ViperFish – Terrifying Glass Fanged Predator Of The Sea

There's a number of dangerous creatures in the sea but none of them compares to the terrifying glass fanged predator of the sea, “Viperfish”.

This particular species of fish is believed to have most horrifyingly large teeth among all the other kinds of fish on earth. These fangs of the Viperfish are so enormous that they don’t even fit inside their head. 

They hunt by swimming at an extremely fast speed towards their prey and trap it inside their mouth, with their large fangs acting like a prison. The viperfish can derange their jaw at an angle of 90 degrees approx., which creates plenty of room for them to gobble up a victim that is 63% of their own physical capacity.

It can easily absorb any shocks from attacks with the help of the primary vertebra behind its head. These creatures also contain a special organ called “photophores” which act as another deadly weapon, by attracting prey from the above due to a pigment coat and reflector.

The time period of this species is estimated to be between 30-40 years in the wild ocean. This creature has sharpened and perfected its hunting skills under the dark ocean with its long glassy fangs and has been a nightmare to many living beings.

These creatures can be found in any tropical or moderate water bodies in the world, especially around the Australian coast and in the south-east. They tend to dwell in the depths of waters around 200 – 1,000 metres, places where the temperature varies from 4 to 5 degrees.

Due to their habit of staying away from sunlight and shallow waters resulting in separation, human affairs of the outer world has had almost no impact on these creatures. However, their reproductive patterns are still unfamiliar due to similar reasons.
