We know pretty much all we need to know about snakes. They are awful but at least we know what they are capable of and how to treat their bites/resist their compelling advances. The abyssal plain? We know more about the moon than we know about the abyssal plain. Not just that, but genius ocean scientists speculate that we have yet to discover 2/3 of ocean life. That python looked slow and clumsy, I bet if I gave it a treat I could coax into the oven.
If a python tried to force its way into my digs, I'd rather give it a load of #2 birdshot in the head!
What was the length of the giant crocodile? It is sometimes claimed salt-water crocs go over 30 feet, but a lot of experts challenge this. I think 21 or 22 feet is usually the top figure, which is still ample to make short work of the brawniest of men.
This is the Mantis shrimp. Cool looking little guy but these guys aren't to be messed with. My friend caught one while we were fishing and luckily he knew what it was so he made sure neither of us got near it. Their claws pack a mean punch. The acceleration is near equivalent to a .22 caliber bullet. They can pretty much just take off a finger. They also are able to see colors that we can't even see. Even though I think they look awesome, they aren't really kept in aquariums because they kill everything in them and have been known to break the aquarium glass.
That was cool Rambo. The mantis shrimp is quite amazing. Although, my seawater nemesis is the sculpin. One of my favorite fish to catch, I have had many encounters with them. They are absolutely delicious fish which is one reason I like them so much. They're also quite cool looking in that barbaric "don't fuck with me" kind of way. They have a poisonous venom in their spines and let me tell you, from the many times that these bastards have got me, it hurts like a bitch. It may not be the ugliest looking fish, but this very common fish can bring a world of hurt...
Is this like one of those hidden image paintings they used to sell at kiosks in the mall? The one's you had to stare at for a long time and then you'd see a bunch of dolphins or, in this case, a pig slaughter festival. Because I can't do those, I never saw shit.
