Exploring deep space where no man has gone before is fine but what about exploring the 95% of unexplored oceans? We're at it but just. Which means that there are still countless wonders below the surface just waiting to be discovered.

Here's what explorers found en-route to the world's deepest spot - The Mariana Trench - 11,000 meters under the surface!



















Here are some more alien like creatures....

The wonders of natural selection sure can sure look ugly!

I've enjoyed seeing images of deep sea critters since I was a kid looking in an old set of encyclopaedias. All these millions of years and life has nestled into every niche, nook and space available. With the deep sea fishes, there's some eerie type of sensation knowing that the cold, pitch darkness is full of razor-toothed predators; it's like a mugger's alley down there.

Cool OP and a refreshing change

Oh dear God, what were you thinking when you designed this little lot? At least you put them in the Mariana Trench.

Mind you there was a thread some time ago about bizarre creatures and one fish had human teeth, it was absolutely horrifying.

Great thread and very interesting.

Some nice critters.

95% of the ocean looks like the 5 % we have already seen, i agree though that there is still a lot to be seen.

You know what some of them eat? You. They invite us to dinner to meet them, all you have to do is go fishing, fall off the boat, drown and sink to the bottom…

This.......

What is the need for that type of teeth at such low levels..? Defensive posturing?

The food chain down there must be long and brutal for evolution to produce that.

I don't think I want to know what else lies beneath...

When I was a kid my mother said " Hollywood will never create aliens more terrifying than what lies at the bottom of our oceans."

How she knew this I have no idea.

Nice info!

I remeber that first one being called the "mother-in-law" fish.
Something has changed ; )

Wise person, your mother.

Do you think they taste good?

Because of its extreme depth, the Mariana Trench is cloaked in perpetual darkness and the temperature is just a few degrees above freezing. The water pressure at the bottom of the trench is a crushing eight tons per square inch—or about a thousand times the standard atmospheric pressure at sea level.

How do these fellows survive these bone crushing pressures in pitch black darkness in freezing temperatures? And then they say there are no alien civilizations in the universe except us because we live in 'perfect conditions'.

So the question is: Are perfect conditions needed for life to exist? If no, then the universe could be teeming with life!

Since they are mostly made of water the pressure doesn't really affect them as long as they stay there. When brought to the surface suddenly nasty things happen to them if they have swim bladders.

Darkness, well there are plenty of cave dwellers who live in lightless conditions.

The temperature? They don't freeze for the same reason the water doesn't.




And then they say there are no alien civilizations in the universe except us because we live in 'perfect conditions'.
Who are these "they" you speak of?

By the time you get to the bottom,being eaten will be the least of your problems.😃

I have to second Phage on this.

I don't believe ANYONE has stated that there are no other civilisations in the Universe.

That would be quite a preposterous statement.

No, Except for bioluminescence, they can't see each other in total darkness.

The jaws are large and razor sharper to better catch what they bump into.

Now I know why they are down there...looking for a mate requires total darkness!
