Whatever the fuck this is, you don't want to be swimming along with it. Scientists have identified a mysterious animal captured in the arctic waters of Canada's Hudson Strait region.
At first, they thought it was a goblin shark. (Yes those things exists.) But it wasn't. They claim it's a Rhinochimaeridae, or otherwise known as a long nosed chimaera. Or in other words "something you don't want getting cozy with you". Talking to CBC
, University of Windsor researcher Nigel Hussey said that "only one of these fish has previously been documented from the Hudson Strait. Potentially, if we fish deeper, maybe between 1,000 and 2,000 metres, we could find that's there's actually quite a lot of them there. We just don't know."
Should we even find out?
