The Frilled Shark
Sharks are some of the scariest creatures on the planet, but frilled sharks… frilled sharks are downright terrifying. They have a wide and patchy distribution across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans but consider yourself lucky if you never see one of these in person.
These creatures have several different primitive features and they’re often referred to as a living fossil. They can be as big as 6’6 long, and they have an eel-like body with a dorsal, pelvic, and anal fins. They move like snakes when they capture their prey. They have large, flexible jaws that can swallow prey whole. They do have eyes, even though in this picture it might look like a horrifying blind creature coming straight at you with no regard for human life.
The stargazers are a family of perciform fish. They have eyes located on the top of their heads, and they’re super weird looking.
The fish are venomous, as they have two large venomous spines right behind their opercles and above their pectoral fins. They can also cause electric shocks. They have a single electric organ that consists of modified eye muscles.
Stargazers are a delicacy in some cultures, as the venom is surprisingly not poisonous when consumed by humans. The coolest thing about these fish is their ability to dig themselves into the dirt and camouflage themselves while waiting to attack. Because they can deliver both venom and electric shocks, they’ve been called “the meanest things in creation.”
Pemba Flying Fox
Yeah, this thing is real. The Pemba Flying Fox is a giant type of fruit bat that has a wingspan as big as the average woman… 5’3′! If one of these things is ever chasing you, don’t even bother running, just start praying!
Hopefully, they’re not under your bed.
