    Grenadiers: This large species has a rounded head and a mouth which faces forward to catch squid and fish that swim up off the sea floor. As in most other rattails, the males of this species have a special drum machine on their swim bladder that is used to attract females.

    So we've (allegedly) been to the Moon and to Mars, but guess what? We have barely begun to visit the depth of our vast oceans. In fact, less than 10% of the deep blue seas have been explored. The ocean contains 97% of our water and 99% of the living area. While we have identified 212,906 marine species, there are possibly 25 million more that we DON'T know about. Suddenly, the Loch Ness Monster doesn't seem so far-fetched.

Please, I have a love for the ocean and there is only one thing I want to do when I grow up, it is to study the marine life and protect all of the ocean's amazing animals, and if you didn't know, they do a lot for us, so do their animals. And you wouldn't believe how important the phytoplankton are to the ocean!

the deep ocean. Octopus legs look like roots of a tree...Kinda interesting that the function of the tentacles on those legs are similar to those of a root of tree.

This ridiculous looking fish is often ridiculed by sea lions. The sea lions can't really eat them due to their extremely tough skin. Instead, they bounce them back and forth like a volley ball. "Mom the sea lions used me as a frizbee again waaaahhhh" *ridiculous fish

Frogfishes, family Antennariidae, are a type of anglerfish in the order Lophiiformes. They are known as anglerfishes in Australia, where 'frogfish' refers to the Batrachoididae. Frogfishes are found in almost all tropical and subtropical oceans and seas around the world, the primary exception being the Mediterranean Sea.

The ocean has beautiful coral reef, fish and is the most peaceful place, we must also protect this environment from dumping.

    I agree. We must be so careful not to destroy these beautiful coral. They won't come back to us!!!

Nudibranch by Dermal Denticles via ferrebeekeeper: Nudibranchs are gastropod mollusks which live in the oceans worldwide from the polar regions to the tropics.

The endangered blobfish lives half a mile under the surface of the Pacific Ocean - making it rarely seen by humans.Scientists have warned that the miserable-looking fish faces extinction thanks to over-fishing by deep-sea trawlers - who dredge up the species along with other catches. Despite being inedible itself, the blobfish unluckily lives at the same depths as other more appetising ocean organisms, including crab and lobster.
