One scary fish...

Yikes!

...that's enough, I can't cope.

  8. I think it's a Monk Fish (check Google Images). There is one hanging on one of the fish counters at Pike Place Market, Seattle. It has a string so the fish mongers can make it move to scare the tourists! The one there is about 2 feet long! One very ugly fish.

    1. I think you could be right Kate...just taken a look at some google pics and it did look like a Monk fish. Makes me respect fishermen all the more now, if they have to deal with catching things like this, oh boy!!!!
