The Creepiest Things People Saw at Sea

A lot of people have a fear of open water, and that fear kinda makes sense. Whether it's the isolation, the exposure to the elements, or the danger of unseen wild animals, it makes sense that people, especially sailors have creepy stories of things that happened at sea.

The bluntnose sixgill shark is an ancient deep sea predator. Like it's been around since before most dinosaurs. They average between 3.1 to 4.2 meters (10 to 14 ft) long but can get up to 8 meters (26 ft) long. This crew of scientists got a good look at one. These group is also credited with being the first ever to tag an animal from a submarine. Look at that eye roll into the back of it's head.
