Watch this Video of a Monster of the deep: Fishermen in Thailand are baffled by bizarre eel-like fish with razor sharp teeth

The ogre fish, or sharp tooth-fish, has extremely sharp and very long teeth, and an appearance that only a mother could find cute 


. ⁠
This fierce-looking fish does not actually grow larger than the average adult human hand. It has dark skin and scales that provide camouflage in the dark depths of the ocean, helping it to catch prey (fish, shrimp and squid) and avoiding hungry predators (tuna and marlin). Its prominent lateral line system detects water movement and compensates for poor vision and low light conditions. He has only been seen eight times in the past 30 years of MBARI ROV expeditions.⁠ ⁠

The fangtooth, or ogrefish, has extra-long, sharp teeth and a face only a mother could love. 

This fierce-looking fish actually gets no bigger than the average adult human hand. The fangtooth is found in meso- and bathy-pelagic waters worldwide. Dark skin and scales provide camouflage in these dim ocean depths, assisting them with catching prey (fish, shrimp, and squid) and avoiding hungry predators (tuna and marlin). Their prominent lateral line system detects water movement and compensates for poor eyesight and low light conditions. The fangtooth has been spotted just eight times in the past 30 years of MBARI ROV expeditions.
