Here’s a scary thought: to this day, humans have only been able to explore 5% of the world’s oceans. This means that we obviously have no idea what kind of creatures lurk in the depths of the sea, opening up a world of terrifying possibilities. From the Vampire Squid to the deadly Stargazer and the ghost-like Cusk, in this video, we’re taking a look at 10 sea monsters scarier than sharks that will make you never want to go to the beach ever again.
Like sharks, stingrays belong to a class of animals called elasmobranchs, which are characterized by their boneless skeletons made of cartilage — the same semi-flexible protein that gives shape to human ears. The stingray’s flat body allows it to sit on the bottom of the ocean, river or lake, camouflaging itself to predators swimming above as it hunts its prey on the floor. Its eyes sit on the top of its body, while its mouth is on the bottom. Stingrays have tails which often have a serrated, toxin-filled barb. If a stingray feels threatened, it can lift its barbed tail upward and injure potential predators.
Sharks and whales might be some of the biggest monsters in the ocean, but the Stonefish definitely takes the cake when it comes to danger. Known as one of the deadliest fish in the ocean, chances are that you probably won’t even know when you come face-to-face with this sea monster… until it’s way too late.
The Stonefish – with its spikey, rock-like skin – is great at camouflaging itself in the depths of the ocean. This helps the fish attack its prey effortlessly. The Stonefish has a total of 13 venomous spines along its back. When the Stonefish stings a human being, they only have a few hours to try and save themselves before the poison ultimately ends up taking their life.
The Proboscis Worm
Some people believe that the Proboscis Worm might be related to some extraterrestrial species because there are no other species on earth that comes close to the horrors of this sea monster. The creepy yet still fascinating Probosci’s worm might seem harmless but don’t be fooled, because these worms can grow up to two meters and destroy everything in their wake.
But, how does a worm do that? Well, the Proboscis Worm has an internal structure that it ejects through its mouth to hunt its prey and keep its predators away. This unique muscular structure helps the Proboscis worm is what earns the Proboscis the nickname of ‘The Alien Worm’ because of how unusual the whole thing looks when it’s being ejected.
