivious to all that lurks within. This list seeks to open the door to an entire world of deep sea activity, featuring a cast of creepy and spooky characters that few even know exist. These 10 fish, some of whom may seem to be borne out of your darkest nightmares, are all very real and may give you second thoughts the next time you foray into the ocean. And these are just the ones we know about… Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheRichest.org Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRichest_Com Instagram: http://instagram.com/therichest Featuring: Oarfish Black Dragonfish Diving Bell Spider Goliath Tiger Fish Colossal Squid Goblin Shark Pacu Fish Ocean Sunfish Basking Shark For more videos and articles visit: http://www.therichest.com/ TheRichest is the world's leading source of shocking and intriguing content surrounding celebrities, money, global events, society, pop culture, sports and much more.

5 STRANGE Deep Sea Creatures - Part 1?
Its pitch black, extremely cold, immensely pressurised, low in food and oxygen and insanely vast. I'm of course talking about the Deep Sea. To survive in inconceivably extreme environments like this, animals of the deep must be pretty unbelievable. They are. Mainly because these mysterious creatures have adapted in ways that will surely blow your mind away - for a multitude of reasons. At a depth of 1800 meters or more it’s the largest habitat on earth, so let’s explore 5 unbelievable creatures found there.

10 Creepy Sea Creatures You Didn't Know Existed
Did you know any of these amazing and scary deep sea creatures? It's hard to believe these bizarre animals exist. Subscribe: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg 'Hatchet Fish' footage by Filmic Art : www.filmicart.com For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] Description: There is a vast world below the ocean that we have yet to discover in its entirety. While we seem to know nearly everything about the land, the sea still leaves much to be desired. As you go down into the depths of the ocean, you’ll notice a lot will change. For one, you’ll begin to be immersed in darkness. Second, the pressure will change. So, the creatures that have been discovered deep in the oceanic depths are quite different biologically, and they can be quite terrifying to look at. But once we begin to understand them, we can start to learn more about our existence, and even come closer to curing diseases and solving some of the world’s most complex mysteries. However, the sea creatures that have been discovered recently have shown to be just downright creepy and terrifying. You probably recall the Angler Fish, especially if you’re seen the Disney movie, “Finding Nemo”. If you didn’t realize that this fish is the real deal, get ready for new additions to your nightmares. It wasn’t a work of fiction or some messed up fantasy of some Disney Imagineer. The fish that we see in this video is actually female, and the male is a small weakling, wandering the sea to find a female with her pheromones. The male then attaches itself to the female and becomes a parasite. Every part of the male merges with the female except for the testicles, which the female uses to impregnate herself. Jokes aside, this is quite a fascinating process despite how creepy it is. Similar to the angler fish is the Viper Fish, which has a natural extra attachment that illuminates in the darkness of the sea with the purpose of attracting prey. The blob fish is a creature that you wonder what God was smoking or shooting up when he decided to create the blob fish. This fish has no bones, and literally just hangs out on the ocean floor and hopes that food comes to its mouth. Whether you want to worship the blob fish for its epic level of laziness or wonder how in the world the species is still in existence with such an apathetic demeanor, it’s still creepy to look at. Then we have the goblin shark, which is pretty much like the underwater version of the alien from the movie “Alien” due to its protruding mouth. The goblin shark has a large snout and needle-like teeth that are sharp and deadly. For a completely random sea creature, we have the Christmas Tree Worms, which really look like tiny walking fir trees that come in different colors. The branches or hair-like appendages help them breathe as well as consume phytoplankton. Then we have the sea pig, which looks nothing like the pigs we have on land. But instead the sea pig is a multi-tubed foot sea creature that is closely related to the sea cucumber. It eats by pulling water and absorbing organic food. Quite innovative, even though it looks creepy. For more creepy sea creatures, check out the rest of the video for more.

Who Lives at the Bottom of the Bermuda Triangle?
