Black Dragonfish Looks More Like A Real-Life Chestburster
Do you remember the Chesburster, that creepy creature from the Alien movie that jumps into people and eat their way into the body through the chest and turn those people into eggs to breed more aliens? Now I’m happy to introduce a real-life version of that creature, the Black Dragonfish.
Black Dragonfish are a type of fishes that lives 2000 m deep down below the sea. They are very long. Females grow at about 45cm and males only 5 cm. Despite their creepy familiar looks to the Chestburster Alien creature, they do not feed on humans. They just eat other fishes.
I’m not really sure if the creature on the movie was created inspired by this creature or not. But this Black Dragonfish does look more like the Chestburster. What do you think? Can there be more aliens among us?
