Imagine going for a lovely little snorkel with a class you are teaching. The sun is shining, the water feels great, and then all of sudden you run into a 18-foot long ugly-as-sin sea creature. That is exactly what happened to Marine science instructor Jasmine Santana recently off the coast off Catalina island.

According to KTLA: the oarfish, which can grow to more than 50 feet, is a deep-water pelagic fish — the longest bony fish in the world…

No, thank you.