There is one special place that simultaneously terrifies and has unexplainable pull: 300 ships gone missing, 75 aircrafts never found; you're right, that's all about the Bermuda Triangle. Few people are aware of what the life is like at the bottom of the Bermuda Triangle – are you ready to meet the most shocking and scary creatures ever? Dragonfish live at the staggering depth of 5 to 7 thousand feet. This fish looks quite terrifying, with its black coloring and the light it produces on its own. Unlike other deep-water inhabitants, dragonfish produces light in the infrared range while the blue and green range is what other fish stick to. Vampire Squid has the largest eyes in terms of proportions in the world and is born to live in the depth. These animals are also covered with photophores which distract predators and lure prey. The mouth of the gulper eel is loosely hinged which makes it extremely wide and big. In fact, the length of the jaw of the eel reaches one-fourth of the length of their body. Despite being the owner of an enormous mouth, the gulper eel has tiny teeth, and this means that it isn't supposed to prey on large animals. The Goblin Shark reaches 13 ft in size and is also called the Vampire Shark due to the fact that it avoids light at all cost. Due to this feature, you can see the shark in its natural habitat only if you go as deep as 890 to 4300 ft. Pharynx, a complex feeding apparatus that helps Eunice Aphroditois catch the prey, can turn inside out, not unlike glove fingers. It has strong and extremely sharp mandibles which can easily cut the prey in half due to the strength and speed of the worm's attack. These are just some of the creatures that lurk in the depth of the Bermuda Triangle. Who knows what other unbelievable horror-movie beasts we can meet there?

Nobody knows for sure what makes crafts disappear in this area. -Dragonfish looks quite terrifying, with its black coloring and the light it produces on its own in case of danger. -The Vampire Squid has is bright red eyes and crimson cloak that looks like webbing. In case of a threat, these creatures can invert their skin exposing their spines. -The pouch-like structure of the lower jaw allows the eel to deposit its prey there. Even the stomach of the eel can stretch so much that the creature can hold there a huge amount of food. -The Goblin Shark reaches 13 ft in size and is also called the Vampire Shark due to the fact that it avoids light at all cost. As soon as the prey appears in the vicinity, the jaw of the shark will elongate and grab it. -The worm buries itself in the seafloor with just a fraction of its body exposed. It has five antennae it uses to sense the prey.

Mariana Trench Creatures That Are Way Scarier Than Megalodon
What’s scarier than the prehistoric Megalodon that used to live in the Mariana Trench? The sharp-toothed, creepy-looking creatures that currently live there! While much of the Mariana Trench hasn’t been explored yet, what scientists have found so far is absolutely terrifying. Have you ever heard about the Zombie Worm or the Goblin Shark? Do you know that there is an octopus that swallows his prey whole? Or maybe you know anything about a fish with a transparent head? Watch to learn more about the creepy creatures that lie in the world’s deepest waters. But be warned: You may never want to swim in the ocean again. Other videos you might like: What If Megalodon Sharks Didn't Go Extinct? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh6pVbaEJTw& Why No Aquarium In the World Has a Great White Shark? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4lOjZvtVO8& 4 Tips on How to Stay Safe at Sea https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvfkv_7v99k& TIMESTAMPS: The Fangtooth 0:45 The Dumbo Octopus 2:15 The Barreleye Fish 3:06 The Seadevil Anglerfish 3:58 The Goblin Shark 4:52 The Deep-Sea Hatchetfish 5:48 The Zombie Worm 6:32 The Deep-Sea Dragonfish 7:13 The Frilled Shark 8:08 Liopleurodon 9:07 Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The Fangtooth is carnivorous and feeds on just about anything it can find that gets caught in its sharp-toothed mouth. These fish rely on their “contact chemoreception” to find prey. - The Dumbo Octopus is the deepest living octopus scientists know of, according to oceana.org. They are known as “umbrella octopuses” since their arms are connected by webbed skin. When they spread them apart, they look like an umbrella…a slimy, hungry, deep-sea umbrella. - You can see through the Barreleye Fish’s head! Some scientists believe that this transparent head lets the fish collect a bit more light in the dark depths of the sea, which gives them an advantage over other fish that hunt blindly. - The Seadevil Anglerfish has a fishing-rod type appendage on its forehead that has a glowing light attached to the end to attract animals. Once these animals come close enough to the light — BAM! They’re captured by the Seadevil’s massive jaws. - The Goblin Shark looks like a cross between a shark and a creature from your worst nightmare. These sharks boast a protruding sword-like snout with a jaw that juts out to match. Unlike other sharks that have more of a gray hue, this creepy thing looks not-so-pretty in pink. - There are over 40 species of hatchetfish that sport thin bodies covered in shiny scales. That’s why they often look metallic. These fish only grow to be around 6”, but they’re able to handle the pressure of the deep sea, living 5,000 ft below the surface! - Not quite. The Zombie Worm isn’t an undead creature of the deep sea; it is very much alive. It’s also known as the Bone Worm, and it can swallow bones of massive mammals like whales. - Along with some other creatures on this list, the Deep-Sea Dragonfish relies on its bioluminescent body parts to catch prey. It also uses its hanging appendage, which boasts a little red light on the end, coming out from its lower jaw. - Studying the Frilled Shark is like looking through a portal back to prehistoric times. That’s because scientists think that these eel-like sharks haven’t changed much since their oldest ancestors roamed the deep-sea waters, so they’re sometimes referred to as “living fossils.” - Scientists believe Liopleurodon thrived in this deep-sea trench because of its ability to swim long distances and its 4 paddle-like limbs. While they probably weren’t able to propel themselves toward prey like other animals of the area, they did manage to accelerate and attack very ruthlessly and efficiently.

