Black Seadevil Caught on Video for the First Time

A female Black Seadevil has been captured on video in what researchers say are the first images of their kind. The grotesque creature, a type of anglerfish, was recorded off the coast of California at a depth of approximately 1,900 feet (579 m) by a remotely operated vehicle controlled by scientists at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. The elusive fish—known for using a "lure" suspended over its mouth to attract prey—was spotted during a midwater transect, an exercise intended to catalog all species encountered at a particular depth.

The article page won't open for me, not to worry, I saw this on my local news a few days ago. It looked like it was silently screaming.

What little is known about the elusive anglerfish is truly horrifying.

Females of the species are believed to lure their prey with a luminescent orb dangling from their head and will attack fishes larger than her own size.

Males are tiny in comparison and lack fangs and a proper gut.

To survive, they are forced to latch onto a female's body and live as a parasite sucking nutrients from their host's body.

"If they don't find a female mate, they drown," University of Washington expert Ted Pietsch told the Santa Cruz Sentinel.

"They are not even properly equipped to eat."

There is still much to be discovered in marine biology, especially in depths and with camouflaged organisms.....interestingThink

This fish reminds me of many of the women I've met over the years and a couple I was married to, as well.

I must admit that this fish reminds me of 1 of my x-wives. Damn the looks and the actions described in this read really fit her to a tee....
