The ocean covers 71% of the Earth’s surface and contains 97% of our water. What how much do we know about the big blue world? Forget outer space! Let’s take a look at all the alien-like creatures on our planet!

7. One Frightening Fish
Look into those eyes and tell us it doesn’t feel like you’re staring into the soulless gaze of a ghost. Spookfish, better known as ghost sharks or chimeras, live on the ocean floors of temperate waters, which go as far down 8,500 feet or 2,600 meters deep. Chimeras are distinct with their round heads and single gill. Their closest living relatives are sharks. However, chimeras don’t have teeth and instead have 3 big grinding tooth plates.
6. Those That Eat Stars
Star eaters or snaggletooths are little creatures that grow no more than a few inches. Currently, there are 48 recognized species in this genus. Short barbels hang from their jaws which attract even smaller prey into their vicinity. Their teeth are thin and curved, so once that smaller animal comes into proximity, it’s pretty much over for them.
5. Look Into Their Minds
The barreleye is a type of spookfish named for their barrel-shaped, telescoping eyes. These eyes protrude from their head and are enclosed inside a large, transparent dome as if you’re looking right into their bodies. Something else strange is that their organs along their bellies glow! Barreleye fish inhabit the Indian, Pacific, and Atlantic oceans.
4. Huge Water Bugs
Anyone scared of insects would run away screaming if they ever encountered giant isopods. There are nearly 20 species of these critters that live in the colder waters of the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic. Their size is the result of deep-sea gigantism, making them appear like you’re looking at a bug under a microscope. All isopods possess this segmented exoskeleton and seven pairs of jointed limbs. You won’t find them crawling all over the place since isopods are restricted to “benthic regions” which is on, in, or near the seabed.
3. Play This Coral
Coral comes in all different shapes and sizes. Sometimes they’re lumpy. Sometimes they have long limbs. The harp coral looks…like a harp! Also known as the lyre coral, this sponge is a carnivorous species and was discovered in 2012! A group of scientists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute found the harp sponge off the coast of California at depths of 10,800 to 11,500 feet or 3,3000 to 3,5000 meters. Usually, sponges feed on bacteria and microscopic organisms. However, the harp sponge eats bigger animals like crustaceans, using velcro-like hooks to snag onto prey. Once they catch food, their digestive membranes engulf it and break it down to be absorbed through the sponge’s pores.
2. Goblin Of The Deep
Experts call this beast the “living fossil” because its lineage went back 125 million years ago and it remains the only representative from the family of sharks known as Mitsukurinidae. Goblin sharks are named for their pink-flesh, elongated snout, and spiky teeth, making them appear like a monster from fairytales. They were first described in 1898 after a specimen was caught in Sagami Bay, Japan.
