This magnificently creepy sea monster washed up on the shore of Laguna Beach, California about a month ago.

It is most likely a Pacific Football Fish.

That thing looks so corrupt!

 

This eye looks like it’s an f/1.2 camera lens!

Thanks for all photos, Guys.

Big eye fish and sea pig really surprised me, didn’t know these species and I’m quite familiar with bizarre marine life examples.
But Pacific Barreleye Fish is the biggest alien of all above to me. I knew it before, but it’s the weirdest path in evolution here.
And its Latin name has funny origin as well Big Smile
Opisthoproctidae is derived from the Greek words opisthe (“behind”) and proktos (“anus”).

Northbeard, you’re the boss, pom pom crab cheers you up! Smile

Strange coral in waters of Curaçao, near Venezuela.

(I'm kinda breaking the no sexy pics rule, so hopefully Mr. Admin doesn't mind too much.)

This absolutely stunning colony of Symphyllia wilsoni from Extreme Corals DE is one of those stupendous corals that has it all: a colorful mantle, contrasting oral disc, orange mouths all riding a perfect shape colony that is just begging to be someone’s centerpiece coral.

Not the responses I was expecting – must be my bad breath or something…

But this one from haze is definitely pretty weird.

Thank you northbeard Beer

Yep, not many see creature enthusiast here, unfortunately…
(as corals are creatures, not plants Smile )

And the tiny creature, barely visible in the middle of the photo, pygmy seahorse…actually is a fish…cute and monogamic, which is not very typical for fishes…and it has a bag on the belly, bit like marsupials…which is used to grow spawn to give a birth to even smaller pygmy seahorses…and the parent giving a birth is a male…so, not bizarre at all Wink

But now for something completely different, show me some creativeness in package design, pretty please.

Two great examples in one pic.

I particularly like the cigarettes in the coffin.  ;)

By the way, I censored the toilet paper pic with a program called Nimbus Capture.

Nimbus isn't the most user-friendly, but it's really good for blurring out rectangles.  :THUMBS-UP:
