Sea creatures found on en.wikipedia.org
Hello fellow Marine Biologists! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more interesting sea creatures. Now, let’s go for a dive!
- Pacu (Colossoma macropomum) Size: Up to 3.5 ft Weight: Up to 88 pounds Habitat: South America
The Pacu is an incredibly creepy fish that’s related to the piranha. The fish has square human-like teeth and a slight overbite. Despite its unsettling appearance the Pacu only eats plant material. They can be found in pet shops, and are also known as “vegetarian piranha”.
- Spookfish (Macropinna microstoma) Size: Under 20 cm Habitat: 400-2,500 m deep
The Spookfish is a very strange creature that lives in the deep sea. It has large telescopic eyes and a long, slender body. It doesn’t have teeth, and its eyes help them see in the dark ocean.
