Big Fish Extravaganza


"QUANTUM SHOT" #128


Fishing can be DANGEROUS

But seriously, some people catch really big fish, and spread even bigger tales about it.

King Carp

Dieter Markus Stein from Germany caught world-record carp in 2007
(with the help of the "Visible Pop Ups" dipped into the "Carptrack Amino Monster DIP") His muscles were aching for a long time afterwards....

Ancient Shark

This frilled shark was caught recently in Japan. Nobody knows what caused this rare creature to come up from the depths of 600 meters where it lives, but it did not last long in the contaminated waters and sadly perished.

What do you do when you catch (supposedly) an alien monster?
Eat it, of course


Village residents from the Rostov region of Russia caught a weird creature two weeks ago after a strong storm in the Sea of Azov. The shark-looking creature was producing strange squeaky sounds. The fishermen originally believed that they had caught an alien and decided to film the monster with the help of a cell phone camera.

Fishing

However, scientists & UFO investigators were greatly disappointed when they found out that the fishermen had eaten the monster. They said it did not appear threatening, so they decided to fry it for dinner. One of the men said that it was the most delicious dish he had ever eaten.

Fishing

Well, the mysterious monster did not remain a mystery for very long. Kudos for discovering the truth probably go to UglyOverload:
It's a "guitar fish"

Yeti Crab - the Ultimate Psychedelic Catch

Finally, here is truly cool and unexpected creature, fished out of the depths:
the Yeti Crab:

Fishing

"Its silky white looks may make it seem more at home in the Himalaya, but this unique creature was recently discovered in the deep darkness of the South Pacific. The creature is so unusual that a whole new family of animal had to be created to classify it. Its official name is Kiwa hirsuta, and even after a year of study scientists say there's still much about it they don't understand."

Fishing

Scientists admit that we explored less than 1% of world's ocean depths, and who knows what gleefully lurks out there, mocking our feeble attempts at exploration.
(we need more public interest and expedition financing, hint, hint)

That isopod looks like a giant dust mite... but with more legs. It reminds me of an anime movie I saw where giant insects and fungi were taking over the world.
