30 Thalassophobic Folks In This Online Group Shared The Most Strange And Creepy Things About Oceans

Published 1 year ago

Humans are trying to explore the entire universe while there’s so much left on our Earth to explore. Have you ever thought about how much we know about the ocean which covers about 70% of the Earth’s surface? It might surprise you that we’ve been living on Earth for ages but more than 80% of the ocean is still unobserved or unexplored.

Since oceans are so mysterious, some people are naturally scared of them. There is even a subreddit called “Thalassophobia” dedicated to the people who are frightened by the open waters. Many folks in this online group share their fears, stories, and experiences of encountering weird and creepy things in the sea. Scroll below to read them.
