How Can These Disgustingly Scary Deep-Sea Creatures Even Exist?

When you swim in the ocean, do you ever wonder what’s lurking below the waves? You know there’s stuff down there. But exactly WHAT is the real question. Well after taking a gander, let me tell you one special fact.

Ignorance is bliss.

Because after seeing these 15 scary crazy sea creatures in action… I may never even take a bath again.

1.) Water Bear

These little micro-animals may be less than 1 mm long, but are the first animals that are known to survive the vacuum of space.

2.) Mola Mola

The largest bony fish, it can weight 5000 lbs.

3.) Red-Lipped Batfish

Wow, too much lipstick?

4.) Ribbon Eel

These actually change genders as they grow up!

5.) Pink See-Through Fantasia

What’s up with these transparent guy? Haven’t they heard of decorum?

6.) Squidworm

The 10 tentacle-like appendages on the squidworm’s head are longer than its whole body and are used to collect food from the water.

7.) Sarcastic Fringehead

8.) Barreleye

His transparent head shows you his brains!

9.) Blobfish

It was voted the world’s ugliest animal, any guess why?

10.) Goblin Shark

11.) Salp

These little guys eat all the carbon in the water, helping the planet.

12.) Bobbit Worm

Growing up to 10 feet in length, they can break a fish in half with the force of their blow.

13.) Comb Jellies

The rainbow of colors is not due to bioluminescence, but rather light scattered from the moving cilia used by the comb jellies to move through the water.

Marrus orthocanna

This is a colony animal made up of several individuals (called zooids) linked together by a common stem.

Atolla Jellyfish

These jellyfish look like a UFO and are pretty alien-like because, like most jellies, they do not have digestive, respiratory, circulatory, or central nervous systems.

Glass Squid

There are about 60 species of glass squids making them one of the largest families of squid.

Venus Flytrap Sea Anemone

This sea anemone is named after the venus flytrap because of the similar shape and they way it feeds by trapping food in it’s “mouth.”

Flamingo Tongue Snail

The spots you see are not actually on the shell, but are part of the snail’s mantle flesh which covers the shell. Many people collect the snails thinking they will have the spots.

Pompeii Worm

These worms thrive in the super hot water near hydrothermal vents and are one of the most heat-tolerant animals in the world.

Whoa. I wonder what the phobia name for a fear of sea creatures so scary that you’ll cringe at even turning on a faucet is. Something tells me it’s about to get a whole lot more used. I truly wonder how I’ll be able to get to sleep tonight.
