An ‘alien fish’ caught on a small Caribbean island has left experts baffled, as they struggle to determine its species.
The creature reportedly has ‘feet’ which allows it to walk across the seabed, a ‘ perfect human nose’, and scales like a fish. The sea creature was caught in the port of Windward on the tiny island of Carriacou, a few miles from Grenada. One islander said ‘Everyone crowded round to look – nobody had ever seen anything like it.
‘Quite a few people were pretty scared and thought it looked like something out of a sci-fi horror film.’ Veteran fisherman Hope McLawrence, 74, who found himself staring into the eyes of the ‘alien’ creature when he hauled in his nets, admitted he was astounded and baffled. The foot-long beast had two feet with toes, no fin, a long bone on its back and ‘a perfect human nose immediately above its mouth’ according to Mr McLawrence. FULL REPORT
