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!

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.
