(Nov. 24, 2014) – This may just give you nightmares.

Researchers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute captured first-ever video of a fish called the black seadevil.

They spotted it last week 1,900 feet below the surface, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

The fish projects a glowing “fishing pole” from its head to attract prey in deep water.

“We’ve been diving out here in the Monterey Canyon regularly for 25 years, and we’ve seen three,” Bruce Robison, research division chairman of the aquarium’s research institute, told the newspaper.
