The Wolf Eel Is Pure Nightmare Fuel, Chopped Head Bites Through Coke Can

Aw hellllll no.

I couldn’t fall asleep last night, and lucky for me, landed on this nightmare fuel while browsing Reddit.

The Wolf Eel.

The native of the North Atlantic Ocean is also called Atlantic wolffish, seawolf, devil fish (fitting), Atlantic catfish (nothing like the ones we grew up catching), ocean catfish, just to name a few. Absolutely terrifying, straight out of an alien movie.

Look at this cutie trying to give the fisherman a nice little smooch…

In Iceland, the name translates to “stone biter” as the fish eats hard-shell crustaceans and mollusks, sea urchins, and large hermit crabs.

Or in this case, the decapitated head is thirsty for a Coke.

Seriously – even after its head is chopped clean off, it still tears through an unopened Coca-Cola…

Terrifying. And if you think it’s just one photo or video, think again.

Here’s an up close look under the water.
