British scientists have filmed a species of fish said to be the deepest-dwelling ocean animal ever captured on camera. ...the ghostly white Hadal snail fish off Japans east coast at a depth of 7,700m....
Incredible: The snail fish survive in total darkness
at a depth where the pressure is equivalent to 1,600 elephants standing
on the roof of a Mini
...The hadal snailfish...are found below 3.7 miles...in total darkness, near-freezing temperatures and immense water pressure.
They feed on the thousands of tiny shrimp-like creatures that scavenge the carcasses of dead fish and detritus reaching the ocean floor.

I hear they taste just like chicken...
Even these blind fish 3.7 miles beneath the ocean suface, living all their lives in the dark and freezing depths, know that Barack Obama is an America-hating Socialist.
probem is, you’d have to sit on the ocean floor (which would make your body implode) to eat them, because if you bring them to the surface, they’d prolly explode due to the change in pressure.
what would a mini and 1600 elephants be doing on the ocean bottom. please explain.
All of them are white. Are they some form of segregationist species? (White segregationists - sounds like Democrats!)
And Today on Iron Chef
Lower than whale s**t = democrat.
The elephants aren’t on the ocean bottom. They are standing on the roof of the mini.
Don’t hold back. Tell us how you really feel.
Even a blind Hadal snail fish can find a (whale) nut.
I can see the Japanese adopting exploding fish as a delicacy. They'll keep them in pressurized containers right up till the moment they're served, then they open the container and BOOM. Everybody gets to pick sashimi off the walls and ceiling. And each other.
That wouldn’t be the strangest thing I’d ever eaten at a Japanese restaurant.
But now you do have to share an experience. :-)
Already been done.
I say we deep fry a couple and see what they taste like.
And when the flash went off, they all held their fins to their eyes and exclaimed, "Aw, man, HARSH, warn us next time!!!"
