These deep sea creatures are both creepy and cool.

In 2017, scientists from Museums Victoria, the CSIRO and NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub returned from a 31-day, deep sea voyage from Launceston to Brisbane, having uncovered a collection of weird and frightful creatures from 4000 m below the surface. More than one third of the creatures found during the research expedition were previously unknown to science.
