An email has been going around showing photos of bizarre, supposedly never-before-seen deep-sea creatures that have been washing up on beaches because of the tsunami. Photos of the creatures can be seen on this Russian website. It's obviously a hoax since these photos have been floating around the internet for ages. One of them has even appeared on my site before. But the Practical Fishkeeping site has done everyone a service by identifying what all these sea creatures actually are.
Glad to see the Dusty girl back, but that Fangtooth fish is downright scary, even at 15cm. Pictures like this keep me on the beach and out of the water.Posted by Daniel on Tue Jan 18, 2005 at 03:51 PM
Thanks Alex! I had actually considered trying to search out each fish, but I knew that would take hours, days, maybe even weeks. Sometimes I think I am addicted to searching, maybe I should start Searchers Anonymous.Posted by Myst on Tue Jan 18, 2005 at 04:40 PM
Practical Fishkeeping is a British aquarium hobby magazine. I haven't been reading it lately (I do read its American equivalents), but this is pretty good. Maybe I'll check out PF magazine again).Posted by Big Gary C in Dallas, Texas on Wed Jan 19, 2005 at 06:21 PM
