Many fish have unique and sometimes scary shapes that make them look like monsters. From a bizarre shark to a fish with human-like teeth, the diversity of the underwater world is vast.
One such strange fish was caught by a Thai fisherman with a wide raft body and two legs to walk in the water, making it look like an alien creature. The fisherman was baffled by this unusual catch, and the clip of the fish was widely shared on social media, garnering the attention of many people.
Another fish caught by a fisherman in Scotland was a species of shark called Pseudotriakis microdon, which is extremely rare. The fish was three meters long and weighed 60kg, living at a depth of 1400m and typically feeding on eels, squid, and shrimp.
In 2015, a man named Mr. Rossi and his son caught a fish in New Jersey with human-like teeth, which was later identified as a fish named Pacu. Pacu is related to the piranha but is omnivorous, whereas piranhas are carnivorous.
In August 2013, a fisherman named Mr. Sang caught a fish with a crocodile-like head and sharp teeth, giving it a scary appearance. Mr. Sang had never caught such a strange fish before, and after hitting it on the head, he released it back into the water for everyone to see.
In Canada, Mr. Thomas caught a fish that could glow in the dark, with a fluorescent blue mouth. These fluorescent fish are found in many environments in South America and Europe, and they can adapt to water and swamps.
Lastly, fisherman Hiroshi caught a wolf fish with a wide mouth and black skin, making it look like a scary monster. Wolf fish mainly feed on small creatures to survive, living in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
These unusual and scary-looking fish are a reminder of the diverse and fascinating underwater world that we are still discovering.
