Rare Sea Creature Washes Ashore

Rare Salmon Has Huge Head, Eyes

A rarely seen marine animal recently washed up on a Washington state beach.

IMAGES: Monster Of The Deep?  

A retired biologist found the creature on a beach near Port Angeles, Wash. It's big head and bulging eyes make it look like something out of Jules Verne's "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea," but it is actually a deep-water fish known as King of the Salmon.

Scientists say that sightings of the animal are rare, but it is known to live in the Pacific Ocean in the water from Alaska to Baja California, Mexico.

Government marine biologists will examine the Washington specimen to learn more about it.
