Alien of the Deep: ‘Winged’ Green-Eyed Creature Stuns Fishermen

Some fish look odd, but a mysterious, green-eyed fish recently pulled out of Nova Scotia’s waters is downright bizarre.

The roughly 3-foot-long (1 meter) fish had a long pointy nose, a long narrow tail and two prominent fins that bear a resemblance to the wings of a bird.

Scott Tanner was about 30 days into a 42-day fishing trip when he spotted the freaky fish. “Everybody was just like, ‘Wow, that’s weird, never seen one of those before,'” said Tanner, who is a fisherman from Nova Scotia. “It was super-long, longest one I’ve ever done.” [See Photos of the Bizarre Fish and Other Freaky-Looking Fish]
