“What the hell, what is that? Mom!”
A fisherman was left thunderstruck after catching a bulbous-headed slimy creature from the Atlantic Ocean.
The three-legged creature was seen with a fishing line in its large and scary mouth after it was captured off Conley Island in Brooklyn.
Video shows the animal writhing around on the fishing boat, twisting its three slimy legs.
The fisherman can be heard screaming in the video: “What the hell, what is that? Mom! Mom, do you see this?”
The three-legged creature has slits for gills and appeared to look at the camera.
“Holy s***! What the hell is that?” the fisherman’s mother screamed. Her son replied: “What is happening?”
The video was shared online by Nataliia Vorobok and has gained more than 1.4 million likes. People were also quick to ask the three-legged creature’s welfare.
“Put it back in the water!!!!” one internet user commented.
“If it has a high-pitched voice, the ability to roll it’s eyes rapidly and has a sense of entitlement, this very well could be a incarnation of my ex-mother-in-law,” another wrote.
“I grew up at Coney Island. Every summer we’d hang out on the beach there & swim in the ocean. I don’t know if we’d have done that if we knew such creatures were in there!” a third said.
“Whatever it is, you are not going to eat it and it is dying in front of your eyes! Take the hook out and put it back in the water where it belongs!” someone else added.