13 Glowing ALIEN Fish From The Deep Sea
From Fluorescent Viperfish and Bioluminescent Catsharks to Glowing Anglerfish and Genetically Modified Glofish. These are 13 Glowing Fish. SUBSCRIBE for the latest videos: https://goo.gl/7xzjzR 13 GloFish Let’s start off this video about fish that glow, with GloFish! They are a patented and trademarked brand of genetically engineered fluorescent fish. The first fluorescent zebrafish were created at the National University of Singapore in 1999, by scientists trying to make a fish that would detect pollution by glowing in toxic waters. They combined the zebrafish embryo with genes that encode fluorescent proteins from jellyfish and sea coral. Yorktown Technologies, a company from Austin, Texas, bought the worldwide marketing rights to the fluorescent fish and in 2003, introduced the GloFish in the United States. It is the first and only genetically engineered animal to be publicly available and can only be found in the US. 12 Stoplight Loosejaw At number 12, we have the first naturally glowing fish on our list, the Stoplight Loosejaw. A type of barbeled dragonfish, it lives in the mesopelagic areas of all oceans. The mesopelagic zone is between 200 and 1000 metres below the surface of the water. Sunrays usually stop well before the 1 kilometre mark so creatures living here need to adapt to the darkness. Like our loosejaw, who lurks below the waters looking for zooplankton, with its huge mouth wide open, while using bioluminescence to look for Copepods, its favourite food. It is called a Stoplight Loosejaw because it has two big photophores, one red and one green and they look like the colors on a traffic stoplight. Due to the way light travels and dissipates in deep water, the red photophore allows it to see prey without being detected. They are also called rat-trap fish because of the unusual open structure of their jaws. 8 Cookiecutter Shark Moving on to the Cookiecutter Shark, or the Cigar Shark, an oceanic fish that likes to swim at depth of over 3 kilometres below the water. The name "cookiecutter shark" refers to its feeding habit of gouging round plugs, as if cut out with a cookie cutter, out of larger animals. Marks made by cookiecutter sharks have been found on a wide variety of marine mammals and fishes, as well as on submarines, undersea cables, and even human bodies. But the Cookiecutter Shark also glows in the dark, one of the most glowing of all fish, it’s bioluminescence persists up to 3 hours after being out of water. The photophores are strategically places on its underside to disrupt the light coming from above, confusing predators and hiding it’s real silhouette. 7 Lanternfish This method of camouflaging yourself with light is also used by the the Lantern Fish. A species of small, deep water fish, it is one of the most widely distributed fish. It is estimated that 65% of the oceans biomass are Lanternfish, with 246 species discovered so far. Small fish, they are between 2 and 30 centimetres long, although most of them stay well under 15 centimetres. They are masters of disguise, using their bioluminescence and counterillumination to confuse predators and mask themselves on the bottoms of the oceans. Thy also have gas bladders that confuse other fish that use echolocation or sonars. 2 Viperfish Next we take a closer look at the Viperfish. They are between 30 and 60 centimetres long and live in tropical and temperate waters and swim at great depths, 1500 metres below sea level during the day and down to 4000 metres during the night. They have snake like bodies and long, needle like teeth, and they are really ugly. They are predatory fish and feed on almost anything they gets their teeth into. The Viperfish has 3 types of photophores on its body, used mainly to attract prey. They have microscopic spheres all over their dorsal side, large spheres with pigment, reflector and lens, and finally, large, bell shaped organs grouped together along the dorsal surface. Although it may look like the viperfish is covered in scales, it is in fact covered by a thick, transparent coating of an unknown substance. 1 Anglerfish And at number one, probably the most famous and bizzare glowing fish, the Anglerfish. There are many types of Anglerfish, all over the globe, living at a variety of depths. But what all Anglerfish species have in common are their huge mouths full of razor sharp teeth and the esca, a fleshy growth on their heads, that houses light producing bacteria, and acts like bait for their prey, luring them straight into the fishs mouth. Anglerfish are a delicacy. Some Anglerfish species are a source of food. In North America, Europe and East-Asia, Goosefish are widely used in cooking and is often compared to a lobster tail in taste and texture. In Asia, especially in Korea and Japan, the liver of the Monkfish is considered a delicacy.

