Can you imagine reeling this in?
I would have loved to see the reaction on the fishermen’s face in Singapore when he pulled this out of the water…
Via the Daily Mail, this creature is a Basket Star (or Gorgonocephalus Caputmedusae, have fun pronouncing that) and isn’t that uncommon.
Okay, so it won’t eat you alive and haunt your dreams… and it may not be a sea monster, but it’s about the creepiest thing you could possibly reel in.
This Basket Star is actually a relative of the starfish.

Sea monster… Basket Star with creepy, slow moving tentacles… same difference right? They both put out the same vibe!
I think those fishermen probably got the willies when they put this thing in their boat.
