    VIDEO

    Now the world can finally get a good look at one of the ocean's more mysterious creatures, the oarfish, believed to be the longest bony fish in existence -- basically, the longest fish that's not a ray or shark, LiveScience reports. .....

    It's about half-way through before you get a good look at it....utterly weird...

    Reader, I just had to comment on the amazing pics you put in your sig - thanks for them. The seal/seaweed one is such a joy to look at..

    And wow. oarfish! Love its luminous bits and those feathery fin bits. I assume those are lures for catching food.

    Have to wonder how many other amazing critters still exist but are rarely or never seen..
