Here are the creepiest, crawliest, and down-right ickiest creatures ever to swim the depths of the oceans. So, if you need me I'll be right here in the shallow end of the kiddie pool. Happy swimming, everybody!
The Frilled Shark of Your Nightmares
Despite being one of the scariest damn sea creatures I've ever seen really isn't terribly harmful to humans. At it's worst japanese fisherman describe it as a "nuisance," still I wouldn't want to meet this guy in a dark sea-alley.
The Lion Jellyfish Is Monstrous
I don't like jello, or giggly things in general, so needless to say jellyfish and I don't get along. Then I find out that the Lion Jelly is 7 feet in diameter and has tentacles of 120 feet, well, I just pee my pants and hope that no one saw me.
The Blue-Ringed Octopus Will Leave You Paralyzed
Probably the cutest of the critters on this list, but it's on here for a reason. And, that reason is PURE TOXICITY. This little guy has enough poison in it to paralyze 26 people. TWENTY-SIX, so while you're going into respiratory arrest, your friend that was trying to help you just got bitten. No thank you.
The Gulper Eel Could Easily Fit You in It's Jaws
So, this guy isn't really an eel, it's a fish, and it probably couldn't swallow you whole. However, it could definitely fit your head in it's mouth. And, that's pretty creepy.
The Stargazer Is Watching You
These creepy jerks bury themselves in the seafloor watching and waiting for fish to pass overhead. "How can they do that," you ask? Well, these guys have eyes on the top of their noggin, then when a meal swims by they POISON AND/OR ELECTROCUTE IT. This is why you watch where you step.
Goblin Sharks Will Eat Your Soul
These deep sea sharks are known as "living fossils" and pretty much have the creepiest mouth I've ever seen. It's straight out of a Japanese horror movie. Sleep tight, dear readers.
