Caption

Pacific spookfish (Rhinochimaera pacifica), computer artwork. This is a deep sea chimaera, a relative of the sharks. It uses its long fleshy snout to detect electrical currents, and hence locate its prey. It inhabits the aphotic zone, the region of the oceans where no sunlight penetrates, and is found between depths of around 300 to 1500 metres. It can reach a length of over 120 centimetres.
