Earlier this week the body of a 15-ft. oarfish – a creature casually known as a sea serpent – washed up on the shore of Santa Catalina Island in California, reports CBS News.
Oarfish are a rare sight on land or at sea, because the swimmers live in the depths of the ocean, spending time 3,000 ft. below the water's surface. It's not known what caused the death of this specimen, or what made it wash up on the island.

The rare pocket shark was discovered in the depths of the Gulf of Mexico on a government research trip in 2010, according to the Associated Press, but wasn't identified until recently.
That's 200 lbs. of goodwill ambassador right there.
