Scary creatures in the ocean and not just scary, some of them are also very dangerous and terrifying !
There is a whole lot to be afraid of in the depths of the seas and oceans where the sunlight barely reaches. Ocean waters are still quite unexplored and we are learning more and more from year to year. Here are some really scary creatures that live underwater.
Scientists are still researching and actively discovering what lies beneath the world`s oceans. The deepest known point is in the Pacific in the “Mariana Trench”, a section of earth that stretches more than 1,500 miles. Its lowest point is the “Challenger Deep section of the trench” where the ocean floor sits more than 36,000 feet below the sea level. That is Mount Everest height plus another 7,000 feet.
Here is a list of some scary creatures that live underwater !
This scary giant squid is still quite a mystery to scientists despite being the biggest invertebrate on the Earth. The largest of these scary giants ever found measured were 59 feet (18 meters) in length and weighed nearly a ton. In 2004 some researchers in Japan took the first images ever of a live giant squid.
2. Gulper Eel
The gulper eel is one of the most bizarre and scary looking creatures in the deep sea. Its most noticeable attribute is it`s large mouth. This enormous big mouth is much larger than its body. The mouth is loosely hinged, and can be opened wide enough to swallow an animal that is much larger than the eel itself. This eel is sometimes referred to as the pelican eel because of its resemblance . The gulper’s stomach can also stretch to accommodate some really large meals. This giant mouth gives the gulper eel its other common name of the “Umbrella Mouth Gulper Eel”.
