Their “Catch” Is Unlike Any Fish You’ve Ever Seen!

Written by Gayne Young on November 27, 2015

Nik Pyselman and Cam Twigley landed a fish unlike any you’ve ever seen.

Unless your an Ichthyologist or something.

The two men were jogging on Fitzroy Beach on New Zealand’s North Island when they encountered a lacetfish floundering in shallow water.

Twigley told the Daily Mail, “It looked like it was struggling a bit to get off the shore. I knew we had stumbled across something out of the ordinary so I grabbed it by the tail and lifted it out.  We were pretty shocked when we got a proper look at it. It’s like a hybrid of a baracoota with its fang-like teeth and a sailfish with its tall fin. I’ve definitely never seen anything like it.”

We’ve never seen anything like it either!

Just how rare a fish is the lacetfish?

We couldn’t even find it on Wikipedia!
