Terror from the deep

A lizard fish, an ambush predator from the deep ocean, is shown in this undated handout picture released on February 21, 2018 by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) and taken by Asher Flatt of the Marine National Facility in Hobart. More than 100 rarely seen fish species were hauled up from a deep and cold abyss off Australia during a scientific voyage, including a kin of the "world's ugliest animal" Mr Blobby.
