#21 – Atlantic Wolffish
This frightening looking deep sea beast is one of the scariest fish on the planet.
Check out the teeth on these bad boys. There are 4 to 6 teeth on each the top and bottom rows of the jaw for biting, and behind these teeth on the upper jaw, there are three rows of teeth used for crushing food. The lower jaw, on the other hand, only has two rows of extra teeth for crushing food. There’s also serrated teeth scattered around in the wolffish’s throat.
Also known as the wolf eel, Atlantic catfish, or seawolf, the largest Atlantic wolffish ever caught measured nearly 5 feet long (1.5 meters) and weighed up to 40 lbs (18kg).
