It looks like some kind of pokemon. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

Thats a batfish, a species of deep sea creature that lives in the midnight zone. They use their fins like legs to crawl on the ocean floor.

By the time they could even get one to your house it would be dead. They require the water pressure in the midnight zone for survival. A comparison to that would be if you had 2.5-3 SUVs stacked on your big toe.

Yes, thanks, I'm aware of the impossibility of this being done, barring an intensely high pressured tank to simulate the benthic environment they'd require. Just sayin'....
