Weirdest and amazing creatures of the ocean world

The sea, although we don't often see, is home to some of the world's most amazing and most weirdest creatures. Some look scary but nevertheless harmless. Others look nice and friendly but in fact, they're deadly. 

Let's get to know them up close and personal.

These are clownfish. They are perhaps the most famous fish in the world. Everyone knows them with one single name. I'm sure you won't go and start finding Nemo once again.

Mimic octopus is one of the smartest marine animals around. It can also change its colours to blend into its surroundings. A chameleon under the sea? Yeah, you can call it that way.

Member of the cat family like leopard and cheetah? Probably. But spotted puffer fish ain't gonna growl whenever they see you. I'm not sure how they make a sound, though. But they certainly don't growl.

Snake eel buries itself in the sand waiting for its unsuspecting prey. How's that for a trick? They don't have a brain as large as ours. But they surely know how to use theirs :)
