Some of the deepest parts of our planet are a home to rare species like the Viperfish. Earlier we did a post about other species that live at great depths in the Marianas Trench, you should check it out also!
Due to its ellusive lifestyle, scientists have been unable to record exact figures of this species. It is estimated that the Viperfish can live anywhere between 30 and 40 years in the wild. A specimen in captivity has a significally shorter lifespan – only several hours.
