Sakahayangna.com – Ahoy baraya, ketika sedang iseng mencari keyword Monster Fish, ternyata muncul satu penampakan yang membuat penasaran… Ada satu ikan yang belum pernah Saka lihat sebelumnya baraya…
Ternyata namanya long-nosed chimaera, ini ikan yang hidup di perairan sangat dalam,
An extremely weird looking fish was snagged recently in the frigid artic waters off northern Canada and after some confused speculation about what it even is, researchers have identified it as the super rare long-nosed chimaera.
The spooky, deep sea fish has a long nose, menacing mouth, and a venomous spine atop its gelatinous grey body and was caught near the northernmost province of Nunavut in Davis Straight.
Researchers, who at first believed the odd fish was the similarly freakish goblin shark, say the long-nosed chimaera likely makes its home at depths not often visited by humans.
The chimaera is one of the world’s oldest species of fish.
The chimaera goes by various names including ratfish, rabbitfish, and ghostsharks.
But they aren’t sharks. The group branched off from sharks, its closest relative, around 400 million years ago and have remained a distinct, and distinctly odd, lineage ever since and have been basically unchanged since they shared the Earth with dinosaurs.
Like sharks and rays, chimaeras have a skeleton made of cartilage.
Most species of chimaera have a mildly venomous spine on their back. The long-nosed chimaera is no exception.
Some species of chimaera are even eaten as food in some parts of the world.
But the enigmatic fish is largely restricted to deep ocean waters, putting it out of reach to most fishermen and scientists.
For these reasons, the strange creatures are poorly studied and understood
