These Creatures Are Not Extra-Terrestrials. They’re Swimming in the Ocean Right Now.

According to researchers and scientists, only 5-7 percent of the ocean floor has been mapped and explored and only 0.5 percent of the ocean itself. In other words, 95.5 percent of the ocean is unexplored!

The ocean remains a mysterious place with many species that are yet to be found in the deepest parts of the ocean. The following weird fish species are only some that have been discovered in our oceans and they are as alien-looking as anything you could find anywhere else.
