The Giant Oarfish is the world's largest known bony fish, up to 11 m (36 ft) long. They usually live at a depth of around 650 feet below but linger near the surface if sick or dying, this possibly being the origin of sea serpent tales.
The bowmouth guitarfish (Rhina ancylostoma), also called the shark ray or mud skate, is a species of ray and the sole member of the family Rhinidae. A rare fish, it is vulnerable to extinction for numerous reasons: fins for soup, bycatch, food, blast fishing, coral bleaching, siltation, and more.
Rare look at the stunning Barreleye with transparent head, a small deep-sea argentiniform fish comprising the family Opisthoproctidae. It's found in tropical-to-temperate waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. I would love to see this in person.
One in 2-5 million lobsters are blue. A genetic defect causes a blue lobster to produce an excessive amount of protein. The protein and a red carotenoid molecule known as astaxanthin, combine to form a blue complex known as crustacyanin, giving the lobster its blue color.
FRANK GEHRY A RARE "FISH" LAMP from an edition of four glass and silicone, with the original oak and glass base 77 5/8 x 19 3/4 x 17 1/2 in. (197.2 x 50.2 x 44.5 cm) with base 1990 produced by New City Editions, Venice, CA
The Oarfish is a rare, solitary, and giant denizen of the ocean depths (arguably larger than a Whale Shark. (The Oarfish,17m as opposed to the Whale Shark, 12.96m in the Guinness Book of World Records.)) and is a filter feeder, comfortable cruising at depths of 200 m. Mistakenly named for its prominent pectoral oars with which it was thought to 'row', it undulates serpentlike with its dorsal fins and has been seen orienting itself vertically. This is one of rare photo. Thanks for pinning!
