Australia is a country with amazing wildlife.
Many have long since learned that Australia is a place where a lot of wild and sometimes scary animals, ranging from giant spiders to lizards and rodents, reports the Chronicle.info with reference on infoniac..
However, the ocean around the continent is also full of equally creepy and unusual creatures.
Recently, the Museum of Victoria in Australia was in the expedition, exploring the depths of the coast of the continent, and published a few photos of caught creatures, some of which can scare the unsuspecting viewer.
1. Brazilian glowing shark
It preys on large fish, whales, dolphins and the occasional unlucky swimmers.
The brittle stars who have no eyes and brain, are found throughout the world and there was more than 480 million years ago.
3. Fish “without a face”
For the first time this faceless fish found during the first world expedition of the “Challenger”. Through 140 years at a depth of 4 km, it was again found off the coast of Australia.
This marine worm likes to stay in the dark as if to scare him, he hides his long head inside.
5. Red chaunax
This solitary inhabitant of the waters usually hides in sand on the seabed, using the lure on its head to lure prey.
6. Blind Ochieng
It lives at a depth of 2,000 – 6,000 meters below the surface, without eyes or mouth.
This relative of the hermit crab is one of the most colorful creatures caught during the expedition.
Fish-drop is one of the most slippery and unusual sea creatures.
9. Coral polyp
This coral polyp is similar to the “Eye of Sauron”, and refers to the same group of marine animals that anemones and hard corals.
10. Sea spider
Sea spiders, actually, are not spiders. Their legs are thin tubes, and some of them can glow in the dark.
The researcher holds aerogrow, which is quite a surprised facial expression.
They are called vacuum cleaners of the ocean, as they use their tubular feet to suck the microorganisms from the mud.
These octopuses use their fins to get through the dark water off the coast of Australia.
14. Bioluminescent manacost
These inhabitants, living at a depth of 1,500 meters under the water, produce their own light to lure prey.
15. Ordinary chaunax
As Blowfish, these slaves can swell up to appear larger to predators.
16. Carnivorous crustaceans
Although he looks like a harmless shrimp, this crustacean eats everything she gets on the seabed.
These fish – spiders (Grideye Spiderfish) without eyes, instead using green-yellow light-sensitive plates, which find bioluminescent prey.
18. Glass sponge
Although it looks like a lump of garbage that you pulled from an old vacuum cleaner, this sponge has a mesh skeleton consisting of silicon fibers, which filter the water.
19. Carnivorous sponges
Despite its small size (5 to 15 cm) these sponges cling to the tiny crustaceans on your needle and slowly digest them.
Considering how many terrifying creatures inhabits the depths of the ocean, it is surprising to find such a tiny and nice creature.
