An “alien-like” sea creature has been discovered by a fisherman in Singapore that possesses around 100 arms and moves as if it was straight out of a horror film.
54-year-old Ong Han Boon, a deep-sea fisherman, has revealed that he made the discovery while he was at his favorite fishing spot on the island of Sentosa.
According to the Mirror, Boon started his endeavors by throwing out his line with the hope of catching something to eat. He even started to drink several servings of his favorite beer and then, when he eventually learnt that there was something on the end of his line, he started to reel it in and began to dream of what he would be having for food.
However, what he actually pulled out of the water scared him half to death and probably left him without an appetite. You can check out a video, courtesy of the New York Post, of the creature below.
Boon has now been reliving the experience, and he admitted that he actually “got quite excited as [he] hauled it in.”
“I spotted the line going up and down, and feeling a bit peckish I got quite excited as I hauled it in. But when I pulled it out of the water I was completely flummoxed by what I was looking at.”
Boon, who revealed that he was an experienced fisherman, added that it was by far the most peculiar creature he’d ever pulled out of the ocean.
“I’ve had quite a few odd things come from out of the ocean but I have never seen anything like this before in my life. It had all these arms waving around. I thought it look liked an alien or some kind of mutant.”
The deep-sea beast looks as if it has around about 100 moving tentacle-like arms. Boon decided that he would upload a video of his discovery to the internet so that someone can reveal exactly what he found.
“I’ve asked all my friends and none of them know and all my internet searches have not turned up anything that looks like this. So, if no one can identify it then I guess I’m right — it’s either an alien or I’ve discovered a new species of mutant sea creature. That would not surprise me with all the pollution they put in the water nowadays.”
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have previously noted that we have yet to explore 95 percent of the world’s water, even though it covers 71 percent of the Earth.
