7 Real (And Horrible) Sea Creatures These People Discovered Will Give You Chills

The ocean may be “majestic,” but these discoveries? They make me want to stay on dry land. Creepy. The first picture is my absolute worst nightmare. I have actual nightmares about creepy crazy horrible sea creatures all the time. It is so sad what humans have done to this world and its ecosystems I truly believe some are genetic mutatons, from nuclear waste etc. or even genetic experiments of scientists.

Sloane’s Viperfish

Sloane’s viperfish, Chauliodus sloani, is a dragonfish[disambiguation needed of the genus Chauliodus, found in all tropical and subtropical oceans, at depths down to 2,500 m. Their length is between 20 and 35 cm.

As a species, Sloane’s viperfish holds the world record for largest teeth relative to head size in a fish. It has teeth so large that it must open its mouth to make the jaws vertical before it can swallow prey. When the mouth is closed, the teeth overlap the jaws. It eats large prey by lowering the internal skeleton of the gills, allowing the prey to pass into the throat without interference. It can impale prey on the teeth by swimming at them with the first vertebra behind the head acting as a shock absorber. Sloan’s viperfish is approximately 28 cm (11 in) long. Its head is about 2 cm (0.8 in) and its teeth are just over half this length.
