It was originally only photographed one time in the Gulf of Mexico last year, the New York Times reported.
But now it has been found swimming, or floating, in the waters of the Southern Ocean, 2,500 miles from Australia, the Times reported.
So how did the researchers get the rare images of the creature?
The camera attaches to toothfish longlines in the Southern Ocean, CNN reported. A toothfish longline is used to catch the fish using weighted lines that sink in the deep water, according to the Australian Fisheries Management Authority.
The camera attached to the line operates for a long time, under the pressure of the water depths, and is in pitch black surroundings, CNN reported.
