Never seen anything like that before. I'm interested to know what it is. I think sea creatures are fascinating. Is that a mock photo of something that WAS alive, or does it still exist?

The photo is a little grainy, but it appears to actually be a squid propelling forward. The "body" of the fish are the tentacles streamlined together.

man that is a bad photo lol it it is not a squid cause if you look in the smaller and more clearer picture it is a fish

and i think it is something alive because the title of the page was Facinating Creature found in Lake or something along those lines like i said the article was not working when i clicked on it

ill try to put a bigger and better picture up sorry about that

Interesting fish. Sadly the bad quality picture and lack of information makes it extremely difficult to identify. Considering that there are more than 21,000 (known) fish species in the ocean alone. To begin with it's most probably part of the so-called "ray-finned" fishes. If you take a look at the fishbase you'll get some idea of what the challenge is like.

To identify a fish (with a blurry picture or even no picture) you'll need to know information such as total length, fork length (the fork of the tail), snout length, fin rays, spinous (unsegmented) and soft (segmented), first (spinous) dorsal fin, second (soft) dorsal fin, pectoral fin, pelvic (ventral) fin, anal fin and so on. (I think there are about 20 "need to know" details to do a good identification.) The more information, the more likely you are to identify the fish.

Perhaps someone has seen this fish and can easily identify it. In my opinion it looks like the picture was taken of a fish in a fish tank...

Definitely one of those ancient jaw-less fish that are supposedly extinct. You can see the armored shield on it's head.

en.wikipedia.org...

It also looks more like a drawing than a photo...hard to say

Spot on! I agree it looks just like this one (centre page). It would be quite the discovery if it still existed. If only we knew exactly where the picture came from?
