Fish experts have helped us get familiar with many interesting characteristics of underwater sea creatures that continue to surprise us. After an expedition in November last year, a “satanic” species of fish were found deep inside the ocean. According to experts, it is a monstrous anglerfish which looks like “satanic potatoes” and bites a potential mate, just like a vampire, so the female releases an egg that can be fertilised. It was also found that apart from vampire bites, some species of anglerfish permanently fuse themselves into the female while mating. This image given here is of a juvenile female footballfish, according to The Guardian. It was shared by James Maclaine, a senior fish curator at London’s Natural History Museum.
