Meet blobfish. This deep-sea beauty has the attention of millions around the world. Some say it is the world’s ugliest creature. Some just love it and have it in their apartments, as souvenirs.
Blobfish lives near the bottom of the ocean, at the depth of 600 to 1 200 meters. Water pressure is very high there. And the skin of blobfish has the density of water. It’s body is mainly jelly-like substance which is not as heavy as the water, so the fish can swim quite easily near the ocean floor where the pressure is very high.
Blobfish lack muscle, but this is an advantage. When it is time to eat, blobfish simply open their mouths and float above the ocean’s floor. No hurry! Food is all around if you eat plankton!
Blobfish take care of their young better than many humans! They collect their young ones together and protect them!
Very rational behavior, isn’t it!
