Ever See A Rhinochimera Fantasia Fish?

THIS is a video of a Rhinochimera.

The name Rhinochimera breaks apart with meaning: rhinos = nose and chimaera = marine monster, but this fish has many names. (Our favorite: straightnose rabbitfish.) This one is swimming in Hydrographer Canyon, deep in the Atlantic Ocean, and was filmed on a Okeanos Explorer Northeast U.S. Canyons Expedition dive.
