Ocean Critters That Will Scare You More than Sharks (18 pics)

These ocean creatures are very creepy and more terrifying than sharks. They are deadly, incredibly large, and they all are very scary.

 

Giant Halibut

Can you imagine swimming next to that thing?

Colossal Squid

Stone Fish

Please tell me what is worse than a fish that camouflages itself as a rock in shallow water, injects a poison lethal to human upon contact and can survive on dry land for over 24 hours.

Giant Stingray

So far, only found in freshwater but has the capacity to live in saltwater if it chooses.

Barry the Sea Worm

Oarfish

Mega Mouth Shark

Ok, ok I know Mega Mouth is technically a shark, but look at it. It's about ten times more terrifying than a great white.

Blue Ringed Octopus

The biggest one is the size of a golf ball, but if you touch it, there is no antidote for its lethal venom.

Sunfish

Giant Isopod

These things have been around since the dinosaurs and can survive for months without food, so you can pretty much expect them to be in our oceans forever.

Coconut Crab

So if creatures in the water have you terrified to go swimming, the coconut crab is a good reason to never set foot on a beach.

Jelly Fish

… seem relatively harmless until you come across this monstrosity while scuba diving.

North Pacific Giant Octopus

Barracuda

Huge Spider Crab

Moray Eels

They look small and harmless poking out of coral reefs, but I know from personal experience these eels can grow up to 9 feet long and can easily take a limb off of a diver.

I've been bitten by a moray and the teeth truly are razor sharp. Even after birth the teeth are sharp as razors as I found out the hard way.

To my knowledge, the sunfish is harmless and friendly to humans. Oriental fishermen often doom them to a horrible death by chopping off their dorsal fins for 'shark fin soup'. The sunfish is then unable to move.
