Creature of the Sea

Professor Bernie Tershy - biologist, conservationist, and waterman extraordinaire - stumbled upon this creature of the sea while walking back from surfing his favorite north coast reef break.

This wacky deep ocean dweller is a Longnose lancetfish (Alepisaurus ferox) and by the looks of those chompers you wouldn't want to compete with this guy for a wave.

Bernie is a firm practicioner of trying to make the world a better place and today he came through by stoking out the neighborhood with his rare find. For more on Bernie's conservation capers check out the Croll-Tershy Lab.
