7 Scary Sea Creatures We Hope to Never Encounter

Frilled Shark: The frilled shark is commonly referred to be a "living fossil," and we understand why. Its features resemble those of a prehistoric eel. Its jaws include not one, not two, but twenty-five rows of curved, razor-sharp teeth. 

Deep-Sea Dragonfish: Little can survive in the ocean's darkest, deepest depths. The pressure is crushing, and the lack of light and oxygen makes survival incredibly difficult.

Pacific Viperfish: We find anything with long, needle-like fangs scary. The viperfish often sits motionless, deep beneath the surface. Like the dragonfish, its photophores attract unwary prey. When its lunch comes close enough, it strikes. 

Atlantic Wolffish: Do you detect a theme? Most of the terrifying deep-sea monsters are designed for rapid strikes and killings. There are no vegetarians on the ocean floor since there is virtually no flora. 

Fangtooth Fish: Fangs are creepy, especially when there are so many. The fangtooth fish resembles a much uglier piranha. The fangtooth has the biggest teeth of any marine animal in proportion to its size. 

Anglerfish: You might recognise this one from "Finding Nemo." Unfortunately, Pixar did not invent the anglerfish. It works exactly as shown in the film, enticing creatures with a bobbing bait, much like a fisherman. 

Black Swallower: The black swallower resembles a sea monster that consumed another sea monster. It's slim at first, but just until it eats dinner. Then, its stomach can grow up to ten times its original size.
