Male and Female Devil Fish.

Totem Pole Trading Post

One of the things that is a "must see" at the Totem Pole is the glass case containing male and female Devil-Fish. The label says "Yes, They're real!" The clerk informed us they were caught by a woman off the coast of Texas years ago. No explanation as to how they ended up at the Totem Pole.
