Common Name: Circular Mega Fish
Scientific Name: Circularis gagantos
The circular mega fish lives in the aphotic zone in the darkest depths of the ocean, These species of ocean life are a dark chrome color and have 6 eyes which helps this predator catch its prey from all different directions. You may be wondering with little to no sunlight in this zone how can they see? The circular mega fish have many antennas that spark light around them when prey is near by or when they moving throughout the ocean. These antennas not only shine light upon there prey but if too close these antennas will be used as a weapon/defense mechanism against their foes and or prey. When prey is caught the mega fish will chomp on the flesh of its prize with razor sharp teeth.
Much like bacteria the circular mega fish can reproduce asexually. Red colored eggs off the creatures tail when done growing will detach from the tail and hatch within 20 days after detachment. A newborn will measure to about 9 inches in length compared to its average adult size of a foot and a half. Circular mega fish will move in a vertical ocean and move its cone shaped lower half in the same direction to speed up and or slow down. The circular mega fish has a chrome color makes it when the spotlight is on or around it to glow. This creature will stay alone and will not mate. Sometimes based on its hunger the mega fish will absorb its offspring.
The circular mega fish is part of the benthos family and can use its wide mouth to quickly take in the water as it moves as the gills lie in its deep throat. The organism will feed on the multiple deceased sea life and its feces which would classify as a filter feeder as it scavenges.
The aphotic zone located between 200m and 1000m and again sunlight barely reaches here. Some abiotic features that the circular mega fish deals with on a daily basis would be dead and decomposing animals and not many plants based on having not a lot of light. Not only do the circular mega fish use their antennas to see this deep down but bioluminescence only plays a part as the light that helps all life in the aphotic zone.
