A weird alien fish with glowing green evil eyes and wings has stunned the whole world.
Caught by fisherman Scott Tanner, in Canadian waters off Newfoundland and Labrador’s Grand Banks, the crew on board his boat all said they’d never seen anything like it
Sharing the images on Facebook, the 23-year-old says no one was able to name it.
“It stood out right away with the green eyes,” said Tanner.
“Everybody was pretty amazed by it. The older guys, even, said they’d never seen one before.”
With its bright green eyes, wing-like fins and sharp pointed nose, the alien creature has baffled online commenters too.
Redditors said: “Put it back, the mothership is bound to come looking for it,” and it was something “straight out of my nightmares”.
Andrew Hebda, curator of zoology at the Museum of Natural History in Halifax, told the Toronto Sun he believed it could be a “knifenose chimera” .
Greek myth defines a chimera as a lion, with the head of a goat arising from its back, and a tail that might end with a snake’s head, but in real life, chimeras are a primitive, cartilaginous fish related to sharks.
