I don’t have the slightest clue as to what this creature with no eyes is that washed up on a Texas City beach in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. In fact, I am not sure that anyone knows. The ocean is enormous, and if Shark Week has taught me anything, there are plenty of species that probably live in the ocean that we’ve never seen before.
Preeti Desai seeked help on Twitter and biologist and eel specialist Dr. Kenneth Tighe eventually gave his thoughts. He believes the creature to be a fangtooth snake-eel, whatever the heck that is. Anyways, your guess is probably as good as his because it sounds like he just looked at the creature and said “AH yes the ol’ fangtooth snake-eel.”
