Crazy Fish From the Deep

Fishermen in northeastern Canada came up with a specimen that remained a mystery to them, until Nigel Hussey, a researcher with the Ocean Tracking Network, identified the mystery fish as a long-nosed chimaera.

An ancient fish that lives in depths up to 6000 feet, the fish has a mouth bristling wit teeth and a long sensory-filled snout that help the owner find prey in the dark abyss.

They can grow up to five feet long and have a very venomous dorsal spine. Check out the video taken by researchers from the Japan Agency for Marine Science and Technology. Video from a submersible shows the chimera gracefully flapping along.
