Although not strictly deep sea creatures (however, they can be found in the deeps) are our very important algae friends, the diatom!

They act as lungs of The Earth, fulfilling a major chunk of all the photosynthesis that occurs (oxygen production, carbon capture and energy that forms the basis of the food chain in the ocean).

They also look wicked!

You wouldn't have to worry about them in the Amazon because they are from Africa

These nasty fuckers are though....

^^

Its called a Candiru.

I think that photo is from that TV show House...but it has happened irl.

All you need to know is when swimming in the Amazon, think twice about pissing in the rivers. Candiru prefer the warmer temperatures.
