YIKES! I would hate to have that thing on my fishing line. Imagine what else is out there that we don’t know about.
A research team conducting a dive in Monterey Bay off the coast of California have captured first-ever video of a rarely-seen denizen of the deep called the black seadevil.
The creature was spotted this week in the dark, deep waters 1,900 feet below the surface by researchers with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.
Robinson said a luminescent “fishing pole” projecting from the anglerfish’s head is a glowing lure to attract prey.
Robinson told the paper they captured the fish to study, but don’t know how long it will survive.
