Pacific Viperfish

Poor shrimp, squid and fish get caught the viperfish's sharp teeth. It then unhinges its jaws, much like a snake, to swallow its prey. These fish can grow up to 12 inches in length and live up to eight years. Luckily, their primary habitat is in the Monterey Bay, so shrimp and fish around the world can feel a little safer.
