14 Monsters Living Beneath The Sea

8. Giant Isopod

giant isopod

One of the ocean’s bugs, or one of the ocean’s giant bugs. This giant isopod is commonly found in the waters of the Atlantic ocean, as well as the Pacific and Indian oceans. Fun fact: they are also related to the pill bug, which explains their physical appearance. They are scavengers in the deep sea, and could be found doing so at a depth of 170 meters up to 2,140 meters, which is hella deep. They may be scavengers, but they are mainly carnivorous, feeding on dead whales, fish, and even squid, and prey on the slow-movers in the deep sea.
