Teen Reading

Last week we showed you a creepy fish that has human-like teeth, and continuing on with weird animals with human-like teeth. We present to you the promacheuthid squid.



And no, we don’t know how to pronounce that, and we refuse to try.


As you can tell, this is less of a strange fish with human-like teeth and more of a nightmare-inducing creature from the depths. This is a relatively rare specimen – only one has ever been discovered.

Practically nothing is known about this squid. Biologists can’t even tell you if it is a male or female. Also, when we say it was from the depths, we meant it. The only specimen ever found was captured at a depth of 6,600 feet under the southern Atlantic Ocean. Which is good, because we really don’t want to find one ourselves.
