New deep-sea anglerfish discovered in Gulf of Mexico

They are some of the most interesting and unique creatures in the oceans — deep-sea life. Most people can identify a shark or sea turtle or whale, but many are shocked to see what a lanternfish or oarfish looks like. Deep-sea creatures can be down-right scary looking. Adding to the list of deep-sea creatures, marine biologists recently found a never-before seen species from the deep waters of the northern Gulf of Mexico.
