Marine biologists at Oceanlab have found the world's deepest fish: an "extremely fragile" species of snailfish. At a depth of 26,700 feet below the ocean surface - that's roughly equal to the length of the Las Vegas Strip - the little fish appeared like something out of a Pixar film.
"This really deep fish did not look like anything we had seen before, nor does it look like anything we know of," Alan Jamieson, a marine biologist at the University of Aberdeen, in the U.K., said in a statement. "It is unbelievably fragile, with large wing-like fins and a head resembling a cartoon dog."
