The elusive Anglerfish is the stuff of nightmares. The creepy deep-sea fish is rarely observed in its natural habitat, but the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute captured rare footage of the beast 600 meters deep using their remotely operated underwater vehicle. The institute believes that this is the “first video footage ever made of this species alive and at depth.”

Their unique clip has gone viral over the weekend with over 4.75 million hits so far!
