Explore Sharks, Underwater Life, and more!

This undated handout photo provided by NOAA shows a deep-chimaera, a boneless fish that is a distant evolutionary relative to modern day sharks taken by an unmanned submersible on NOAA's Okeanos Explorer in a 2010 in deep water off of Indonesia - this is so cool looking!

A deep-sea Chimaera. Chimaera’s are most closely related to sharks, although their evolutionary lineage branched off from sharks nearly 400 million years ago, and they have remained an isolated group ever since

Chondrichthyes: Holocephali (chimaeras, sometimes called ghost sharks, which are sometimes separated into their own sub-class).. Pretty strange looking creature.

A deep-sea chimaera—a cartilaginous fish related to sharks—seen by the Little Hercules in the Sulawesi Sea. Its snout is covered with tiny pores capable of detecting perturbations in electrical fields generated by living organisms. Image courtesy of NOAA

Zombie Fish (Just kidding I have no idea what this is)

A deep-sea lanternfish. I came across this image on another page that brought up the "Innsmouth Look." They're kind of ugly-cute.

From Red-lipped batfish to Blue Dragons, here are some of the craziest animals to walk (and swim) the planet

O nome deste organismo é esponja árvore ping-pong (Chondrocladia lampadiglobus). O nome e a aparência são engraçados, mas elas não dão mole. Vivem filtrando a água e caçando pequenos animais e não são apenas seres microscópicos, sendo uma das esponjas mais vorazes do planeta. E você achava que as esponjas não faziam nada de especial, né?

The aptly named Ping-pong tree sponge (Chondrocladia lampadiglobus) is a carnivorous sponge. Those ping-pong ball looking things are covered in tiny spicules which the sponge uses to catch tiny crustaceans.

SHARKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Down deep beneath the surface of the ocean there lives a gang of Sharks. These Sharks search and search for food until they are satisfied .Sharks are a Beautiful creature to look at but they can also be very dangerous if antagonized . The Deep

Mola mola

These gentle, but huge alien looking, fish are also called Ocean Sunfish because they will lazily fin at the surface on their sides, apparently resting under the radiant gaze of our nearest star.
