This is Chirolophis Japonicus that lives in the Japanese sea in the Russian Far East. Despite its scary look, this fish isn’t scared of divers. You can even touch it or feed it, if you’re lucky enough to meet it in shallow waters.

This fish enjoys eating octopus and its legs in particular. The fish may reach 70 cm in length. Its yellow horns allow the fish to hide between seaweed and stones on the seabed.
