Bizarre types of fish in the ocean

What are some amazing-looking fish?

There are innumerable candidates for this question, but here are some of which I can think of off the top of my head.

(1) Lancetfish

 Little is known about the biology of this family of fish, which contains only two species.

They can be very big, over 2 meters long in some cases, and are probably ambush predators which eat other fish, cephalopods, and crustaceans.

They’re found the world over, except for polar waters.

(2) Jellynoses

Also known as tadpole fish, they get their name from the gelatinous tissue which fills their body.

Deep sea creatures which feed on invertebrates living on the seafloor, they’ve lost most of their bone, instead having skeletons of mainly cartilage. They’re pretty big too, at up to 2 meters in length.

(3) Kaluga

This sturgeon is quite possibly the world’s largest freshwater fish, at up to 5.6 meters long and weighing as much as a small car!

They live only in the rivers of the Amur Basin in eastern Russia and China and are the apex predators of their environment.

As they’re not fussy eaters, I wonder if they eat the Amur softshell turtles which they co-exist with.

(4) Flying gurnard

This fish, native to coastal waters in the Atlantic, is immediately noticeable, as it has very long pelvic fins.

When alarmed, these fins fan out into huge, semicircular “wings”, which are translucent and often have blue patterns on them. It might seem exotic, but if you live on the Atlantic it’s probably not far offshore.

(5) Sea robins 

This family is most amazing to me because of their six, arthropod-like legs, which evolved from fin-rays.

They use these to crawl around and also to smell. However, If that wasn’t weird enough, some species are armor-plated, they make drumming sounds with a muscle in their body and can glide using beautifully colored fins.

(6) Chinaman-leatherjacket

Don’t be fooled by this fish’s unassuming appearance – it’s one of the scariest ray-finned fish I know of.

They have extremely sharp teeth and have been known to rip octopuses apart in swarms. They also kill fish as big as marlins, can crush fish hooks in their jaws, and occasionally bite unfortunate divers.

(7) Flabby whalefish

Among the deepest-living fish, these bright red monsters are damn weird. Many species are blind, instead relying on detecting vibrations to navigate.

Strangest of all, the males only eat when they’re babies – after becoming adults, their mouths fuse shut and they slowly metabolize shells eaten as juveniles.

Thanks for reading, and hopefully you enjoyed learning about these bizarre types of fish in the ocean which I think could use a little more attention.

Killer whales(Orcas) are known to torpedo from below at top speeds by ramming the sides of the whales with their heads.

The orcas’ obsession with tongues is well documented; on several occasions, it has been the sole or nearly the only thing they eat from their massive preys.

Why Do Lions Always Kill Cheetahs?

Why Do Lions Always Kill Cheetahs?

Cheetahs get their prey easily compared to lions. Due to this competition, lions may feel that they do not have enough food due to the presence of cheetahs. The natural habitat of lions is also native to cheetahs. Since they live in close proximity, lions will attack or kill cheetahs in territorial disputes.

Here’s What Happens If You Feed a Camel With a Venomous Snake

Camels are fed with live snakes. Because there is a special kind of disease in their body. Due to which his whole body becomes stiff. To avoid this disease, Utahars(camel owner) feed live snakes to camels.

Although, there is no scientific proof that eating a snake can cure an animal’s disease.

Perhabs this is some type of hocus pocus probably practiced in rural places in the Middle East.!
