I was just reading Casandra's insect thread and tried to find more info on the bug she displayed.
My attention changed when I saw this picture:



I am pretty good at seeing through most CGI's and edited photo's but this thing looks real!

WTF

It's real... It lives in the deep deep mid ocean but I can't remember its name. Check out "The Deep" an episode of "Blue Planet".....

I found another photo but this one looks 'fishy' to me.


It's a HOAX: Mods please update!


Identified in some versions of the email as a “Devil Fish,” the gruesome specimen in the preceding photographs doesn’t really exist. It’s a fine example of what is called “gaff art” — the manufacture of sideshow artifacts or fake oddities out of the preserved body parts of real animals using taxidermy and prop-building techniques. It was first sighted in an eBay auction dated May 2006, where it was described as a “mummified sea monster corpse.” The winning bidder paid $637.

It was created by Florida artist Juan Cabana, who was also responsible for the creepy “merman or mermaid carcass” allegedly found washed up on beaches from South Africa to south Florida.

Prank

OH.MY.GOD


I'm never getting close to the ocean ever again.

Have you checked out this Link? It has more horrible sea creatures, though not the one you posted.

Those are clearly not fish teeth. It looks like some sort of mammal skull put on a fish tail.

en.wikipedia.org...

According to BBC's Blue Planet- The Deep -, the Fangtooth has the largest teeth of any fish in the ocean, proportionate to body size.


Look at some Google images for 'fangtooth' or 'anglerfish' and you will see that the teeth are very thin and uniform... These pics show fangs and molars and whatever the other types of teeth are called

That is photoshopped. Looks to be the eyes, snout, and teeth of a baboon. It has nasal openings for Christ's sake. How many fish do you know that breathe through a nose?

Actually, upon further review... (see, like an instant replay thing
)

I think this one is a hoax.

The real deal things are monstrous enough, so I'm not sure what the point was. But there you go.

Doesn't look shopped.
But it does look like a fake of some sort.

Ok, so the artist who created this sells it as real but it's not, and he doesn't consider them hoaxes either

But... it's a HOAX.

I think it's an angler fish too....it gets it's name from the fact that is has a protusion on it's head with a little "lure" on it....it will bury itself under the sand, so that only the "fishing pole" is seen. He wiggles it around to tempt a hungry fish....the fish goes after the "bait"...then BAM!!!

Quoting this post to reiterate to all the members here who will not read a thread before commenting.


This is a HOAX that is nearly as old as the internet. It is not a photoshop it is a taxidermy job like that of the Fiji Mermaid PT Barnum used to peddle.

I'd rather be in a swimming pool with the Hoaxed fish - alive! Then that Tiger Fish.

My god what are these things eating these days?

Even if that it is not a real fish there are real fish that are very large with teeth similar to that. Just watch the show river monster here's an example.

Yup, after more than a casual glance it seems this fishes has been fitted with a set of prosthetic teeth.....

Those are mammal teeth.

But technically, it's not the Fish's fault....
