Top 10 Most Weird Fish in The Ocean That Actually Exist

from the fish with a snake’s head to
one-eyed freaks of nature fish the blue parrotfish is found in shallow waters on
coral reefs in tropical and subtropical areas of the western Atlantic Ocean and
the Caribbean Sea they are as their name suggests blue in color with a yellow
spot on their head which fades as they get older they grow to an average size
of 30 to 75 centimeters although some do grow to 1.2 meters they have a large
beak that is used for scraping algae and other small organisms from rocks with
their teeth they can grind rocks that they ingest into sand during the summer
the blue parrotfish gather into spawning groups and after sexual interaction
occurs the females deposit their eggs which then sink to the seabed the eggs
will then hatch about 25 hours later the blue parrotfish
is found in water ranging from 3 to 25 metres deep from Maryland in the USA to
bermuda the bahamas and as far south as brazil they are abundant in the
caribbean but do not appear anywhere in the gulf of mexico their young can be
found sheltering in beds of turtle grass around 80% of the time they are
searching for food a big thank you to all you guys who leave us comments for
today’s video we are giving a big shout-out to pixie moonlight 9 pig nose
sturgeon this fish is a monster wayna reputed 650 pounds and was caught in
2016 before being released back into the Fraser River in canada’s british
columbia pig nose is more than ten feet long five feet in girth and it has been
happily living in the depths of the Fraser River for an estimated 80 years
this strange shape of its nose could be from a fight or accident at some point
in its life white sturgeons are now an endangered species but mostly because of
overfishing they generally grow to around five feet in length although the
biggest white sturgeon recorded weighed in at almost 18
pounds was 20 feet long and said to be 104 years old so pig nose still has some
growing to do to beat that record eight cyclops bull shark when a fisherman
discovered an unborn one-eyed Cyclops shark inside a pregnant dusky shark in
the Gulf of California many people were skeptical as to the authenticity of this
creature the malformed creature would probably
have not survived once it had entered into the world after the remains were
examined by shark researchers it is considered to be an extremely rare event
with fewer than 50 cases of such an abnormality having previously been
recorded other abnormalities recorded in sharks have been of 2-headed embryos
found inside pregnant female sharks when caught it is believed the embryo began
to split as twins but may have failed to split completely due to lack of space
inside the pregnant mother number 7 half fish half bird a creature described as
half fish and half bird surprised the fisherman that caught it in gusu
province in southern China or the fish appeared to have a bird’s head the fish
was later described as being a common freshwater carp yet despite this the
story went viral with speculation that a new half fish half bird had been
discovered with a beak like mouth and fins on its sides giving it the
impression it possessed wings experts were quick to point out that the
unusually shaped head was probably the result of a developmental problem in the
early stages of the fish’s life it was probably caused by a swelling in the
skeletal system which resulted in the mouth tilting downward number six south south or Salva is a
barrel-shaped planktonic Tunica that moves by contracting and then pumping
water through its gelatinous body the system of jet propulsion used by a South
is one of the animal kingdom’s most efficient while pumping water through
its body the internal feeding filters allow it to feed on phytoplankton South
can be found in equatorial water temperate and even in cold seas they can
be seen on the surface singly although usually long stringy colonies they are
found in their greatest numbers in the Southern Ocean near to Antarctica in the
deep waters of the Southern Ocean they are known to form enormous swarms that
are more abundant than krill a single sap is between 1 and 10 centimetres tall
and a single creature can a sexually produce tens of thousands of individuals
which will be released from the parent at a small size they remain attached to
each other in the chain feeding and growing until the food sources become
too inadequate to sustain the chain in 1920 the large number of South entering
into the North Sea led to the failure that year of the herring fishing
industry although they appear to have similarities to jellyfish they are
actually related to vertebrates animals with backbones they are believed to be
an example of how vertebrates evolved and also contain a primitive nervous
system which eventually evolved into the more complex nervous system seen on
vertebrates today five fish snake the fish snake is also known as the
snakehead and is a freshwater fish native to Africa and Asia they are an
elongated predator with long dorsal fins large mouths than shiny teeth the fish
snake is also able to breathe air through its gills allowing them to cover
short distances across land the fish snake is a notorious intentionally
released invasive species becoming very successful due in part to having no
natural predators in those regions it has been introduced into adult fish
snakes will eat other fish hogs and occasionally small mammals such as rats
there are around 40 species of fish snake with the smallest feed the dwarf
snake had growing to just 25 centimetres or 10 inches
most species grow to between 30 and 90 centimeters 12 to 35 inches there are
five species that reach an excess of 1 metre 3 feet 3 inches for Hornet fish
Hornet fish are also known as flute mouths there are four species that be
found in the tropical and temperate waters of the Pacific and Atlantic
oceans they can be found on soft sea floors such as sand flats sea grasses
and coral reefs they possess an elongated snout that ends with a mouth
containing minut teeth at the other end of their body is the end of the backbone
extending to a four tail fin the largest core net fish can grow up to two metres
in length the blue spotted corded fish and the red kornpett fish are found in
the oceans of the Atlantic and western Pacific as well as the Mediterranean Sea
the recorded fish and deepwater Cornette fish are primarily found in the eastern
Pacific Ocean three armored sea Robin the armored sea Robin is also known as
the armored gurnard and is found in deep waters of the world’s tropical regions
they are related to the family of sea Robins in the trig liday family they are
different from sea Robins in that they are encased in heavy scales that feature
prominent spines they also have prominent barbells on their chins
they have large pectoral fin which when they are swimming open and close like a
bird’s wings in flight they are able to glide short distances above the surface
of the water similar to that of a flying fish they prefer to be in deeper water
often down to 200 metres below this surface they measure about 30 to 40
centimetres long with a solid skull when caught they make a croaking noise
similar to a frog to mystery fish this unknown fish was found in a fish market
in Japan it has been researched on several sites but remains without a name do you know what type of fish this is
let us know in the comment section below number one lancet fish the lancet fish
is a large predatory fish also known as a scale us lizard due to its appearance
they can grow up to two metres in length although little is known about this fish
except that it is found in all the world’s oceans except for the polar
regions they have been recorded as far north as Greenland and are often caught
by vessels fishing for tuna there are two species of Landsat fish this short
snout and the long snout both species have relatively long and
pointed snouts the short snout Atlantic fish has a slightly shorter snout than
the other species the main feature of the lancet fish is its high and long
dorsal fin the dorsal fin contains 41 to 44 Ray’s occupying the greater length of
the fish’s back the fin is twice as high as the fish’s deep the mouth is wide
with two or three fang-like teeth on each jaw with numerous smaller teeth
there are no scales present on this fish and the fins are very fragile
