Strange Creature Was Found in the Pack of Shrimps

Some guy boiled those shrimps and started eating but then he got something on his plate that was NOT a shrimp. So, we’ve naturally have a question to all fishers – WHAT’s this?

    First – yum!

    • axisdevil says:

      it’s a janitor fish. look it up on google

      • 00-Joe says:

        thats not a janitor fish its dorsal fin is on it tail instead of its back like a janitor fish.

        and its not a baby sturgeon because sturgeon have an extended snout and the mouth is on the underside of it. this fish has a normally hinged jaw

    • Kay says:

      It is a seahorse. I have seen them many a time. I live on the Gulf Coast.

  2. vinterriket says:

    It looks like some kind of sturgeon baby. Nothing to worry about.

  3. Jef Claes says:

    Baby seamonster.

  4. G. Kovalo says:

    Yep. Sturgeon. BTW, (if anyone catches my drift on this), who’s on first.

  5. Mitch says:

    It’s a fish.

  6. Testicules says:

    What’s on second

  7. Brent says:

    It looks like a seahorse actually…

  8. Dan says:

    Its a Gobi, our Canadian waterways are now infested with these fish from the bilge tanks of russian tankers.

  9. George Bush says:

    On english russia everything is strange.
    maybe we should get them a book on different land and water species

  10. Scarecrow says:

    Dragon, a small one.

  11. mukmika says:

    Did it taste as good as the shrimp? If it does, you might be on to something.

  12. uma says:


  13. cr says:

    Highly fascinating, I had to look this up. It’s indeed a prawn goby (symbiosis with prawns), which failed to warn one of the shrimps on the plate :-)

  14. muzzer says:

    Its an alien

  15. Kirov says:

    It’s a rectal parasite, maybe from a fisherman that was involved in shrimp fishing. Bon appetit!!

  16. Hunter 38 says:

    could be a remora.

  17. malacyman says:

    it’s not a sturgeon . sturgeon have a mouth on the very bottom, the mouth has no teeth and is completely round

  18. obvious says:

    It’s a seahorse

  19. yyn says:

    that is poor seahorse..

  20. Baby of the Dragon Head Yellow Fish.

    Soendoro Soetanto

  21. Phreekoid says:

    It’s a gurnard, Bernard.

    • Ziona says:

      I also believe that it’s a gurnard. It’s certainly not a seahorse. The snout is much too short for that.

      • 00-Joe says:

        i would agree, however the gurnard also has a distinctive dorsal fin and no bony plates or ridges like the those on this fish

  22. DX punker says:

    the head looks like a dragon…

    but the body is like a fish…

  23. Yo says:

    its a Farlowella Cat Fish. might be a royal

  24. slandin says:

    that’s a seahorse. the curl tail becomes straight when they are dead for some incident.

  25. kryon says:

    It’s a booger!!

  26. calahan says:

    It is a demon fish and if U eat it, you will shoot sparks through your *ss. Actually,,,,it is pretty cool looking. Wear it a medallion.

  27. ame says:

    ya, i looked at pictures of all of the suggestions, and it looks the most like a farowella catfish to me

    • 00-Joe says:

      agreed, it is MOST like the Farlowella, however again the farlowella has a dorsal fin which is quite close the head and it also lacks any dorsal depression along the body, like what is seen in the photo. however it seems possible that it could be a close relative and the dorsal depression seen in the pic may be the result of being dead and dried out.

  28. Mambazo says:

    It’s a stretched-out sea-horse.

  29. ardee says:

    Like a goby. Goby fish share burrows with shrimp, forming a symbiotic relationship. A shrimp has poor eyesight and their partner goby “patrols” the vicinity of their burrow. When a threat arises, like the arrival of a predator, the goby alerts the shrimp with a flick of its tail and they both retreat inside the burrow for safety.

  30. slava says:

    Effects of the Chernobyl disaster…

  31. BC says:

    it’s a fish, they aren’t that strange…

  32. 00-Joe says:

    so far it seems to most closely resemble a variation nearest to a bay pipefish

  33. crazyrooski says:


  34. smart says:

    it’s a straightened sea-horse, clearly!

  35. yaw anane says:

    its called posinar. there is plenty of it off the gulf of guinea around Ghana

  36. Drinkupyea says:

    It’s Babel Fish! as in hitchhikers’ guide to the galaxy.


    looks similiar though

  37. DrFaustusXI says:

    I am torn apart between a new species or a mind controlling parasite that bites you on the hind-head then you are at his mercy like the real cat related parasite toxoplasma gondii which makes you a cat lover. This is a fact look it up technically it makes you more fond of a cats stench leading to cat-philia.

    By the way I am not actually saying I do believe this thing that came in some guys shrimp is a controlling parasite just saying that if it jumped towards me I would be really frightened. But the cat-o-philia causing parasite is as real as cats them selves.

    • John says:

      It only makes animals hunted by cats more attracted to them. It causes delayed reaction time and schizophrenia in humans.

  38. Epic says:

    It’s Jesus.

  39. uric says:

    My brother..OH…no! That’s my brother,You..human!! Look wht have u done 2 my Lovely brother..All fish bless you…

  40. ROB says:

    It’s a pipe fish; google it.

  41. Maux says:

    Farlowella. not a seahorse, a goby, or a tuna.

  42. Rob says:

    It looks like a ancient fish.

  43. M says:

    Ita a…… HOAX! Godblime!

  44. Shaofutzer says:

    It is not a pipefish, farlowella, seahorse, goby, tuna, whatever… It’s called a Grandiose Vermelter and they’re only found in the Baltic Sea. Very rare to catch an intact specimen as they are known to turn themselves inside out upon capture.

  45. Augutus430 says:

    I’ll find it for 3,000 but i’ll catch it and kill it for 10.
    10 thou you get the head, the tail, the whole damn fish

  46. MattyS says:

    It’s a Mud Skipper…

  47. Jaime says:

    its a dead sea horse, depending on how they die they can straighten right out

  48. Bouy Lee Chow says:

    They sell this at kitchens stores.Its a takes off the shell and deveins the shrimp. Its not a living thing . They sure got yall on this one.

  49. Krakka says:

    lol a dead seahorse straightened out ? come on..

    It’s a Agonus cataphractus…


  50. Chico Iguana says:

    It’s a Dover Sole. Rolled up.

  51. smartazz says:

    I’ll take dead fish for $500. Alex…

  52. rockman says:

    It’s a pokemon.

  53. Soendoro Soetanto says:

    It looks like a baby dragon.

  54. Sam says:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agonus_cataphractus, it is Commons as a by-catch when one is Fishing for Prawns, totally harmless
