Recently it was oarfish in California that caught our collective aquatic eye. Today, thanks to a viral (NSFW at times) post on Reddit, the world gets a look at the usually bottom-dwelling batfish caught recently in Santos, Brazil.


Eagle-eyed ichthyologists on Reddit like /r/unidan say the creature is a bat fish, known scientifically as the family Ogcocephalidae that live to depths of up to 3300 feet.
