This bizarre creature was hauled in by a Singaporean fishermen while angling off the Singaporean island of Pulau Ubin.
“I know that area has a lot of seaweed, so I thought that was what I had hooked up,” 53-year-old Ramlan Saim told Singapore’s newspaper The Straits Times.
“But then when I put it on the boat it started to move like an alien.”
Discovery News identified the creepy creature as ‘basket star’. Not an alien creature or new species.
