Originally reported by the Mirror UK, Angler stunned after hooking rare unidentified fish in the South China Sea near Malaysia. The fisherman, Sapar Mansor said “This is the first time in my life that I have seen this type of fish. I brought it home to my wife and informer her of the rare catch”.

The fish looks like a cross between sea robin, horseshoe crab and sturgeon. What do you think; is this a new marine discovery or a talented taxidermist at work?

I say real. We're going to see a lot of mutated sea life from over there soon.

I'm personally saying fake, because the photos of the fish look as if the fish has been dried out. Why not take the photo as soon as you got the fish home?

I think it's fake too.

I also think it's fake. If it were real, we would be hearing about it elsewhere I would think. Probably just an alien from another planet, no biggie.

This got posted on Reddit weeks ago. it's an Armored Gurnard. Just google it and look at the image, no question, it's real.
