Consider this one out of California, courtesy of NPR: An 18-foot oarfish, dead, has washed up on shore this month. That's all you need to know. The photo on the NPR website is worth a 1,000 words, cliche or not.
If you're curious about oarfish -- I'd never heard of them -- here's this. And this. And this.
(Video below is of another oarfish, not the California one.)
