Most terrifying deep sea creatures

Goblin Shark
1. Not much is known about this deep sea dweller as only a few specimens have ever been caught by fishing boats, but those rare catches have been enough to earn it a fearsome reputation. With a prominent snout and retractable jaws its physical characteristics are worthy of its name. .....
Fangtooth
2. Although it has an intense sounding name (and for good reason considering the fact that itsteethare proportionately the largest of any fish in the ocean) the fangtooth is actually quite small and harmless to humans. Terrifyingbut harmless. .....
The Black Swallower
3. Also known as the great swallower, the capacity of this little monster to engulf and digest things significantly larger than itself should not be underestimated. In fact, it can consume prey over 10 times its own mass. .....
Viperfish
4. While during the day it stays in deep water, at night it has been known to venture into shallower territory and into the nets of deep sea fishermen. They dont survive very well in captivity, however, so not much is known about them, although their appearance certainly earns them a spot on this list. .....
Megamouth Shark
5. Since its discovery in 1976 this extremely rare species of deep water shark has rarely been seen by human eyes and as of yet there is still no consensus in the scientific community as to how to actually classify it. Its most distinctive feature as you probably guessed is its gaping mouth that it most likely uses to swallow plankton and small fish. .....
Blue Ringed Octopus
6. Although it may not be as physically imposing as some of the other creatures on this list, the blue ringed octopus is easily one of themost dangerous animalsin the ocean. Its venom is extremely potent and because there is no antivenin, it is certainly a good idea to steer clear. .....
Grenadier
7. One of the more abundant bottom dwellers, grenadiers have been estimated to make up about 15% of the deep sea population and found at depths of up 6km there are few other creatures that can survive in such hostile environments. .....
Barreleye
8. Also known as spook fish, these strange looking creatures are similar to hatchetfish in that they have two upward facing eyes to scan for prey. Their distinctive feature, however, is the transparent dome that encases them. .....
Hatchetfish
9. Not to be confused with the freshwater hatchetfish found in many home aquariums this species was named after the distinctive hatchet shape of its body. Living at extreme depths it has two tubular eyes that point upward enabling it to catch food falling from above. .....
Snaggletooth
10. There arent many ways to describe this deep sea critter that dont include the words very ugly. Like several other species on this list, due to the fact that it lives at such depths, its capable of producing its own light and uses this ability to hunt its prey. .....
Gulper Eel
11. Also known as the pelican eel, this is probably one of strangest looking creatures lurking in the deep. With an enormous mouth it is capable of swallowing things much, much larger than itself. .....
Anglerfish
12. Named after its hunting technique the anglerfish uses a fleshy growth protruding from the top of its head as a lure to attract its prey. .....
Dumbo Octopus
13. Named after the elephant in the Disney film, this octopus isnt necessarily as terrifying as the frill shark but its far too strange to not include on this list. .....
Pacific Blackdragon
14. This deep sea predator got its name for a reason. Because most of its prey are bioluminescent, their stomach is designed to prevent light from radiating through. .....
Amphipod
15. Although these tiny crustaceans are usually no longer than an inch, deep down on the floor of the Pacific Ocean, about 6 km beneath the waves, they can grow up to 1 foot in length. .....
Chimaera
16. Not to be confused with the Chimera of Greek mythology, these creatures are also known as ghost sharks, and although they used to reside throughout the worlds oceans, today they are mostly confined to deep water. .....
Stargazer
17. With both their eyes and mouth located on top of their head, these fish bury themselves in the sand and leap upwards to attack their prey as it swims by. Moreover many species are electric and capable of deliveringlethal shocks. .....
Giant Isopod
18. Unlike the other creatures on this list, the Isopod is permanently constrained to creeping along the bottom of the ocean, primarily the cold, dark waters of the North Atlantic and the Arctic Circle. .....
Coffinfish
19. Resembling a pink, spine covered balloon these deep sea hunters are something of a cross between pufferfish and anglerfish (#12). Although they lure their prey using a fleshy protrusion they are capable of puffing themselves up when threatened. .....
Blobfish
20. Primarily found in the deep water off of Australia and New Zealand the blobfish lives at depths of over 1200 meters. The pressure here is several dozen times higher than at the surface and as a result its body is little more than a gelatinous mass. .....
Giant Squid
21. Seldom seen by human eyes, the giant squid has for centuries been athing of legend. Dwelling deep beneath the waves its only real predator is the sperm whale. In fact, the two are famous for their deep sea battles and their carcasses are often times found bearing the marks of mortal combat on their bodies. .....
Big Red Jellyfish
22. This startlingly large jellyfish can grow to be over 1 meter in length and as you may have deduced from the fairly straightforward name, it carries a slight red coloration. Rather than tentacles this deep sea jellyfish uses a series of fleshy feeding arms to capture its prey. .....
Vampire Squid
23. With the largest eyes (proportionally speaking) of any animal in the world, this deep sea creature is born to live in the depths. And no, it doesnt suck blood, in fact its tentacles barely have suckers at all. The name actually comes from its intensely red eyes and cloak like webbing. .....
Frilled Shark
24. Termed a living fossil, this seldom seen shark inhabits the depths of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Scientists speculate that it captures its prey by bending its body and lunging forward like a snake while proceeding to swallow its victim whole. .....
Dragonfish
25. Although they are found at depths of nearly 2km, the Dragonfish actually starts its life at the surface of the ocean as a result of its egg being buoyant. Like many other deep sea creatures, it eventually becomes capable of producing its own light using a method known as bioluminescence after which it descends to the depths. One of its many light producing photophores can be found on a barbel attached to its lower jaw, which it most likely uses for hunting. .....
