Australian deep sea creatures are the stuff of nightmaresScientists have delved to the bottom of Australia's eastern abyss, and what they found is more terrifying (and ridiculous-looking) than we could have imagined.
[MUSIC] Meet the faceless fish. It's got no eyes, and it's ugly as sin. It's just one of the terrifying creatures found by scientists exploring the abyss off the coast of Australia. The expedition of the RV Investigator led by Museums Victoria, Delve kilometers below the surface of the ocean to learn about the species within. Most of it was either gelatinous or this spiky lizard fish of your nightmares, but they also found adorable coffin fish and. And the famously ugly and cranky looking blob fish. And then there was this, known as the peanut worm, that's peanut. It's a deep sea worm with a head that retracts when threatened. Ironically enough it can reproduce a sexually. If that's not your speed there were also red spiny crabs, the terrifying cookie cutter shark, and giant anemone sucking sea spiders. Australia might be known for its strange wildlife but we're pretty sure we'll never sleep again. Just when we thought it was safe to go back in the water.
