Many people are deeply interested in the deep sea, desert and mountains. After all, there are too many places in the world that we have never set foot in. There are too many things that we don’t know, from the alien base to the Tianchi water monster in Changbai Mountain. Too many unknown things attract our attention. This is not true. A species once considered as “monster” has been discovered again and successfully uncovered by scientists.
In fact, as early as the 1870s, the crew of the Royal Navy ship Challenger once caught this monster in the Coral Sea. This is a very strange faceless fish, completely beyond the scope of human cognition of fish. The reason why it is called “faceless” is that it has no mouth, no eyes, and even fuzzy facial structure. It was discovered 100 years ago Monster, in a deep-sea exploration in Australia on May 31, 2017, found its trace again.
It mainly lives in the deep sea below 4000 meters off the east coast of Australia. Its living environment is very harsh, and the water temperature is only 1 ℃ above zero. According to our common sense, the deep sea is dark, and the eyes of fish living in the deep sea are seriously degraded because they don’t use their eyes for a long time. Not surprisingly, scientists finally found hidden eyes under the skin of faceless fish, and relatively small mouth structure under the body, which is full of densely distributed teeth and can swallow a variety of crustaceans.
Experts initially identified it as an unknown species, but later through research, it was found that it is a kind of COD eel, whose scientific name is typhonusnasus. They have not been found in Australian waters since the end of the 19th century.
Almost all the people who have seen “faceless fish” sigh at the magic of nature. We have found that just 4000 meters below the bottom of the sea. What unknown things are waiting for us further below 4000 meters?
