Scientists Have Found The First Ever Living Ghost Fish And It Looks Straight Out Of A Mario Bros. Cave

Until recently scientists had only ever found dead specimens of the extremely elusive Ghost Fish, an eery looking specimen of the family Aphyonidae that looks to be equal parts eel, tadpole, and cave villain from Super Mario Bros. (I at least think this thing looks like a cross between a squid and a ghost in the game).

So scientists caught the first ever glimpse of a living ghost fish, and it was a depth of around 8,200 feet/2,500 meters. And this wasn’t just the first time the Ghost Fish was spotted alive, it’s actually the first time in history that any fish from the family Aphyonida has been seen alive:
