Mysterious fish caught by fisherman in Malaysia


A fisherman from Malaysia caught a mysterious fish in the South China Sea that features a large head, a nose with two sharp spears and sharp spines covering its foot-long body.

Fisherman Sapar Mansor from Taman Ceria, Permyjaya was at a loss to identify the weird-looking fish, as were many others.

“This is the first time in my life that I have seen this type of fish,” Mansor told The Borneo Post. “I brought it home to my wife and informed her of the rare catch.”

His wife, Siti Kadariah, was surprised to see such a strange fish.

“When my husband brought the fish home, both my children were stunned because of its shape and uniqueness.”

The kids started calling the strange creature an "Armour Fish," which is a pretty good guess since it’s actually a Satyrichthys welchi, aka a robust armoured-gurnard.  

At a fish market in Ormoc City in the Philippines the fish is simply called a Pineapple Fish.
