Shut Your Mouth

This fish, known as the umbrellamouth gulper, lives deep in the sea - at depths exceeding 6,500 feet. Also known as the pelican eel, this fish scoops up hapless victims in its loosely hinged jaws.

Despite its ugly and frightening appearance - there is no need for us land lubbers to worry. Not only do they live over a mile below sea level, but these gulpers typically only grow to 2 feet in length.
