Magnifique monster monk!

This monster monk from the deep must have given the crew a shock as it came over the top of the hauler! - reminiscent of Turner's, 'Sunrise and Sea Monsters' - which, by coincidence, is currently on show at the St Ives Tate 'Aquatopia' exhibition that runs until the 26th of January 2014.

North sea divers working on well heads, rigs and pipelines have all had scary moments when giant monk lunge at them from being half hidden in sand!
