Saccopharynx lavenbergi

The Saccopharynx lavenbergi lives in the bathypelagic, marine, depth range 2000 - 3000 m , usually 2000 - 3000 m environment.

You wouldn't want to meet a hungry Saccopharynx lavenbergi in the depths. These babies can reach six feet in length, have rows of sharp little teeth, and, like pythons of the deep, can swallow prey much fatter than themselves. More
