This super rare and terrifying Pacific fish was washed up on a California beach recently and instantly sent the internet into wild panic. Which is fair enough – just look at it!
Looking like something from a very real-life horror film, the jet-black 18-inch wide fish with tentacles and razor-sharp teeth washed ashore on Newport Beach last week.
The black beast is actually one of the 300 species of anglerfish. And, keen-eyed Pixar fans, might recognise it from Finding Nemo.
They are extremely rare, which is good news for beach-goers. They live in near pitch-black conditions 3,000ft under the water and are rarely captured.
They use the dangly bulbs at the front of their head to lure in prey. Their phosphorescent bulbs glow underwater thanks to light-emitting bacteria who then literally swim into their mouth.
Jeff Bezos buys yacht that’s so big it needs its own ‘support yacht’
Staying in the nautical world, Jeff Bezos has bought a yacht that’s so big it needs its own yacht to get to it.
The world’s richest man has just bought an enormous 417-foot super-yacht for $500 million. The yacht does have three decks and three huge masts. Which means it can’t have a Helipad to get on and off the ship.
So, amusingly, Jeff Bezos needs to cover the cost of the ‘support yacht’ needed to reach his yacht according to Bloomberg.
Then again, considering Bezos is now worth around $200 billion, an increase of $75 billion in the last year alone, he might not be too worried about that. It is, as you could say, just a drop in the ocean.
The superyacht is believed to be one of the largest in the world and is set for completion in Holland next month.
And with borders closing and privacy at a premium, building your own superyacht makes all the sense in the world for the super-rich. Some can even cruise for 9,000 miles before needing to refuel, making them floating palaces.
Meanwhile, 2020 has been such a good year for DubaiLAD we’ve been able to buy our own blow-up dinghy!
