Ten of the most bizarre fish in the world

Their unusual appearance sometimes brings a smile and surprise, and sometimes just shocked and terrified, so nervous and impressionable better the pictures look.

1. The Ambon Scorpion is difficult to confuse with other species of fish. It can be easily recognized by the unusual growths above the eyebrows. In addition, fish is able to perfectly camouflage themselves, changing color under the environment. Was opened in 1856 and is a well studied fish species. (Roger Steene/Conservation International)

2. Another exotic species of the deep sea — a psychedelic fish-frog. An unusual variegated colour, no scales, fancy curved body and unusual for the fish method of movement is jumping. Looking at this “miracle of nature” and do not understand who you’re before. (David Hall/EOL Rapid Response Team)

3. The master of underwater camouflage – the rag-picker, living in the depths of the Indian ocean. Whole body of small fish covered with spikes, simulating algae. (lecates/Flickr)

6. Another little-studied fish the frilled shark. It is rare to find in the waters of the Pacific and Atlantic ocean. Externally, the shark looks more like an eel or a sea snake, but does it nor its nearest relatives. There are about a hundred species of sharks-pleasenote. (Awashima Marine Park/Getty Images)

7. Latimeria Indonesian long been considered extinct. Surprisingly, evolution is absolutely not touch these fish. Today they look like their ancestors millions of years ago. (Pearson – Benjamin Cummings)

8. Hairy monkfish few can look without a shudder. This strange and disgusting fish lives at depths greater than one kilometre in conditions of pitch darkness. Fish is a dangerous predator with extremely sharp and strong teeth. To attract prey uses a glowing growth on the forehead. In the diet of monkfish are often included other representatives of predatory fish at times large in terms of dimensions. (BBC)

9. The picture shows the fish-drop. Few believe in the real existence of this “sad” jelly fish. But the fact remains. (Kerryn Parkinson/Australian Museum)

10. The title of the most bizarre fish in the world for many years owned by the Smallmouth macropinna. This deep-sea fish with a completely transparent head. Eye macropinna rich green color and hidden under the casing of the head. What in the picture I fish very often mistaken for the eye, in fact nothing but the organs of smell. (Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute)
