    10. Blanket Octopus
    The Blanket Octopus is a very special breed of octopus, for while most species of octopus have free-flowing tentacles, this one has its own security blanket! It has sheets of flesh that connect all of the tentacles together and when it wants to it will open its blanket like a cape like some sort of super hero, or dementor.

    9. Basket Star
    Starfish or sea stars aren’t exactly monstrous creatures, but their relative, the tangled mess known as the basket star, is nothing short of peculiar. This thing is gnarly! Literally!! When pictures of it went viral, people were trying to guess what it was. Was it a can of spray cheese? A tentacled alien?? All of its branches wriggle in all directions!!

    8. Bathysaurus
    This toothy monster is known as the world’s deepest living predator. It has the face of a lizard, with the body of an eel and many, many sharp needle-like teeth.
    Bathysaurus ferox, known less formally as the deepsea lizardfish, is a bottom-dwelling species that lives in tropical and subtropical waters worldwide.

    7. Bigfin Squid
    This is probably one of the most disturbing sea creatures I’ve ever seen! The lighting probably doesn’t help either! Doesn’t this thing look creepy??
    On November 11, 2007, a Shell oil company ROV captured a Magnapinna or bigfin squid on video at a depth of 2386 meters. Found lurking near their Perdido drilling platform, this thing is haunting. The Perdido oil platform is the deepest offshore drilling site in the world.

    6. False Killer Whale
    Pseudorca crassidens, more commonly known as the false killer whale, is a dolphin that favors tropical regions, but is found all throughout the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. It’s sometimes seen in coastal waters, but typically dwells in deeper environments, where it’s known to dive as far down as 6,561 feet (2,000 meters).

    5. Venus Fly-Trap Anemone
    This little guy from Little SHop of Horrors is actually a marine animal related to the jellyfish, but it looks -- and behaves -- a lot more like the Venus fly-trap plant, hence its unofficial name, the Venus fly-trap anemone. The venus fly-trap motion that the species displays is a defensive maneuver. It feeds on dead and decaying matter with its tentacles outstretched, using special stinging cells called nematocysts, which have venom-injecting, microscopic harpoons.

    4. Acorn Worm
    Want to see an 8 foot worm?? Acorn worms (Enteropneusta) are marine invertebrates consisting of 111 known species and several families. A more recently-discovered family of acorn worms, Torquaratoridae, seems to only live in the deep sea. Previously, scientists believed that all acorn worm species lived in sediment on the seabed.

    3. A New Killer Whale Species
    Last year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced that scientists had observed a legendary killer whale species, known simply as “Type D,” in the wild. These peculiar orcas, who have noticeably smaller eye patches than the killer whales people are used to seeing, were first filmed in 1955, when 17 of them became stranded on a New Zealand beach.

    2. Sea Spider
    Sea spiders, also called Pantopoda are arthropods. There are over 1,300 known species, and they inhabit many different marine habitats throughout the world. While most species live in shallow waters, sea spiders are known to live at depths of up to 23,000 feet (7,000 meters).

    1. Gulper Eel
    Also known as the pelican eel, the gulper eel (Eurypharynx pelecanoides) is a deep-sea species that lives in temperate and tropical waters up to 6,000 feet (1,829 meters) below the surface, and that humans rarely observe or encounter. It’s incredibly fragile when removed from its high-pressure habitat, so we typically have to enter the gulper eel’s environment in order to see one.
