Submitted by: emmajean89 8 years ago in Weird

Rare footage of the magnificent deep sea fish, that is a likely inspiration for the sea serpent myth.

Seeing it flap its tail like that makes me think that thing can really move under water.

Moafreak: Because "fish" is used collectively, but "fishes" is used especially referring to two or more kinds or species of fish. He was correct to use it.

I love how this guy, who I assume to be some type of marine biologist or other sealife expert, says "fishes".

Woodmore: How on earth did they catch the poor thing?!

For a currently unknown reason, when an Oarfish is going to die it seeks shallow waters as a final resting place. In particular at the USC Marine Biology research station on Catalina Island in California, a total of three had been spotted in subsequent years, the first two having already been dead, and the last having been caught and is now on display at the LA museum of natural history, i dun suggest going though cause the chemical`s they used to preserve the body took all of the colors out of it

I feel slightly annoyed by the Chinese dragon quote, but other than that, awesome.
I hope they get it back into the ocean.

We probably know more about our solar system than we do about the deepest sea fish and creatures of our own planet. o.O
