    The thing with blobfish is, they look fairly cute when they are still in their deep sea habitat, the only reason you see the all BLEARGGGG is thier bodues are 90% water and so decompression at the surface streaches them out.

    Okay, I checked it and I’m convinced: the okapi is not a product of Photoshop… strange!

    This is not generally known.

    The angler fish is the one on the first picture, with the male shown. The other picture shows the monkfish, though, and while I am not sure about its reproductive habits, I know it isn’t the same as the one from the photo above it..

  9. J.M. says:

    Thanks for your thoughts pavle. However, on comparing it with other angler fish shots, I can’t verify your claim. On top of that, the photo’s author and host site definitely confirm that it’s an angler (one caught in Norway more specifically).

  10. pavle says:

    There are, apparently, many angler fish species, I have to admit I didn’t know that fact. The fishes on the said photos are definitely not the same, and the fish from the second photo indeed is the monkfish, or goosefish, an angler fish subspecie(lophius)-otherwise known as the poor-man’s lobster(I have eaten many of them). The first one is, as the link says, Photocorynus spiniceps, completely different fish, allthough from the same family-I wouldn’t dare eating it:)))

  11. J.M. says:

    Thanks for clarifying that it was indeed a type of angler. Personally I wouldn’t want to come across either variety! Then again fish creep me out (I know that’s strange), so these ones do a bit more than usual. :) I can’t imagine wanting to eat one. While I don’t eat seafood, so I wouldn’t understand the comparison, for our other readers what would you say eating an angler is most similar to?

  12. pavle says:

    Hhaha, well, it is quite similar to lobster meat, except it is a bit less firm, and more “fishy”, not crabby, I would say. Still, it tastes very good-of course, to the ones who do want to eat it, for whatever crazy reasons:). Only the tail is eaten, normally filleted (allthough in the Northern Adriatic the whole devil can be found thrown into the pot, among other fish, in a dish called brodetto, a type of stew).
    I didn’t know about the weird reproductive method, though…
    Very good article, if I may say.

    Those Proboscis monkeys really creep me out. I’m not sure what it is about them, but I think it’s the fact that they look a lot like humans.

    Not necessarily with their nose, but their eyes and especially in the first picture, the monkey on the left looks like a guy wearing a jumper!

  14. J.M. says:

    I’m not sure why Dan, but they remind me of oompa loompas.

    I believe that Bigfoot is real because I know what Bigfoot really is. The film that Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin made in 1967 in Northern California at Bluff Creek of Bigfoot was real. Here is what they filmed on October 20 1967.
    Several thousand years ago there were thousands of slaves that ran off around the world and started their own countries. When these slaves ran off there was a large group of men and boys that took off and ended up in Africa. Some of them were giants as tall as 9 ft. or even taller. The giant named Goliath that David killed with his slingshot was 9 ft. tall. So there were giants in those days. Some of these men and boys went exploring to Borneo and caught female orangutans and took them to South America and had sex with them and created the Indians. The men and boys that stayed in Africa caught female gorillas and had sex with them and created the Africans. When scientists found the bones in Africa they thought we evolved naturally from a female chimpanzee.
    But it wasn’t a natural evolution it was a man made evolution. That’s where all the Bigfoot and Orangutan creatures come from. They are half man and half gorilla and half man and half orangutan. They use to call the Indians the red man. The orangutan has reddish hair. When those men bred out the hair the Indian’s skin remained red. The gorilla has black hair and skin. When those men bred out the hair the African’s skin remained black. Some of the Indians and Africans are tall. And some of the Bigfoot and Orangutan creatures are tall. They are tall because some of the men that created them were tall. Some scientists believe that we evolved naturally from a female chimpanzee. Have you ever seen an 8 ft. tall chimpanzee? I haven’t either.
    Bigfoot migrated up through Africa and came into the United States at the top of Africa when they were connected by land. The Orangutan creatures migrated up through Central America and came into the United States like the Indians did later on. The first Europeans that saw the Africans said that some of the African women had genitals that resembled that of a gorilla. If you look at the nose of an African you will notice that it is wide like the gorilla’s nose. The creature that Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin filmed in 1967 was half man and half gorilla. It was a female Bigfoot that they named Patty. Patty was not a man in a costume, she is not our missing link and she is not a figment of our imagination.
    Patty was a creature that was created by men that had sex with female gorilla’s and orangutans a long time ago. Patty was a man made creature. Could you please help me contact all the good Bigfoot researchers and let them know what it is that they are searching for. Half man and half gorilla.

    Fantastic website…I njoyd it, evn though the fish get a lil creepy, and learnd a few more things exist

  18. XDDXDD says:

    Weird looking, esspecially the blobfish. Hey anybody reading this ask a scientist this. “If we evolved from monkeys why aren’y monkeys still evolving?” and “If we evolved from monkeys, where did monkeys evolve from?”
    I know the answer: God! He created all things. Nobody could be smart enought to creat the human eye because it is so complex. Nobody but god. Same thing with humans. God created us!

  19. XDDXDD says:

    Can anyone argue with that?

    this is what nature wants~ No stupid BS about God creating this. This is natures plan xDD <3 I gotta love natures little quirks. I love this one creature, but i keep forgetting what it's called, it's got practically creamsicle colors, a mammal, i think it was a marsupial…. not sure, but I thought it was the most adorable thing in the world

    In reply to the one who called himself “Jesus Christ ON April 12, 2010 – 6:52 pm” : Are you loco in your coco? Sasquatch ARE real, as real as any other being in this plane of physical exixtence, however, your story is not only a load of crap, it is also offensive. I am Native American. My ancestors were here 22,000 years ago, building mounds which still mystify folks today. They had a written language which today’s “scientists” don’t like to admit they have as yet been unable to decypher. Read your bible, and you will read about a man called Esau, who was covered all over with red hair. The “history” that is taught in public and Catholic schools is full of lies. Do some research. Read about Atlantis. Read about the Elusinian Mysteries. Read the Mahabarata. Read about the Anunaki. Read what a man called Billy Meier has to say. There is so much that modern “civilized” humans do not comprehend, mostly because they are all conditioned from early childhood to be obedient sheep, rather than the Free Spiritual Beings that Creator intended. Mankind was NEVER given “dominion” over all other species. Rather, he was charged with the responsibility of caretaking Mother Earth, and all other species. (Which, I might add, he is currently failing miserably at!) Soon you will see. Soon you will all see, when the Truth manifests and comes knocking upon your door.
    Until then,
    Peace to all.
    Namaste.
