The Top 10 Creepiest Deep Sea Creatures That You Probably Didn’t Know Existed

Here are 10 creepy sea creatures that I’ll bet you didn’t know existed. The horrifying depths of the ocean remains vastly unexplored. It seems the deeper down we submerge, the scarier and more horrifying the creatures that live therein are. From the giant squid, once thought to be nothing more than a myth, to bone eating worms, we bring you our picks for the top 10 creepiest sea creatures you didn’t know existed!

Each one of these deep sea creatures is literally like something out of a Sci-fi movie, it’s almost too bizarre to comprehend that animals like this actually exist, but they do. 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth’s water. Only in the last 4 to 5 decades have we began to start truly exploring the ocean’s depths in earnest, with better technology, the farther down will we be able to go and see for ourselves just what strange creatures actually inhabit the dark depths.

 Using Wikipedia, I will place hyperlinks so that you can read about each of the creatures mentioned in the video above.
