Deep sea exploration crew spots bizarre fish that looks like a frog, legs and all
NOAA's Okeanos Explorer team recently spotted a strange fish with legs during its deep sea mission.
Known generally as a frog fish and specifically as a Chaunax, the underwater creature has flipper-like appendages that allow it to amble over the sea floor.
Evolution has also given the fish a distinct advantage when it comes to capturing prey.
Between its eyes is a lure that draws meals and snacks to within easy striking distance.
The footage of the Chaunax was gathered as part of NOAA's Deepwater Exploration of the Marianas.
