Taste It: Freaky Armored Mystery Fish Caught In Malaysia

mystery-fish-from-malaysia.jpg

This is the unidentified mystery fish caught by fisherman Sapar Mansor off the coast of Tudan, Malaysia. I'm not sure I would eat it, but I would. I'll eat almost anything, including playground sand.

The creature has two tusk-like spikes near its mouth and measures over one foot in length. The fisherman's family have taking to calling the creature an 'Armour Fish' due its sharp spines.


His wife added: "It is God's gift and I and my family will keep the fish."

"It is God's gift and I and my family will keep the fish." You do realize if you keep the fish it's going to start to stink, right? It's not like finding a pretty shell on the beach. I kept a dead bird once. Huge mistake.

UPDATE: The fish has been identified as an Armored Searobin, a fish that looks like a cross between a dragon, fish, and Star Wars speeder bike. That Mother Nature -- she's a drinker. Keep going for even freakier pics of the species.

Thanks to chris3278, who's convinced it's the Prometheus fish responsible for bringing life to seafood on the planet.
