Earlier this week, a fisherman captured a strange pink-skinned creature off the coast of Cabo, Mexico.
The “Sea Monster” has a peculiar shape as if it came from aliens with a fisherman’s hook.
A photo of an alien-like creature with pink and white skin, large black eyes resembling those of extraterrestrials, and a swollen belly surfaced. Many people on social media have made various predictions about this strange creature.
The “alien” fish was posted on social media on March 29 and was caught by Jaime Rendón, the captain of the fishing boat Pescado. After being captured for a short time, the sea monster was released back into nature.
With strange eyes and three gill slits on each side.
Jaime said he thought it was a sea monster due to its rough skin, three rows of sharp teeth, and three gill slits on the sides. However, scientists confirmed it was an albino shark.
This albino shark is unusual because it has only three gill slits, while normal fish have 5 to 7 gill slits on each side. The fish’s eyes are dark and oddly shaped. “I was surprised when I caught the fish, especially its eyes,” Jaime said.
This fish can breathe water or air to inflate rapidly.
The captain of the fishing boat Pescado thought the creature was in danger, so he decided to return it to the sea. The distinctive swollen abdomen of albino sharks is the most recognizable feature of the swollen shark. This species can absorb water or air for a moment, causing the body to “inflate” rapidly and making it impossible for enemies to swallow it.
Swollen sharks often have golden brown eyes and irregular dark spots on their bodies. Young fish are lighter in color. The pink and white color on the body of the strange fish is said to be caused by albinism.
