The Worlds Funniest-Looking Fish(Yes, It's Actually Real!!)


BLOBFISH

The blobfish (Psychrolutes marcidus) is a fish that inhabits the deep waters off the coasts of Australia and Tasmania. Due to the inaccessibility of its habitat, it is rarely seen by humans.
Blobfish are found at depths where the pressure is alot higher than at sea level, which would likely make gas bladders inefficient(Whatever that means). To remain above the seafloor, the flesh of the blobfish is primarily a gelatinous(JELL-O!!!!) mass wich weighs slightly less than water; this allows the fish to float above the sea floor without wasting energy on swimming. The relative lack of muscle is not a disadvantage as it primarily swallows edible matter that floats by in front of it. The picture on the right is a regular blobfish, I've named him Squidward because he looks like Squidward. The picture on the left is our " Rough and Tough" blobfish but I call him B.A. for short. He looks like my hamster. And they all lived happily ever after. THE END
