Top 5 Rarest Marine Deep Sea Creatures

I know you have seen some of the most eye catching marine sea creatures, and that is in our previous post i aware. So now i wanna try something slightly different from before, which is to share the 5 of the rarest marine sea creatures, mostly from the deep sea if i should add. They lived on the bottom of the sea where you won't even dare to imagine even a bit, because it is mysterious, it is dark, and it is real horror. All we could think of when discussing about the marine sea creatures must be unique, mysterious, and probably scary, well... that is exactly what lies there. The sea is has the bigger portion than land on this planet earth, and it is wide and deep, very deep indeed, there is probably millions of species of marine sea creatures in there, from the tiniest to the largest one. I can't even say more things about them, let's just check them out.

Oarfish or should i call it the real sea dragon, are large, greatly elongated, pelagic Lampriform fishes comprising the small family Regalecidae. Found in all temperate to tropical oceans yet rarely seen, the oarfish family contains four species in two genera. One of these, the king of herrings (Regalecus glesne), is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest bony fish alive, at up to 17 metres (56 ft) in length. What an animal to start our amazing marine sea creatures story, right?

This marine sea creature mesmerizes its prey by flashing it, but not in the what's-under-that-trench-coat kind of way. In an actual, literal light-gets-in-your-eyes kind of way. By emitting flashes of light used to blind their prey, the Dana Octopus Squid successfully disorients, then captures them. 


Amphioxus

We're looking at a rare, fish-like marine sea creature known to marine scientists as amphioxus. Widely known for being not only faceless, but brainless, these small, elusive creatures are some of the most bizarre ocean-dwellers human have ever discovered.

The Frilled shark is one of the most rarest species of sharks in the world. With an eel like body and deadly typical shark jaws, the Frilled Shark is a perfect explanation for the famous mythical sea serpent.



The frilled shark is a 'Living fossil'. This is because it was long thought to be extinct and was known only through fossils. It was until 2007 that the world once again witnessed a living frilled shark, that must truly be the ultimate marine sea creature experience.

Special mention:


Loch Ness Monster

While the Scottish Highlands have a history of having things appear out of the mist (is Brigadoon humor still in, or is 60+ years too much time?), it is the The Loch Ness Monster, or "Nessie" as we've come to know her, that has become the most popular Scottish Highlands' mist-dweller. The story goes that in August of 1933, the Courier published an article stating that a man had witnessed what appeared to be a dragon ... or at least, the closest thing he had ever seen to a dragon. Years passed, and evidence proving Nessie's existence (including photographs, video and even sonar) mounted. Because of this evidence, The Loch Ness Monster has been neither confirmed nor denied, that said we could also state this then, this is the rarest marine sea creature, right?

I guess we all should agree and realize that it is most likely that we won't have a chance to see this rarest marine sea creatures with our own eyes, so to make it counts, at least we know how they look and how they lived, and of course to be sure that they marine sea creatures really exist.
