This is without doubt the freakiest fish I have ever seen! If you can beat it I'll prop you!
Look at its second set of jaws shoot out! It makes me glad I don't have kids... But you can bet your ass if I did I'd keep them out the water after seeing that!


Freaky shark!

It's not a fish, but this is kind of freaky and sad if it is real.

Personally, the things they pull out of the rivers in Africa and S.America freak me out worse for some reason.Maybe it's the murky water and the fact that it's inland...either way, I wouldn't cross the Congo at gunpoint with these swimming around...

Ichthyosis is totally real and is quite sad.The victims usually die quickly due to bacterial infections in the cracks of their skin (their skin has no elasticity and sheds 7-10 times a day).However, there is a man named Ryan Gonzalez who not only has survived to the age of 19 with this condition, but is now a triathlete!

Thanks for the heads up. Kind of a strange irony is that Ichthus is Greek for fish.


It's always good to know things, but this is one thing I would rather not know. Too late for that.

Squid are pretty freaky. I never knew it until I saw a show about the giant squid, but their tenticles have little hooks on them that can each rotate 360 degrees!!!

The angler fish is also cool looking.

Yeah, I've briefly seen one SCUBA diving. Thankfully they don't have a taste for human flesh.
