The blobfish (known scientifically as Psychrolutes marcidus) is of the family Psychrolutidae and lives in the deep sea. It can be found in the waters off the coast of Australia, Tasmania, and also the waters of New Zealand around 2,000 to 3,900 feet (600 and 1,200 meters) deep. With a face just a mother could love, the blobfish eats whatever swims by and was named the “World’s Ugliest Animal” in 2013. Blobfish are commonly shorter than 30 centimeters.
