The ocean is fucking scary.
And when I say that, I’m referring to my fear of regular old eels, octopi, weird carnivorous plants, fish with teeth, and swimming. I’m not even talking about deep-sea monsters like this fucking thing:
Some fisherguy pulled this 14-foot long, 800-pound nightmare out of the water in the coast of Miami. And like most human beings, he put it up on social media. The crew pulled the giant monster out of the water long enough for a couple instragramzzz, then set it free.
“It was a big female and she swam away pretty quickly,” fisherguy said. “It was kind of cool to catch something new for a change. … When we first saw it we didn’t know what it was. It’s a very rare fish. It’s like a big gigantic whipping stingray. It’s a dinosaur.”
This huge stingray is more commonly known to smarter people as a hookskate. It’s a rare species because it tends to hang out 1000 feet deep on the murky ocean floor with the likes of Perez Hilton, and other bottom dwellers.
