Prehistoric Monster Fish

This is perhaps the most appropriately named animal on the planet. A genius named this one the 'prehistoric monster fish' (aka thallasophryne amazonica). That is its actual name. I love it! They could have gone with 'spiny fin fish', or 'ambush fish', or even 'li'l amazon'. But no, they called it as they saw it. Finally, someone with some sense.

Thanks for the link, Rasmus.
