The Scariest Monsters of the Deep Sea

Giant isopods (Bathynomus giganteus) Giant isopods look like they might eat you in your sleep if given the chance, and they just might—if they could only catch you. Giant isopods live in the deep sea, where they catch what prey they can, including slow-moving sea cucumbers, sponges, and nematodes, but mostly scavenge the dead carcasses of fish, squid and whales.

The Pacific Blackdragon is a deep sea fish, that can be found up to depths of up to 3,300 ft. Female blackdragons are about two feet long and have fang like teeth and a long chin whisker. They are black on the outside, as well as on the inside to prevent light from swallowed bio-luminescent prey shining out. The males are small, about three inches in length, and brownish in color. They have no teeth, no chin barbel and no stomach, unable to eat.
