Strange Horned Fish With Legs Found In Darwin Waters
When you talk of the bizarre, the strange horned fish with legs found in Darwin waters comes to mind at the moment. Fishermen found the prehistoric-like creature at a ‘secret spot’ close to Darwin’s maritime boundary with Indonesia in a sea depth stretching 30 metres. The strange specimen was identified by experts as an armoured sea robin.
The mysterious fish-prawn hybrid with horned skin and spiked gills and bulging eyeballs, is a rare species of fish found only in deep tropical waters. It’s understood it frightened the living daylights out of the fishermen living them baffled. Unlike other fish, armoured sea robins also have feet which they use to scuttle around the ocean floor. The fish uses its thickened, stiff fin rays to skulk along the bottom instead of swimming.
