Viperfish


Viperfish

Few fish are more grotesque-looking than the viperfish. The viperfish grows to between 12 and 24 inches in length. Viperfish's teeth are so large in fact that they do not fit inside its mouth. The viper is thought to use these sharp teeth to impale its victims by swimming at them at high speeds. Vipers have a hinged skull, which can be rotated up for swallowing large prey.

Blobfish  Blob fish


Blobfish

Blobfish are found at depths where the pressure is several dozens of times higher than at sea level, which would likely make gas bladders inefficient. To remain buoyant, the flesh of the blobfish is primarily a gelatinous mass with a density slightly less than water; this allows the fish to float above the sea floor without expending energy on swimming.
