The scariest sea monsters

In the ocean, especially in its depths, inhabit amazing beings that we can’t even imagine. From beautiful creatures to sinister monsters, of which we find:

Japanese giant crab

It is also known as the “bottom spider crab”. It is a species of crustacean that, as the name implies, inhabits the depths of the Sea of Nipón. Its appearance and way of walking are somewhat creepy, as are its own weight, which exceeds 25 kg. But no where to say about the measurements of the length of its legs: more than 2 meters. It is one of the longest-lived animals, as it can live more than a whole century.

Giant isopod

It looks like an animated cartoon character or a louse with anabolics, but it’s not. It is the scientifically known as Bathynomus giganteus, one of the oldest inhabitants of the seabed, which today preserves its existence and reproduction, in a frozen environment in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean.


It is one of the strangest known and one of the most abundant in number, in all the oceans. It is a huge kind of squid, whose dimensions exceed 7 meters along. Scientists perceive it as a ghost, for its long, powerful, light-colored tentacles.

Giant Deep Octopus

This is the most giant octopus on the planet. On one occasion when one of these was found, which was also listed as the largest of the greats, it weighed 270 kilograms and exceeded 9 meters in length. It is classified in the ocpods and inhabits the North Pacific.

Colossal squid

According to the experts, it is the most terrifying of all creatures in the depths of the sea. It can reach 15 meters long and weigh 500 kilograms. The largest number of these colossals are said to be found in southern Africa, Antarctica and New Zealand.
