Newly Discovered Deep-Water Fishes Scary As Hell [Pics]
Marine biologists who are working off the coast of New Zealand have discovered a bunch of unknown fish species as well as some really rare ones. Granted they had to go more than a mile down but still these are some pretty scary looking fish.
These discoveries were made by New Zealand’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research from nets at varying depths of the Chatham Rise which is a part of a network of underwater plateaus, mountains, ridges, and canyons.
Here are some images courtesy of National Geographic of the fish that they found.
