This fish remain 'legendary' since it hasn't been verified. Interesting!

Interesting! There are so many animals we donīt know about yet, specially in unexplored places like the oceanic abyss. Thanx Agnes!

Fascinating and intriguing for the stories that are true, there must be many of them and some that we don't even know about.

Wow! I have a great interest in deep-sea life, but I'd never seen an oarfish before! They're spectacular because of their size, but not monster-scary; and this fish on video was swimming up to only 450'depth in daytime.

Thanks, Agnes.
