The Top Ten

1 Sea Pig Sea Pig Scotoplanes, commonly known as the sea pig, is a genus of deep-sea holothurian echinoderm of the family Elpidiidae, order Elasipodida.
2 Blobfish Blobfish A Blobfish is a pink, slimy looking sea creature that lives off the coast of New Zealand. Much like chickens, it sits on its eggs to warm them. They are critically endangered.

Usually called the ugliest animal in the world. It's also endangered - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

The blobfish. Its really ugly, but at the same time adorable - PeachyBlast

3 Goblin Shark Goblin Shark

Sometimes called the "living fossil". It's the only extant representative of the family Mitsukurinidae. This deep-sea shark is kinda scary-looking too, just look at those teeth! - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

4 Gulper Eel Gulper Eel

Also called the pelican eel, pelican gulper, or umbrella-mouth gulper. This eel-like fish has a mouth larger than it's own body. With that large mouth, it can swallow a prey bigger than it's size - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

5 Vampire Squid

It's Latin name is Vampyroteuthis Infernalis which means "Vampire squid from Hell". Despite it's name, it doesn't drink blood. A web of skin connects it's 8 arms, each arms lined with rows of fleshy spines - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

6 Fanfin Seadevil

It's a type of anglerfish. Like the name, it has fan-like fins. Unlike other anglerfish, this one doesn't have an escal bulb (a bio luminescent lure that comes out of the top of an anglerfish's head). I find this fish weird-looking and slightly...beautiful... - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

7 Dinochelus Ausubeli

It's a small lobster. It's claws have very different sizes. One claw is short, while the other one is way longer. Both claws have long teeth on the inner surfaces - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

8 Black Swallower

Also known as the great swallower. Like the gulper eel, this fish can swallow prey bigger than it's size - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

9 Pelagothuria Natatrix

It may look like a jellyfish, but it's actually a sea cucumber. It swims with it's mouth on top - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

10 Dragonfish

Awesome animal!

The Contenders

11 Theutidrodilus Theutidrodilus

Also known as the squidworm. This weird yet beautiful animal genus is closely related to the Swima genus - BlueFrostOfThunderClan