Deep Sea Starfish There are more than 2,000 known species of sea star, ranging from those that you find in rock pools to those that you’d see on a coral reef- but amongst the most bizarre ones that have been found are those that live deep below the waves. 9. Glass Finger This strange species of sea sponge that lives in deep waters are called Glass Fingers. Apart from looking like glass, their name actually comes from the way that their skeletons are formed. 8. Deep Sea Spider If you’re not too fond of spiders around your home, then these next creatures will show you how lucky you are to live on land! Spiders of epic proportions do live among us and grow to huge sizes of the coast of Antarctica. 7. Acorn Worm Acorn worms can live anywhere from the shoreline to over 3000 meters (10,000 ft) deep. They are very unusual creatures. There are actually only less than 100 known species of Acorn worm, and most varieties grow up to 1.5 feet long. 6. Barreleye Fish If you didn’t know any better, you might think this fish was some kind of aquatic robot used to spy on submarines during the cold war! The Pacific barreleye fish is an extraordinary creature that lives deep in the ocean’s waters. 5. Giant Isopod The Giant Isopod is another creepy creature that lives at the bottom of the sea. Related to pillbugs, it’s not actually a bug. It’s a carnivorous crustacean that crawls around the deep sea floor looking for food- from the remains of creatures that have fallen to the depths, or slow moving, living creatures like sea cucumbers and sponges, that it’s able to catch up to. 4. Dragon Fish The deep sea dragonfish, also called the Barbeled Dragonfish, is a family of fish that are found in the deepest parts of the ocean around the world. In all, there are nearly 300 different known species, each of which have their own unique characteristics. 3. Mariana Snailfish The ability for scientists to explore the deepest parts of the ocean has improved significantly in recent decades, which has led to a number of unmanned research missions to the deepest known place on Earth! 2. Sleeper Sharks Sleeper sharks are very rarely seen by ocean researchers. They are known to live in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans and grow to up to 23 feet (7 meters) long and weigh up to 1,958 pounds (888 kg). A discovery in 2016 completely changed the way these creatures are understood. 1. Devil Worm All of the other animals on this list live in the ocean, since they provide much more habitable environments than are available underground, and far more research has been done in the water because it’s easier to access.This final one, though is the exception.

The anglerfish: The original approach to deep-sea fishing
Deep-sea anglerfish are strange and elusive creatures that are very rarely observed in their natural habitat. Fewer than half a dozen have ever been captured on film or video by deep diving research vehicles. This little angler, about 9 cm long, is named Melanocetus. It is also known as the Black Seadevil and it lives in the deep dark waters of the Monterey Canyon. MBARI's ROV Doc Ricketts observed this anglerfish for the first time at 600 meters on a midwater research expedition in November 2014. We believe that this is the first video footage ever made of this species alive and at depth.

Deep Sea Monster The Dragon Fish
Check my other CHANNELS: YouTube.com/FaithfulTrigger Deep Sea Monster The Dragon Fish The Deep Sea Dragonfish, or Grammatostomias flagellibarba, is a ferocious predator in spite of its small size. It is one of many species known to inhabit the deep oceans of the world. This fish grows to about six inches in length. It has a large head and mouth equipped with many sharp, fang-like teeth. The dragonfish has a long barbel attached to its chin. This barbel is tipped with a light-producing organ known as a photophore. The dragonfish uses this organ like a fishing lure, flashing it on and off and waving it back and forth. Once an unsuspecting fish gets too close, it is snapped up in the dragonfish's powerful jaws. The dragonfish also has photophores along the sides of its body. These light organs may be used to signal other dragonfish during mating. They may also serve to attract and disorient prey fishes from deep below. The Dragonfish lives in deep ocean waters at depths of up to 5000 feet (1,500 meters). They are found in most tropical regions around the world.

