Meet the Sarcastic Fringehead

Sometimes we don't know what's weirder: nature's strange creations or the ridiculous names we humans give them. That is certainly the case with the Sarcastic Fringehead (Neoclinus blanchardi).

If you happen to spy one skulking away in whatever shell, rocky crevice or piece of rubbish they can find, they're typically seen as a dull brown boggle-eyed sockpuppet of a fish. It has also been called "spectacularly ugly" in scientific literature.

But if you take a closer look, or just keep watching for a while, these notoriously grumpy critters may just reveal a few surprises.

Spectacularly horrifying is an understatement. It looks like something straight out of a 1950s Sci-Fi movie.
