Lives in mile deep water off the coast of California.
They are rarely seen because they can be 3,000 meters underwater.
They are pinkish,have a droopy face and the average length is 2 ft.
It can live in such a deep part of the ocean because they don't have any muscles and they are less dense than water which means it won't get crushed by the pressure of the oceans weight.
Although it has spines on its back it is harmless to humans.
They are endangered because fisherman trap them in nets on accident while they are trying to catch crabs and lobsters.
They nest on the sea floor.

They travel in herds and eat small creatures that live in the mud of the sea floor.
They have large tube feet and tentacles used to push food into their mouths.
They live in the deep ocean so they are not much of a threat to humans.
They are not endangered.
Blue Parrot fish
The Bush Viper is a highly poisonous snake with strange hairlike scales.It waits in bushes hiding for prey such as small rodents,frogs and lizards ready to ambush them as they walk by.
