The Lamprey
The Lamprey

Yes, those are teeth. These long creatures look like they could suck you in and never let go. Well, that's just how they survive. Lampreys are like vampires that latch onto dolphins and suck their blood until they die. They also breed in a similar way by wrapping around a female and squeezing her until her eggs pop out. Despite all these terrifying characteristics, apparently they taste good.

The Monkfish
The Monkfish

This creature looks like one of those mythical sea monsters you'd never want to encounter. But, it's real, all too real. Although this monkfish looks terrifying, it's rise in popularity has brought the price of its tail up to that of a lobster! We're not sure we want to even see its tail in the seafood aisle after seeing the big body it comes from. 

The Eel
The Eel

If eels don't make you squirm, we don't know what will. Their snake-like bodies just give us the heebie jeebies and make us feel like they're crawling all over us. Gross!

The Oyster
The Oyster

Done. Game over. This oyster looks like it's been run over, chewed up and spit out. It's absolutely terrifying. But somehow, people love their oysters. 

The Conch
The Conch

No, not the magic conch shell from Spongebob. You might love this slimy creature fried to perfection, but once you see it alive, the game is over. The body that comes out of that shell might looks disgusting to you, but the conch is the most popular dish in the Bahamas. It is often eaten fried as conch fritters or raw in salads. Yum....?

The Geoduck
The Geoduck

These clams aren't your typical round-shelled clam. We think the fact that this club-like clam is actually living is the most terrifying thing about this creature. Their name, Geoduck, is pronounced "gooey-duck" and that just makes us squirm. 

The King Crab
The King Crab

Crab may be good on your plates, but this monster looks like it could pinch your eyes out. Those claws, that mouth, yep, no thank you. We'll stick with seeing these bad boys in the deep fryer.

The Calamari
The Calamari

Calamari, also known as squid, is commonly served fried with marinara sauce in an Italian restaurant. But before they are fried to perfection, they look terrifying, absolutely terrifying. Why do all seafood have creepy, beady eyes?! 

The Scallop
The Scallop

Scallops are a popular dish, but the living creature looks nothing like the cooked scallops you order at a restaurant. The tiny black dots all over this scallop just look like eyes staring at you from every direction. Quit watching us!

The Shrimp
The Shrimp

Oh shrimp. Whether fried or seared, shrimp are a go-to seafood for most people at a restaurant. These live creatures also have creepy eyes that just seem like they're looking into your soul. We're so glad our shrimp cocktails come with the heads off of them!

The Skate
The Skate

This thing is terrifying! Although skates don't normally grow to be this large, the fact that they can, is horrific. Just look at its beady eyes and mouth that's bigger than the guy behind it! Never. Going, In. The. Ocean. Again.