One of the basking shark’s most distinguishable features is its massive cavernous jaws 7: Barbeled Dragonfish The Barbeled Dragonfish is the best known species of Deep-sea dragonfish, and it belongs to the Strombidae family. It lives in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean where light does not reach and plant life is absent. The Barbeled Dragonfish produce light through organs called photophores and their skeletons are adapted to life in the deep ocean. They usually live at depths of 4.920 to 13,000 feet 6: White Shark Café In an area located halfway between the Hawaii Islands and the Guadalupe Islands, male, female and juvenile white sharks gather during spring and winter. The reason for this behavior is still unknown. The area has a radius of around 160 miles and in 2002 researchers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute gave it the unofficial name of White Shark Café. The researchers had tracked the sharks to the area using satellite tracking tags. They had initially believed that the sharks travelled there for mating purposes. However, continuous study of the area revealed that juvenile sharks also travelled there and thus the true reason for this migration pattern 5: Heracleion Approximately 1.500 years ago the Ancient Egyptian city of Thonis, which the Greeks later named Heracleion, was engulfed by the Mediterranean Sea. It was once a prosperous port, according to 5th century BC Greek historian Herodotus, which had been visited by Helen of Troy and Paris, her Trojan lover. The legend says that the mythical hero Heracles, also known as Hercules, had once passed through the city as well. In his honor the Greeks renamed the city Heracleion. The city represents one of the greatest archeological discoveries of the 21st century. In 2001 a team lead by Frank Goddio, a French marine archaeologist, found the relics of the lost city under the waters of Aboukir Bay, approximately 20 miles north-east of Alexandria. Goddio’s team found numerous artifacts which indicated 4: The Vast and Dark Unknown According to National Geographic “There are more artifacts from human history at the bottom of the ocean than there are in all the museums on the planet combined.” The ocean has an average depth of around 12.400 feet. Since light can only penetrate approximately 330 feet, most of the ocean’s secrets are shrouded in darkness. So far only around five per cent of the ocean has been explored. There are around 1 million species of animals and plants that have been found 3: Abyssal Gigantism The largest known colossal squid specimen was discovered on the 22nd of February 2007. It weighed over one thousand pounds and measured a total length of around fifteen feet. Colossal squids also have the largest eyes in the animal kingdom, measuring up to eleven inches in diameter. They are different from giant squids because they also have sharp hooks on their limbs instead of only having suckers lined with small teeth. In terms of mass, giant squids are lighter than colossal squids, but they generally surpass them in length with the females of the species measuring up to 43 feet. Many researchers 2: Red Tide A red tide is associated with the explosion of an algae population called dinoflagellates resulting into what is commonly known as an ‘algal bloom’. Scientists sometimes refer to red tides as HABs or harmful algal blooms due to the fact that they are deadly for certain species of marine wildlife such as birds, fish and even manatees or other larger species. These microscopic algae sometimes reproduce in a cluster thus changing the color of the water in certain oceanic areas. The most common color is a rusty shade of red but it may also range from brown to yellow or pink to orange. Red tides are usually associated with three types of algae. Karena brevia is common in the Gulf of Mexico, Alexandrium fundyense may be found from New England to Canada on the Atlantic coastline and Alexandrium 1: Inexplicable Sounds Using a network sound surveillance systems called hydrophones, the USA National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has detected a series of sounds, which they cannot fully explain. One of the most famous sounds was captured in 1997 and was nicknamed ‘The Bloop’. It is one of the loudest ocean sounds ever captured. It was heard by multiple sensors over an area of approximately 3100 miles. Dr. Christopher Fox from the NOAA excluded the possibility that the sound was man-made.

