When it comes to the exploration of the seas, we have merely skimmed the surface. The ocean takes up about ⅔ of our planet, and yet we haven’t even discovered 5% of the world’s oceans. While the idea may be daunting, there is a whole other world below the surface. There are creatures that we have yet to discover. With every step into the ocean, you don’t know if you’ll step on some seaweed or a great white shark like Deep Blue! Or if you go deep enough, you might spot a pink see-through fantasia that will make you question what a sea cucumber actually is!
As we introduce to you ten incredible creatures that appeared from the ocean, keep in mind that your mind might be blown away. If your head was transparent like the barreleye, we could watch your mind being blown right there! In just this recent century, we’ve made incredible discoveries like the sunburst creature, which looks like it fell from the stars. For those of us who are less mature, you might get a good laugh over the pigbutt worm. The mantis shrimp has gone viral lately because not only is it rainbow colored, but it is one of the toughest sea creatures in the ocean. We can all relate to the poor little blobfish, especially on Mondays when we have to go back to work. Did you know that there are superheroes under the sea, and they wear capes? If you don’t believe us, then you’ll find the blanket octopus especially fascinating! If there was ever a “nope” creature, the sarcastic fringehead takes the prize. If something cute is more your style, then take the dumbo octopus as a consolation prize!
