An 8-year-old boy fishing with his grandfather for > > the first time in made the catch of the century -- a fish with a human face! Puzzled marine biologists say the mysterious creature, which sports a distinctly man-like nose and jagged, eerily human teeth, is like nothing they've ever seen before. Scientists and experts said that they have not yet ascertained whether this fish belongs to a previously unidentified species that has lived in the waters of North America for centuries, is the by-product of genetic tinkering or is a random mutation caused by something in the environment. In other word, they don't know shit. But they do know that this is one of the most spectacular finds in decades.
Officials have launched an investigation, bringing in some scientists and other experts. Some refuse to discuss the case -- or even confirm the discovery of the fish -- until its origins are better understood. Efforts to find and capture another human-faced fish may be in the works.Of course there's got to be more where that one came from.
Early in 2005, a couple of fish with a strikingly human-looking face was found in Korea and was originally published by the Korean Bureau of the Reuters news service. The hybrid species fish were born between a carp and a leather carp in the pond of a personal house in Chongju. Each of the two female fish is 80 cm (32 inches) long and 50 cm (20 inches) in circumference. The owner of the fish said that their faces have begun to look more and more human over the last couple of years. No kidding!
