This is amazing to see! Could you imagine catching one of those ?!?!? Woohoo, lol, looks like an all day fight.
At the same time it's sad to see because it has to be old to be so big. It makes you wonder why it died, and what else lives that far down that we've never seen.
Oarfish inhabit the world's oceans but are found in the dark depths between about 600 and 3,000 feet. On the rare occasions one is seen on or near a beach--this happens very rarely and sporadically--it's either sick or injured, dying or already dead.
