    Went looking for more info on the sheepshead fish with the human looking teeth (VERY strange) that was mentioned in a previous post, and came across this pic...



    Can anyone tell me what it is?

    I've seen this pic before, but I don't recall what it is. (Besides super gross!) I don't think it's a blobfish, which is equally gross.

    Hmmm, I'm gonna see what I can find...:;st

    ew... Looks if the fish ate a human head and it got stuck at its throat or something. I wouldn't even dare to touch it.

    Wow jgon, you were the one with the sheepshead pic too - are you an expert on strange and ugly fish or just a google expert?

    Haha. Sorry gunner, I'll be sure to ask first next time ;D

    marine biology is super-cool.
  17. scatty Member Member

    Ahhhhhh!....that explains it! And yes, I'm jealous too, I would love to have done marine biology, ended up in food science instead.

    So really.....a SMOOTH LUMPSUCKER?? I guess it suits its name, but who comes up with these names??!!!??!
