    Why Haven’t I Seen Any Oarfish In An Aquarium? Are they that rare? or are they endangered, i would like to see one close up or in person or do they just not have any in America?

    • Curator says:

      Turtles, snakes, coelacanth, monotremes, ants, wasps, tailed frog, New Zealand leiopelmatid frogs, Japanese and Chinese giant salamanders, marsupials, shrews and crocodilians.

    • Curator says:

      The term deep sea creature refers to organisms that live below the photic zone of the ocean. These creatures must survive in extremely harsh conditions, such as hundreds of atmospheres of pressure, small amounts of oxygen, very little food, no sunlight, and constant, extreme cold. Most creatures have to depend on food floating down from above.

      There are too many to give a full list and scientists haven’t explored the entire ocean to know how many there are.
