In scenes that remind us of Horror films like “Alien” or at the very least the plant from “The Little Shop of Horrors,” one creature has been dubbed “the Scariest Creature on Earth”.
The video above features a Green Goby Eel, but a rare variety was spotted recently and unusually in a lake in China and is identified as a Purple Goby Eel.
When you take a look into its hungry mouth full of sharp teeth, the creature’s expressions instantly make you feel like it could have just burst out of someone’s chest and is ready to chase Sigorney Weaver down some spaceship corridors.
Watch the creature in this video to understand why it could be mistaken for a monster from an alien world.
This species of eel is native to coastal waters and estuaries around India from Bangladesh to Myanmar.
Fear not though as the poor little thing can only grow to around 25 cm and its vicious teeth although very sharp are used for scraping algae off rocks.
Is it just me or is it that the more you look at the video, the cuter it gets?
