5 Creepy Deep Sea Creatures You Didn't Know Existed!
Disgusting, weird, freaky, gross, what the Ffffff! Oh, my bad! No, these are really just lovely examples of what mother nature has to offer us inside the deep sea. Like seriously, they look like somerthing put in this world to decorate the oceans... No offense intended to any of these sea creatures about to be shown, but either way, they are kinda creepy as hell! With this being said, here are 5 Creepy Sea Creatures You Didn't Know Exist! Lets... Begin!
1. Stygiomedusa Gigantea
These jellies may not have tentacles but instead they posses five billowing “arms” that can grow to more than 6 meters (whch is 20 ft) in length. These arms are lethal, helping the creature capture and digest its prey. They are are lined with microchannels carrying gastric enzymes and nutrients to and from the rest of the body so that digestion can start immediately. No doubr, this makes the Gigantea petrifying indeed!
2. The Toothed Seadevil
The 13-centimeter female “needlebeard” or “netbeard” Seadevil has a very unique set of hunting gear. Her teeth are set up in a mess, shooting out at all angles inside and outside her mouth ready to entangle prey and deliver them to her esophagus. Each tooth can move on its own and has a tiny hook at its tip. And if that was not creepy enough, the male Seadevil scents out his mate via his large sinuses (synuhses), attaches to her skin with his teeth, and spends the rest of his life feeding off her blood.... Oh my goodness....
3. The Giant Ostracod
This thing looks like a fly’s eyes got smashed together and turned inside out around its body. Yeah, gross. In fact this little Ostracod, aka “seed or clam shrimp”, is the size of a grain of sand (not a giant at all) and spends most of its life simply taking in food and water through the slot in its bubble casing. It’s larger cousin is called Gigantocypris because it can grow to the size of a grape. Those large eyes are actually concave mirrors which scan the waters for tiny prey as the small shrimp rotates through the water. Still ...pretty damn freaky.
This neon, fuzzy worm is a species of jellyfish called a siphonophore. Each of its many parts is actually an individual creature. Together, this “colony” forms one, single organism. Its swimming polyps propel the whole organism through the water. The stinging polyps use venom both as a defensive mechanism and for catching prey while the feeding polyps lure and pull in paralyzed tiny sea creatures. If that’s not enough, these guys can grow up to 40 meters ( which is 131 ft.) long. Yikes.
5. The Predatory Tunicate
Given that Tunicates, or “sea squirts,”are situated motionless along the sea floor, it is difficult to believe that they start out like us as chordates. But whereas our notochord develops into a spine, the Tunicate slowly absorbs its notochord as well as its brain, then they sit as translucent bags feeding on filtered plankton. A couple carnivorous species have been discovered, such as the Megalodicopia hians, with a much larger mouth .These creatures basically just sit around, and do nothing but eating. Sounds like a few humans we know....
