Odd fishes you didn’t know about

Many of you might find all fish to be disgusting, but I for one never had a problem with how they look, I even found some of them to be really interesting. But I have to say everything changed as soon as I saw these pictures, these things look like monsters out of my worst nightmares!

    HOLY SHIT! Here’s a few more reasons not to go skinny dipping…

  • big daddy al Posted on February 12, 2008

    “The PS3 is a waste of everybodys time” – Gabe Newell .. Most recently with the relase of Devil May Cry 4 the PS3 version requires 5 gig’s of data be stored on the hard drive just so the PS3 version can keep up with the 360 .. I find this very telling of the lies regarding the systems power Sony would have you believe.

    The eye on that blobfish looks eerily human for my liking.

  • mierda Posted on February 12, 2008

    mierda mierda mierda meirda mierda LOL digg suks

  • shane Posted on February 12, 2008

    Perhaps because I know a little more about them, but Basking sharks are not scary at all. Like many whales, they are filter feeders. They are completely non-predatory and non-threatening… Huge, but very peaceful.

    Grenadiers and Lampreys on the other hand, make me shudder just thinking about them.

  • Psh Posted on February 12, 2008

    Gabe just hates the PS3 because he can’t do anything with it. The reason the PS3 version “allows” a 5 gig download is to remove loading times. The X360 can’t do that.

    Ugly [email protected]@rds aren’t they?

  • xamax Posted on February 12, 2008

  • jake Posted on February 12, 2008

    I thought the plural form of fish was fish, not “fishes”.

  • Mac Posted on February 12, 2008

    lmao goblin cock

    you got me on that one
    props lol

  • alcoholism Posted on February 12, 2008

    the first one just looks mean as hell. I think I would be more scared of it than a shark.

  • N-Word Jim Posted on February 12, 2008

    Cars-carsel carzy-crate crazy sturfe-stuff stuff here *cough* ahh look at that that mommy its a N3Gr0! :()->–<

  • fish lover Posted on February 12, 2008

    the ultimate question is? are any of those edible and what do they taste like?

  • Tom Posted on February 12, 2008

    Its wolf eel not wolf fish.

  • Marc Savoy Posted on February 12, 2008

    Wow. Some of these like the lamprey look like they’ve
    been created in some special effects studio and could
    pass for being extra-terrestrial.

  • fishing tips pro Posted on February 12, 2008

    I’d have to say that the Frilled Shark, and the Basking Shark are the two creepiest fishes.

    I’d definitely panic if I was caught in the water with any of those guys.

  • Radoman Posted on February 12, 2008

    Meh… Not really too scary, though the Goliath Tiger Fish teeth are impressive. Fish tend to be less aggressive with things near their own size or bigger. I mean, ya know, there are Great Whites in every ocean. That Tiger Fish wouldn’t even be a morsel….

    The ocean seems to love to hide the really scary stuff away. Giant Squid and the like. (Suckers as big as dinner plates) The Coelacanth was thought to be extinct for something like 65 million years, yet they have recently been rediscovered.

    Like most humans, I fear the unknown. Frankly, we know more about the surface of the moon than the depths of our own oceans.

    I can attest to seeing some inexplicable stuff in the deep…

    Who knows what’s out there? Scuba anyone?

  • Sage Posted on February 12, 2008

    a dork is a whale penis.

    no sereously! no JK here!

  • robbie schmelzer Posted on February 14, 2008

    Nice stuff, if you need animal images check out my site!

  • Jon Winter Posted on February 23, 2008

    I cannot help but feel sadness looking at these dead creatures. They are part of the world we live in and we
    all know what we are doing to the world we live in.

  • marini Posted on February 23, 2008

    lamprey is not a fish

  • The Baldchemist Posted on February 24, 2008

    Why the fuck – kill them?

  • me Posted on February 24, 2008

    cool pics…..just another example why i hate the ocean.

    and btw fishes refers to a collection of different types of fish, and fish is plural for the individuals. “fishes of the see” refers to the different species, and “fish of the see” would refer to them all in an individual sense regardless of variety. So long story short, the title is technically correct .

  • Bob Posted on March 4, 2008

    The plural form of fish really sounds like it *should* be ‘fish’, but it actually is ‘fishes’. Which sounds terrible and always irks me.

    The Lamprey is an incredibly ancient species, it’s hardly evolved for several hundred million years; it attaches itself leech-like to fish and sucks their blood. Horrible things.

  • Caffeine Posted on March 4, 2008

    Wow! Those are ugly critters.

  • this guy Posted on March 9, 2008

    Wow. How many circles of hell did you have to go through to bring back those specimens?

  • kate Posted on March 9, 2008

    the plural of fish changes depending on how youre referring to them, fish of one species are called fish, ‘there are a great many angel fish in that tank’ whereas if youre talking about many including different species, then its fishes, ‘there are many different kinds of fishes in that tank’……. its like people and peoples ‘many people in this square’ vs ‘the many peoples of the earth’
    and thats your english lesson for today

  • Jenn Posted on March 10, 2008

    oh god a lot of them are terrifying!

  • mathis Posted on March 13, 2008

    who kind of idiot doesn’t know about these?

  • Larry Posted on March 14, 2008

    man, I’d hate to have one of them at the end of my line!!!

  • s. joe dare Posted on March 15, 2008

    one night I got drunk and ended up with one of those lampreys on my dick. when I woke up the next morning she was gone and all I had left was some fond memories and of course the scars

  • eric Posted on March 18, 2008

    hey, im totally familiar with that band

  • eric Posted on March 18, 2008

    goblin cock, that is

  • Dont worry about who I am Posted on March 28, 2008

    To the guy correcting people on fish vs fishes… try checking your usage on the word “see”.

  • Jon Posted on April 14, 2008

    Pretty sure the Lamprey starred in “Dream Catcher”.
    But until now I had been calling them shit weasels.

  • Minna Posted on April 18, 2008

    Sorry, but miss Grammar Police could also learn how to use apostrophes.

  • trey Posted on May 7, 2008

    i’m freakin pissed that you guys killed these fish.
    they are rare.
    i’m a veterenarian.
    can’t believe you.


  • tyler Posted on June 5, 2008

    those are some weird fish. never ever kill fish.

  • edenscapes Posted on June 5, 2008

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the beholder must be blind!

  • Fossiltalk Posted on June 15, 2008

    uuugh at least someone here knows what they’re talking about

  • melle Posted on July 7, 2008

    if lamprey is wat we in Portugal call lampreia, than it is not dangerous at all (at least I have never heard of an lamprey attack). By the way, its common to eat it in Portugal

  • someone Posted on July 12, 2008

    those fish are terrifying

  • ralph Posted on July 15, 2008

    You ask “What do they taste like?”….remember what you mommy used to tell you, “just try it, they taste like chicken!”
