In the US, people have been known to catch weird, monster-like fish when fishing

Filipino fishermen, while going fishing, caught a strange creature that had never been known before

The world we live in is full of interesting things, and the more we explore, the more we realize that our knowledge is still limited.

Fishermen caught a strange animal causing a stir

At the end of 2020, on a fairly popular forum called Naira Land, there was a topic that caught a lot of attention from netizens around the story of a mysterious animal caught by fishermen in the US.

According to information on the subject, after catching this animal, because they did not know what it was, they took a photo of it and uploaded it to the network, to see if someone could give them an exact answer.

From the image shared, you can see that the animal has a very strange appearance, even a little scary with lines as if it were a hybrid of several different animals.

Strange animal caught by fishermen in the US

The lower part of the animal’s body has a similar appearance to that of an elephant seal, seal or sea lion. It is grayish in color and weighs a few pounds. However, he has a small yellow tusk sticking out of his nose like that of a small elephant. In addition to the tail, it also has 2 more paddles on both sides of the body to help with swimming.

The animal has an ivory part protruding from its nose.

It is because of this strange appearance that the animal has attracted the attention of a large number of locals. Adults and children alike flocked to see the animal with their own eyes. Many people admit that they have never seen anything like this since they were children.

After all, what is this strange child?

In the forum there are also many conjectures about the identity of the animal.

“It’s very scary, it’s like an alien,” commented one imaginative Internet user.

“It looks like a combination of seals, elephants and pigs,” one person commented.

“I see him again as a cross between a buffalo and a seal,” another commented.

This is a picture of a manatee, and the tail does not look like the animal the fisherman caught.

“I think it’s a manatee. There is nothing strange about it,” another person responded.

“Brother. This is not a manatee, because the bottom looks similar, but the head of this animal is different,” commented another.

“This is a platypus,” responded another.

This is a platypus, bro

“The manatee must have had an adventure with something in the sea and gave birth to this one, because her head looks a little weird,” one amused netizen predicted.

“No, this is a dugong, also known as a sea cow, from the dugong family. “It’s also related to manatees, so it looks a bit like this one, but the most distinctive feature is probably the tail.” Another person gave the most convincing answer yet.

Finally, a Thai website said they also caught a bowfish in Phuket. And from the image shared, you can see that it is exactly the same animal that was caught by fishermen in the Philippines.

Dumplings caught in Phuket

So the exact animal fishermen caught in the US was a bowfish.

According to information from Wikipedia, the dugong, also known as sea cow or fairy fish (scientific name is Dugong) is an animal that lives in the subtropical coastal zone. Dugongs are the only sea cows in their range, which extends across the waters of about 40 countries and territories of the Indo-Western Pacific.

The dumpling fish has a diamond-shaped body, thick skin, color changes depending on the color of the algae attached to the skin, horizontal fins instead of vertical fins like other fish. His eyesight is very poor but his sense of smell is very keen.

The reason dugongs are also called sea cows is because they use their upper lip to graze on ocean grasses. What we think of as fangs are actually their front teeth.
