Weird Creatures Of the Deep Sea
Some of the creepiest and most bizarre creatures can be found at the bottom of the famed Mariana Trench, located in the western Pacific Ocean at an incredible depth of 36,201 feet. Perhaps the weirdest is the telescope octopus, which cruises the trench at anywhere from 500 to 6,500 feet below the surface. The eyes are the first thing you notice on the octopus. They stick straight up through the sockets, which is how it got its name. Origins Explained features nine other strange inhabitants of the Mariana Trench.
