Three new ghost-like species found in world’s deepest marine trenches

Freaky sightings from the alien-like world at the bottom of the oceans.

Thousands of meters below the ocean’s surface in the deep trenches, everything is in pitch black and the pressure can be up to a thousand times greater than at the sea level. This unexplored environment looks and feels like it’s from an alien planet — and the creatures that inhabit it are no different. Three new such species — translucent, scaleless, ghost-like creatures — were recently fished out of the bottoms of the ocean, off the coasts of Peru and Chile.
