The Most Terrifying Creatures Found in Deep Ocean by Scientists

Recently, an international team of scientists went on the world’s first survey to explore marine biodiversity in the abyssal waters off the east coast of Australia. The abyssal zone is a layer of the ocean at depths of 13,000 to 20,000 ft (4,000 to 6,000 metres).

The temperature there is around 36 to 37 °F (2-3 °C) and it’s a very food-limited environment. Sending their equipment nearly 16,000 foot deep, they hauled over 100 different species aboard their vessel, the Investigator. Find out more!

  1. re: fun facts about Boas, et al. Boas/pythons should be shot on sight in the Everglades. I was born and raised in Florida, and have camped and hunted the ‘Glades most of my life (I’m 75) But now, there are are NO mammals left in there. As in NONE. ZERO. No rabbits. No otters. No deer. Not even a frog or toad. And when the migratory birds return to breed, they are eaten as well. Used to be, 20 years ago, one could drive down a dirt road at night and the sides of the canals would be lit up with reflections from 1000s of animals. Now? Nothing. Worse yet, the only animal left beside the damned snakes are gators. And they are in trouble, as the snakes are eating the young gators. Kill all the snakes and let’s see if we can restore natural wildlife to the ‘Glades.
