Researchers have caught on camera an elusive fish with a face only a mother or scientist could love.

The Black Seadevil was spotted by scientists with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute around 2,000 feet below the surface according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Females lure prey by dangling a fishing-rod like pole from the top of her head.  Males are much smaller and must attach themselves, like parasites, to females or die.

One scientist says it is “among the most rarely seen of all deep-sea fishes.”
