With eyes like that, sticking out of the water, this is something you really don’t want to walk into on the beach. These fish bury themselves into the sand and jump up to capture their prey when it swims by. The sand camouflages them and makes unsuspecting fish their lunch. In case that wasn’t enough, this thing can deliver lethal electric shocks!
5. Sarcastic Fringehead
This fish poses no harm to humans whatsoever unless you get easily offended by sarcasm. So what turns out to be problem for most people is actually this fish’s defense mechanism.This strange looking thing actually scares off predators by opening its large colorful mouth. When two territorial sarcastic Fringehead fish meet, they sort of end of fighting with their mouths almost like they’re kissing. They grow up to a foot long and live on the bottom of the western pacific, going about 240 feet deep
4. The Black Swallower
Imagine being able to eat a cheeseburger that was bigger than your own body size in one bite! This one here looks like he has a full stomach. This fish can swallow another fish that is larger than itself and looks like it has some type of siamese twin attached to it afterwards. This species of fish can be found mostly in the Northern Atlantic as well as off the coast of Washington and Oregon. The jaws are very flexible and consumes its prey miraculously. It’s believed that this fish catches it’s prey from behind. There was even a case where this fish swallowed another fish that was 4 and half times its own length! Unimaginable!
3. The Ultimate Challenge
Could you manage to swim past these sharks without getting eaten. Scuba diving in shark infested water can certainly be a risky job but dedicated researchers and marine biologists put their lives on the line in order to get up close to some of the most feared animals on the planet. One wrong move and they could become castaways at sea.
2. Stuck in the Cage
This species of shark is most likely the most feared, due to the amount of shear damage they’re capable of inflicting on people and other animals. This photo here was captured off the coast of Guadalupe Island, in Mexico. A dramatic scene took place when a great white shark enters the diving cage with a diver still in it! Miraculously, the diver still survives and wasn’t eaten! We imagine that will certainly be an even the diver doesn’t forget soon.
1. Sea Angel
What better way to hide from predators than being practically see through. These sea angels hover around in the freezing waters of the Arctic Ocean. They’re basically swimming sea slugs and they appear to be tiny little angels. They’re bodies are mostly transparent and only reach the size of a few inches. They mainly eat sea butterflies and feed only on other tiny sea creatures.
