The strange and elusive Black Sea Devil is caught on film for the first time by divers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute has captured what it says are the first images of a female anglerfish, known as a Black Sea Devil.
Deep sea anglerfish are very rarely observed in their natural habitat.
Fewer than half a dozen have ever been captured on film or video by deep diving research vehicles
The Black Sea Devil species is believed to have never been filmed alive in the wild before.
