Stomach-churning video shows the moment a mystified angler confronts a freaky sea creature whose sting can cause hours of agonising pain.

Alyssa Ramirez, who landed the bizarre beast while fishing with her mother, initially thought she had pulled up a piece of seaweed when she reeled in her catch.

After pulling up her line, Ms Ramirez filmed the creature squirming on the pier in Port Isabel, in the US state of Texas.

‘When I didn’t feel any bites I assumed the fish had taken my bait – squid – and I reeled in my line to rebait the hook,’ she said.

‘At first glance I thought I snagged some seaweed. Then I laughed because that was definitely not a fish, nor seaweed.