Unknown Facts About The Dragon Fish-Deep Sea Creatures | The Animal Adventure |
Some Facts The dragon fish, (1) The Black Dragonfish might have inspired the creation of the character in Alien but is nothing as fearful or intimidating as the Alien. (2) The Black Dragonfish, Idiacanthus atlanticus, is comparatively a small fish which has a head that looks like the Alien but lives too deep in the ocean to be dangerous to humans. (3) The female grows to a length of around 40 cm while the male measures only 5 cm in length. There are many differences between the male and female of the species. (4) The Black Dragonfish is probably the most sexually dimorphic species. The females are dark and have stripes, whereas the males are brown in color and lack the stripes. (5) The fish doesn’t have scales like the other fishes. Hence it is highly slippery. (6) The females have canine teeth, pelvic fins, and The males don’t have these, nor do they have a digestive system. Their only purpose seems to be for reproduction. (7) The female Black Dragonfish does a daily vertical migration to the surface of the ocean at night and returning in the day. The males do not migrate. (8) The Black Dragonfish are found everywhere on the earth usually at a depth of around 2000 meters. (9) Like all the deep-sea fishes, this species also produces light from its body. (10) Unlike other fishes, this fish not only uses the light to attract preys but to see the preys and attack them. They can see their own light. (11) The fish produces light which is in the infrared range and hence cannot be seen by other animals or fishes. (12) The Black Dragonfish is covered with photopores in its lower and upper side of the body. These light up when the fish is disturbed. (13) This species of fish is the only one to have chlorophyll in its eyes. These pigments are only found in plants. (14) In the larval form, the fish has eyes which are attached to stalks as long as the body but later retreat into the skull as it metamorphizes into adults. (15) The fish feeds on planktons, marine invertebrates, insects, insect larvae, shrimps and squid. They are scavengers and so will feed on any flesh which is on the ocean floor or floating. (16) The Black Dragonfish has sharp teeth which it uses to scrape algae off the rocks and feed on them. (17) The barbell which also can light-up is used as a lure to attract prey. (18) The main predator of the Black Dragonfish is the Red Flounder fish which is seen at the bottom of the ocean. The only defense the fish has is the light it produces. It lights up all over the body to escape from the predator. (19) Not much is known about the reproduction patterns of the fish. It is believed that the female lays its eggs and the males fertilize them. The eggs float to the surface where they remain till hatching. (20) The larvae of the Black Dragonfish tend for themselves and return to the depth of the ocean when they are mature.

CRAZIEST Creatures Found In The Ocean
2/3 of marine life is undiscovered. The blobfish, goblin shark or fangtooth are some of the craziest creatures found in the ocean. SUBSCRIBE for the latest videos:[https://goo.gl/7xzjzR] Don't forget to CHECK OUT our latest upload: [https://goo.gl/LUB8Xw] 10. Rattail fish Starting at the top of our list of craziest creatures found in the ocean is the rattail fish, known for its large eyes and mouth and a rat-like tail responsible for its name. The Grenadier, as it is otherwise known, is a small fish that grows to a maximum length of 1.5 meters, with some smaller species growing up to 10 centimeters. This family is so large that it makes up to 15% of the sea’s animal population. Found in depth ranges of 200-7000 meters, these fish swim in schools, especially round nose grenadiers which spend the winter in shallow waters and the summer in the deep oceans. 9. Sea cucumbers Yes, you are absolutely right. This crazy sea creature looks exactly like cucumbers with their almost cylindrical shape and leathery skin. Coming at number nine, the sea cucumbers are small animals that grow within the range of 10-30 centimeters in length with very many species all across the world. Their length varies with different species, with some growing to lengths of 3 meters and the largest having volumes of up to 500 cubic centimeters. 8. Deep sea dragonfish At number 8, the dragon fish is indeed a strange creature of the sea, and TRULY a dragon of the deep sea, and its special characteristics explain it all. From its strange appearance and adaptations, the fish is able to survive in the deep seas of up to 1500-4500 meters, and in some cases 5000 meters below the water surface. At these depths, the pressure is crushing and the temperatures go up to -4 degree Celsius. Chances of survival are slim. For the species though, its special adaptations which include a minimal skeleton in its entire body, having jaws with which it uses to feed are enough for survival. 7. Black Scabbardfish Living in depths of up to 1700 meters, the Black Scabbardfish makes it to number 7 as one of the strangest creatures that lives in water. To begin with, this species has an elongated body with a snout that contains strong fang-like teeth that help it feed on crustaceans, cephalopods, teleost and mesopelagic fish. This shape is important for swift swimming in the sea which helps facilitate catching of prey or escape from a potential predator. 6. Fangtooth Pushing our list to number 6, the fangtooth stands unshaken and its appearance says it all. That is one weird creature found in the ocean. First of all, the fangtooths have large disproportionate fang-like teeth, just like their suggestive name, rooted in their large jaws. They are one of the strangest animals lurking below the sea, and their characteristic appearance is so distinctive. 