First of all, I love the ocean creatures. I’m not sure why, but sea life has always fascinated me, and deep-sea creatures have always been my favorites. The environment they live in is so extreme, and they tend to be FREAKY lookin’!

One of the few Oarfish ever seen surfaced at Santa Catalina Island, California on August 16th.

This is not a picture of the actual fish, but I wanted you to see what these things look like. No one really knows the limit, but these fish can get enormous.

Also, three fisherman found some arms and a tentacle of a giant squid floating near Santa Cruz Island. We don’t get giant squid developments all that often, so this is pretty cool.
