The Story Behind the Samurai Faced Heikegani

Sea creatures could take on strange shapes. While watching episodes in nature shows (National Geographic Channel and Discovery), it’s not uncommon for us to see oddities in oceans and seas. You don’t need to look for cryptids to find nature’s weirdos. Evolution gave these creatures unworldly appendages. I mean oarfishes are harmless, but I won’t get close to that 20-foot elongated sea serpent look-alike. Then, there is the wolf eel. They taste great, and resemble a mythical snake with human head.