5. The Marine Hatchetfish At number 5 in our list of craziest creatures found in the ocean we have the Marine Hatchetfish is one of the species of about 45 that exist in the world, among them the freshwater hatchetfish mostly kept in aquariums in some homes. Their name originates from their hatchet-like shape with very thin bodies that almost resemble the blade of a hatchet. 4. The Cookiecutter Shark Let's move on to the next crazy creature of the seas. From the oval green eyes to its long cigar-shaped body and a round snout, the cookiecutter is indisputably one of the most bizarre sea creatures in the entire world. Coming at number 4, this species is chocolate brown in color with a darker region around its neck that resembles a collar. 3. Ghost Shark Also known as chimeras, these crazy sea creatures are definitely a top 3 on our list due to their very bizarre appearance. Their name explains it all. The Ghost sharks are long soft-bodied fish that grow to lengths of 4 meters with exemptions of longer tails in some species. 2. Goblin Shark At number 2, the Goblin shark is probably the scariest fish you can ever come across. It's almost the craziest creature found in water. From its long blade-like snout to its nail-like teeth rooted in a protruding jaw, it’s truly a wonder of the sea. It can grow to lengths of 3 and 4 meters, with the larger ones going to lengths of 5.4- 6 meters and weighing up to 210 kilograms. 1. The Blobfish And finally, summing up our list is the fish that has been branded the ugliest in the world. The ugliest and now, the craziest creature found in the ocean: The Blobfish. Its popularity was propelled by the sad expression on its face and its almost unreactive nature to its environment. That was it for our list of craziest creatures found in the ocean.

Top 7 Terrifying Deep Sea Creatures
#7 Scaleless Black Dragonfish The scaleless black dragonfish is a bioluminescent fish that can be found at depths of 1,500 metres. Most of the body is without scales and luminescent organs run along the sides. One of their distinctive feature is the long protrusion on the chin known as a barbel, which is tipped with a light-producing photophore. In spite of the terrifying appearance, they are considered to be a small fish, measuring only about 15 centimeters in length. Scaleless black dragonfish feed on small fish and crustaceans, as well as anything else they can find in the bottom of the ocean. They can flash their light-producing bodies on and off, attracting the attention of potential prey. Once it is close enough, the dragonfish snaps its powerful jaws and use their teeth to grab the prey. #6 Grimpoteuthis (Dumbo Octopus) Grimpoteuthis are commonly nicknamed as “Dumbo octopuses”, in reference to how the ear-like fins on top of its head resembles the ears of Walt Disney’s flying elephant, Dumbo. These fins are used by the octopus to flap itself upward and the tentacles are used to move in any direction. Grimpoteuthis are also known as “umbrella octopus”, as they are able to float like an umbrella. This intriguing deep sea animal lives on the ocean floor at extreme depths of 3,000 to 3,960 metres. They grow up to 20 cm in length and have an average lifespan of about 3-5 years. # 5 Pacific Viperfish Pacific viperfish can be found from 200-500 metres below the ocean surface. Their fangs are hinged and rotate inward, keeping the prey from escaping. Once the prey is captured, the viperfish will swallow it whole without chewing and slowly digest it, allowing to go as many as 12 days between meals. Pacific viperfish also have light-producing organs called photophores, and uses this light to attract its prey. # 4 Black Swallower The black swallower is known for its ability to swallow fish larger than its own body. It can be found in a worldwide distribution in tropical and subtropical waters, up to depths of 2,743 metres. The body of the swallower is elongated with a distensible stomach, capable of swallowing prey over twice its length and 10 times its mass. The stomach tissues of the swallower can stretch into thin transparency to hold these large prey. Sometimes, however, if the prey is too large and cannot be digested quickly enough, gases from decomposition will cause the stomach to expand and burst, killing the swallower. # 3 Fanfin Anglerfish The Fanfish anglerfish or hairy anglerfish is distinguished from other anglerfish by the lack of the bioluminescent lure at the end of the dorsal spine, and by its long dorsal and anal fin rays. They have a small, spherical body with long protuberances, and long fin rays to sense movement in the water. # 2 Deep Sea Angler Deep-sea anglers are considered to be one of the best-known creatures of the deep sea. There are about 200 species of anglerfish found throughout the world and its most distinctive feature is the dorsal spine that protrudes above its mouth like a fishing pole. They lure their prey with a bioluminescent lure at the end of the dorsal spine, and use their teeth to hold any prey that is helplessly lured in by the glowing light. Anglerfish usually live about a mile below the surface where the water temperature is near freezing. Some anglerfish can grow up to 1 meters in length. 1 Hatchetfish There are about 45 species of hatchetfish that vary in size from one to six inches. They are most well known for their extremely thin bodies that resemble the blade of a hatchet and ability to create their own light through a process called bioluminescence. These special light-producing organs are known as photophores, which run along the length of the body. Scientists predict that they can adjust the intensity of their lights to make them nearly invisible from predators. Hatchetfish are found in most temperate waters around the world and at depths ranging from 180 to 1,370 meters.

