A strange-looking fish with human-like lips and teeth was caught last Sunday by a local fisherman off the coasts of Sykia in Halkidiki, northern Greece.
The 45-year-old fisherman told ANA-MPA that the 40-cm-long fish had a round shape, rough skin and weighted roughly 700 grams.
“I haven’t seen anything like it before,” he said, “it managed to survive outside the water for more than five hours. It had an unusual skin and gills were absent replaced by a tiny opening it used in breathing.”
The fish, believed to have migrated to the area from warmer waters, will be examined in Aristotle University laboratories in Thessaloniki to determine its origin.
