The sea contains untold numbers







http://www.greenfacts.org/glossary/images/chimaera.jpg


The sea contains untold numbers of strange and
bizarre creatures. It is said that we know more about our own solar system
than we know about our oceans.


Indeed, some creatures of the sea can seem more
alien than anything you can imagine.


But even worse, some of them can seem more
frightening than your worst nightmare.


Below we have collected pictures of 24 CREATURES
FROM THE DEEP!





Chimaeras are cartilaginous fish in the order
Chimaeriformes. They are related to the sharks and rays, and are sometimes
called ghost sharks, ratfish (not to be confused with the "rattails"), or
rabbitfishes.



Chimaeras live in temperate ocean floors and grow up to two meters long.
Like other members of the class Chondrichthyes, chimaeras have a skeleton
constructed of cartilage. Their skin is smooth and lacks scales, and their
color can range from black to brownish gray.



For defense, most chimaeras have a venomous spine located in front of the
dorsal fin.



Chimaeras resemble sharks in some ways: they employ claspers for internal
fertilization of females and they lay eggs with leathery cases. They differ
from sharks in that their upper jaws are fused with their skulls; they have
separate anal and urogenital openings; and they lack the many sharp and
replaceable teeth of sharks, having instead a few large permanent grinding
tooth plates.

In some classifications the chimaeras are included (as subclass Holocephali)
in the class Chondrichthyes of cartilaginous fishes; in other systems this
distinction may be raised to the level of class. Chimaeras also have some
characteristics of bony fishes.



There are about forty species in six genera and three families:

This strange cartilaginous fish uses
its long snout to scan over the sea floor for the electrical impulses of its
prey that bury in the muddy sea floor, just like a metal detector. Like
other chimaeras (such as ghost and elephant sharks), these animals lay horny
egg cases in which their young are left to develop, potentially for up to
one year.
