A fisherman who captured a growling wolf fish said the monstrous sea creature "killed everything in the trap" it was caught in.
Jacob Knowles, an angler from Maine, US, pulled in the huge fish, also known as the devil fish, before watching it crush a lobster in its strong jaws.
In a clip posted on his Instagram, the angry fish is seen desperately trying to bite Knowles with its razor sharp teeth as he grapples with it.

"It's trying to bite me. They can bite too," he said, struggling with the large specimen.
He went on: “It killed everything in the trap. We don't get them very often, they're protected. We let them go as soon as we get them. I guess we'll give him a snack seeing as he's already killed everything.”
"I'm scared," Knowles said as he dodged the fish's jaws.
He then gives the angry fish a dead lobster, which it clasps onto before being tossed back into the sea.
The clip was also shared on TikTok where it garnered over 3.2 million views and 407k likes.

The Atlantic wolf fish can grow up to five feet long and weigh up to 50lbs, mainly feeding on smaller fish and crustaceans.
In a caption on the TIkTok video, the fisherman wrote: "No TikTok this is not dangerous. We handle #seacreatures every day, we are professionals."
One TikTok user wrote: "Omg I never knew fish could make that kind of noise,"
A second commented: "The thing literally growled like a dragon in the beginning", while a third added: "Dude bit the lobster like it was nothing lmao."
