Meet the Black Dragon Fish (Idiacanthus atlanticus).

As one of the most well known inhabitants of the deep sea, dragonfish became easily recognizable with its protruded jaw and giant, fang-like teeth. It can be found as deep as 5.000 ft (1.500 m) and despite the dreaded look, is not much of a threat to humans. With a size of mere 6 inches (15 cm), it can hardly harm larger animals, but nevertheless, fangtooth is a fierce hunter. It has to be in order to survive, as the environment it inhabits is harsh to say the least, with little or no food.

  1. You’re right, but I think Ridley Scott explained his idea for the Alien to Geiger. Still, I’l give you this – the entire series of movies are full of “Geigeresqe” imagery and they wouldn’t have been nearly as good without Geiger’s creativity thrown into the mix.
