Scientists collected more than different species of sea creature on . This fish species previously unknown to science was discovered in. The head of the largest was the size of a Bullocks head and 3 ft. out of the water." (Note: even if it is a seal, this is an unknown creature.). Photos and gifs of deep sea creatures from one of the last relatively of previously unknown and poorly understood deepwater habitats.
It has transparent, gelatinous skin, no scales, and pigement-less eyes.
Advertisement Spider Crab Two crabs fighting, including a white spider crab, from the genus Rochinia, on the first-ever exploration of the outer edge of the volcanic Maug cone. Scientists hypothesized that they could be a species of sponge or possibly drifting algae. A brittle star can be seen tightly wrapped around the center. Advertisement Frog Fish The frog fisha Chaunax in the image above, is a type of angler fish.
Squatting on the sea floor, it draws its prey close to its enormous mouth by wiggling a lure that extends out from between its eyes.

The Clone Wars, we learn the true value of Dagobah. According to the spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn, Dagobah was one of the purest places in the galaxy. The Living Force thrived on Dagobah and therefore it was the best place where Yoda could learn from Qui-Gon Jinn how to preserve his consciousness after his physical death.
Yoda spent the last decades of his long life in solitude, only in the presence of many strange invertebrates, reptiles, and amphibians. Creepy and Crawly When Yoda first visits Dagobah near the end of the Clone Wars, several bogwings are curious witnesses of his arrival. The bogwing is a flying reptavian native to Dagobah.
Several types of of these territorial creatures live in the different layers of the ecosystem where they feed on small creatures and where they give birth during flight. It also appears that a certain species of pikobi, fast-moving and flightless reptavians, call Dagobah their home.
Pikobi have long pointed beaks which they use to spear their prey. Their web-like feet are adapted to live in swampy environments such as Dagobah, but they also live in the swamps of Naboo and in the jungles of Onderon. One particular dragonsnake was hungry enough to devour Artoo when the droid was swimming to the shore.
Dragonsnakes can also be found on Nal Hutta. Another vine snake — hiding in the X-wing — startles Luke when he is about to leave Dagobah to rescue Han and Leia. The reptilian sleen is a slow omnivorous swamp forager. It also eats insects and seeks out dark and damp environments. They are the largest group of creatures known to use this type of locomotion.
As their cilia wave, something magical happens — they refract light, producing a rainbow-like effect. Their diet includes larvae and small crustaceans like the bioluminescent krill you can see intact in this imageand on a good day, they can consume 10 times their body weight. Take those jagged, translucent, incredibly sharp teeth.

While most are relatively small, in some species, the females can grow to be three feet in length and weigh up to pounds. They also have a piece of dorsal spine that juts out above their mouths and acts as a built-in fishing rod.
A fleshy bit on the end glows thanks to bioluminescent bacteria living on it and acts as a lure, attracting crustaceans, fish and other prey. When their next meal is in striking distance, the anglerfish can open its mouth wide enough to devour something twice its size.
The strange beasts that live in solid rock deep underground
The males are much smaller and lack the fishing rod protrusion. They latch onto females with their teeth. Over time, the organisms can fuse together at the blood-vessel level, and the male gives up its internal organs beyond its testes.
In some species of anglerfish, one female can host six or more males — for life. Btw, anglerfish can live up to 24 years. With their tube-shaped bodies, they propel themselves through the twilight zone by sucking water in one end and pushing it out the other. As seawater moves through them, salps consume the phytoplankton particles floating in it, receiving a constant infusion of nutrition and energy.
Salps have a lifespan of a few months. They have two alternating generations — one of loners, and the next of aggregates, where individual salps are interlinked in complex chains that move in fascinating ways.
