People all over the world are flabbergasted when ever they see creatures of the sea washed up on the beaches and they keep guessing what kind of an animal that might be, some even going to the extent that it might be alien life!

The creature in this video is a type of fish called Eptatretus, or Pacific hagfish, which can be found living on the floor of the Pacific ocean. They resemble like early Paleozoic fish, with their eel-like body, yet they are not related to eels.

This encounter has been filmed on a rocky beach near Tirúa, Chile. This type of fish rarely wash up upon shore, which probably means that someone fished it out of the water. So don't worry, you might never be able to encounter this beast from the deep!

If, however, you are an aquatic enthusiast with a penchant for discovering the oddities of this world, then you should definitely check out this countdown of the top 5 strangest fish under the sea. Learning is so much fun when you get to do it through video!

Suffice it to say that humankind better get down to the ground and explore this planet first, before they go out exploring others! Who knows what other extraordinary things they might discover!

      It looks like it's wounded and suffering. :/ That looks like a trail of blood. What happened to it and how did it get out of the water in the first place. So sad!!!

      That appears to be a hagfish. Why it is not in the water, deep along the sea floor is rather odd. They generally do not live anywhere near the shallow parts of the sea.. as they feed on dead sharks, whales and other sea life that sink to the bottom.
