secretofthesea:

This angler fish was found off of California’s Central Coast at a depth of 11,000 meters. This particular species—Chaunacops coloratus—wasn’t documented alive until 2002. It is thought to change color as it matures, when an adult it would be red and younger a blueish-transparent.

Good lord, when the first pic scrolled up on my dash, I thought it was a cartoon.  Amazing.  Wasn’t aware of this one and it’s right off my coast!
