It's an oarfish. Grow the f*ck up and read a book.

There used to be (maybe still is) an oarfish preserved in a display case at the natural history museum in LA.  When I was a kid I loved looking at it--it was horrifying and fascinating all at once.

Man...I wish I could go back and be a kid visiting the museum again.

Sorry, but the Candiru is the fish of nightmares...

Nope.  Oar fish is no sea monster.

That title belongs to the Bobbit Worm.

Terror begins at 0:40.
You may begin rethinking your scuba trips.

Yes this is dog: Farking Lurker: Forget the fish who's the beefy one on the left?

She's more frightening than the fish.


I think she is kinda cute.

HotWingAgenda: Oarfish are harmless. Call me when you're wading along a quiet beach and stumble across a sea krate, or a beached but not dead mako or tiger shark.


Um, yeah. I'd just step around them.

Was just checking out some video of these oarfish. They're pretty amazing to see how they move in the water.

The guy's voice in the video is annoying, but the footage of the oarfish is pretty cool (I think).

The Chinese walking death fish yawns at your nightmares.

Since the article link no longer works, it was referring to the Snakehead, an invasive species harmless to humans but lethal to everything else which possesses the ability to breath air and move across land.

I spent part of my childhood in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and there was a place called the Virginia Marine Science Museum. It was awesome. Lots of hands-on exhibits, very local focus, etc. I went back there a few years ago as a side trip on honeymoon, and found that it had changed completely. Mostly an aquarium, meant more for tourists who were out of state. Kind of sad. I know exactly what you mean.

But if you're ever in Norfolk, Virginia, visit the Chrysler Museum. Amazing art collection I definitely could not fully appreciate as a child. Right across from the Montessori School I went to as a wee child. That brought back memories, and made up for the previously mentioned disappointment.
