The Black Seadevil, known for her great personality.
Here at Happy Place, we tend to focus on the cute, cuddly and adorable. In the interest of fairness it's only right that once in a while we show some love for nature's less adorable specimens. And they don't come much less adorable than the anglerfish, perhaps the butt-ugliest creature on this or any other planet.
This rare footage, captured by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute using a remote-controlled vehicle, is supposedly the very first video of a female anglerfish, which also goes by the much more sinister sounding "Black Seadevil."
The Seadevil lives in total darkness near the bottom of the ocean. Which, after watching this clip, sounds like a good place for her.
