Nara Dream Land

Nara Dream Land is an old abandoned Japanese theme park and let me tell you ghost towns are afraid of this place. Guards are placed on the boarders of the park to keep people out. Wonder what secrets lie past the old rusty gates...

Fangtooth, Viper fish, and Goblin Shark-Holloween's-Creepies

These are our Special's last three creepies  These first two fish are highly aggressive deep sea predators. They are both iconic for their huge teeth that are so large that they are unable to fully close their mouths. The last but certainly not least creepy is a shark that still makes me cringe.

Scyphomedusa Deepstaria-Halloween's Creeepies

Want to see a cool slimy ooze monster? Well this jelly fish fits the bill.  This jelly fish has a very unusual bag like body which it uses to catch and trap prey.  The video below shows the Deepstaria jelly fish being hit by water currents which is being propelled by the submarines propellers causing it to make abnormal body motions. It makes for a very real looking monster. 

Looks like a perfect ooze monster

A lot less scary without propeller wind

Gulper Eel-Holloween's Creepies

Don't let his tiny blue eyes fool you, the Gulper Eel is a silent killer. The Gulper Eel hunts by hovering in deep sea water waiting for prey to pass by. They can sense their next victim by using their extremely sensitive and long tail. When a fish gets to close, it silently opens its pelican like mouth and swallows the victim whole. Here's some rare footage of the eel.     

     Imagine swimming into that
