A video has emerged that purports to show a Thai fisherman's horrifying surprise catch - a pale, toothy, writhing fish that looks like a mash-up of several species of deep-sea monster, The Mirror reported.

The video poster claimed that the footage was of an eel-like fish caught in Thailand, and asked LiveLeak users if they knew what it was.

But in response he got a barrage of abuse from commenters who said that instead of filming it and prodding it with a stick the fisherman ought to have thrown it back into the sea.

The fish can be seen wriggling back and forth and, at one point, clamping its gasping jaws around the stick.
