Terror From the Deep

So a cursed fisherman hauled in this monstrosity while fishing  off the Singaporean island of Pulau Ubin:

So the obvious question is: What the fuck is that thing!?

According to Discovery News, it’s likely a basket star, an invertebrate related to a starfish. Basket stars start out with five arms, from which smaller appendages sprout over over time. The creatures can re-grow their limbs which have small sharp hooks on them to capture prey — if someone or something breaks them off.

Not that I’m going anywhere near that thing.
