Why do people find this thing scary?
I can understand the fear associated with some residents of the deep oceans, not to mention the sea creatures which operate above this depth. God
knows a Great White shark will put the frightners on a great majority of people if found to be sharing bathing locations with an example of that
However, this critter, while a bit on the otherworldly side, looks like it does not have the capacity to straight up consume, nor critically injure a
person. Now, it may have some abilities that I have not understood, perhaps its tendrils are coated in suckers which bite into flesh and deliver the
most potent natural neurotoxin on the planet. I have no idea. But in terms of its appearance alone, I can think of several critters which not only
make a new set of underwear necessary, but ARE actually capable of murdering the crap out of you, and consuming your rapidly cooling corpse before the
flies even get a look in.
Hell, pigs are more concerning to me than this little fellow, and I eat pig on a regular basis. A bunch of pigs can eat a man bones and all. I
certainly would not want to check out that way. This underwater oddity looks like I could crush its brain in one fist, right through its skin, if I
figured out where the hell it kept the thing. I would much rather have to defend myself against one of these than say, a shark, or a box jellyfish for
that matter, and I have always found jellyfish to be particularly whimsical looking things!
