The rabbit fish (Chimaera monstrosa) is common at depths ranging from 50 to 1000 meters. In the fjords of Norway it can be seen by divers as it migrate shallower at up to 10-30m meters. Fantastic animal!

Clione limacina, or sea angel, photographed outside Kristiansand on the Norwegian south coast. These little ophistobranchs grow to about 3 centimeters and sometimes occur in such grat numbers that they are food for whales :-)
