Nature's Freak Part III: The Viperfish

This is the viperfish, Chauliodus sloani. There’s not a whole lot to say about this fish besides it’s one ugly mother. However, I will share some marginally notable trivia. 1) The viperfish is found in deep water all around the world from Maine to Australia. 2) It’s got bioluminescent fins, meaning its fins light up the color of glow-in-the-dark stickers. 3) It's usually about a foot long. And 4) it'll mess you up.
