Our Top 3 Spookiest Sea Creatures: #HappyHalloween
We introduced you to the sinister fangtooth in our Creature Feature series, but we couldn’t resist including it in this list of spooky sea creatures. The fangtooth has the largest teeth in the ocean relative to body size, which it uses to devour other deep-sea fish and squid. The largest two fangs of the lower jaw are so long that the species has evolved a pair of opposing sockets on either side of the brain to accommodate these fangs when its mouth is closed.
