Blobfish: a creepy sea-critter

Mr Blobby (a fathead, blobfish or Psychrolutidae), pictured here, was "trawled during the NORFANZ expedition at a depth between 1013 m and 1340 m, on the Norfolk Ridge, north-west of New Zealand, June 2003." I had no idea that things like this existed outside of the cartoons. He gives me the crawlies.