16 Bizarre Creatures Discovered in the Mariana Trench
From unidentified floating objects, to the scariest predators in the deep seas; Here are 16 bizarre creatures discovered in the Mariana Trench Subscribe to Epic Wildlife http://goo.gl/6rzs5u Let's Connect -- http://www.epicadamwildlife.com/ -- http://www.facebook.com/epicadamwildlife -- http://www.twitter.com/epicwildlife -- http://gplus.to/epicwildlife Deep sea dragonfish Even though it’s a fish, the creature has the appearance of an eel. It has slippery slimy skin, and possesses no scales. But it does have a terrifying face with huge choppers that more than validate its scary name. They found in cold, dark waters some 6,000 feet below the surface 1828 m). It uses bioluminescent body parts to create a glow that is used for several purposes. It can be used to provide camouflage, or to communicate with others of its kind. The glow from its barbel (kind of like a whisker) dangles from its lower jaw and serves to attract prey, which mistake it for an easy dinner. Instead, the would-be predator becomes an easy meal for the dragonfish! Orb Jelly One of the strangest creatures ever seen was found in the Mariana Trench in 2016. In the picture, the marine animal looks like some sort of orb that’s radiating bolts of energy from its surface. Others think it looks more like a Christmas ornament! But experts have identified it as a jellyfish … and it was located more than 12,000 feet deep (3,700m) in the Mariana Trench. The shapes that appear like energy bolts are the creature’s tentacles. The bright yellow shapes might be the critter’s gonads. And the reddish color in the bell might be its radial canals. So researchers have identified its genus, but hadn’t officially assigned it a name. But they do suggest that it could represent a completely new species! Sea Devil Anglerfish The name is about as scary as the fish look. With its oddly shaped body and mouthful of razor teeth, they look like they could have swum up from the depths of hell. Their procreation is scary, too. The male will essentially fuse himself to the larger female until the two fish become one. He later serves to fertilize the female’s eggs at the right time. Did you know the creature’s jaws can open wide enough to swallow prey larger than itself? The Dumbo Octopus Maybe it’s fitting that the strange cephalopod is named for its resemblance to Walt Disney’s Dumbo, the flying elephant … because the creature kind of looks like a Disney creation. Its fins that appear like prominent ears inspired the nickname. But it's cartoonish appearance is enhanced by large eyes and an odd puckered mouth. They’re among the rarest octopuses, and the deepest dwelling member of their order. They’re known to live up to 23,000 feet below the surface. While they can camouflage themselves by changing color, the animals have a trait this is definitely un Disney-like: They eat their prey whole! Before getting to our number one creature, here’s an Honorable Mention … You likely would not expect to find Humans in the Mariana Trench, right? Without using Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs), there’s no way we could survive those crushing depths. But evidence of humans has been found there. Scientists say that extraordinary levels of pollution have been discovered more than 6 miles (10km) deep in the Trench. Along with plastic bags and tin cans littering the seafloor, evidence of high levels of banned industrial chemicals are contaminating marine life there. Amphipods (small prawn-like crustaceans) collected were found to have extremely high levels of toxic chemicals. Experts say that once the chemicals seep to the bottom of the trench, there's nowhere else it can go … and that leads to high levels of contamination. So it looks like there’s no area on the Earth remote enough to get away from ourselves! Fangtooth Fish -- They can live at extreme, icy depths of over 16,000 feet, some of the darkest parts of the ocean. With such a nightmarish appearance, it’s hard to believe the creature is only around six inches long, … and poses no known threat to humans. Looking at the picture, you can see how large the teeth are. In fact, those choppers are the largest teeth of any fish … proportionate to body size!
