Have you ever imagined how many species are there lying unnoticed in this huge world?
It will not be surprising to say that there are millions of species about whose existence humans have no idea about.
There are currently more than 15 million species on earth, and we have only found two million of them.
One such unnoticed species was found in 2003, blob fish or Psychrolutes marcidus, a strange fish with no muscles at all!
It has since been categorized as the ugliest animal living in deep sea near the Australian borders.
As they do not have a lot of bones in the body, the extreme pressure of the deep sea provides structural support to the body which is made up of a blobby material, with a density lower than water.
The blobfish was found in the deep sea waters of New Zealand and has since been found in Australian waters as well.
This marine animal captured a lot of attention because of its strange and hideous appearance.
This fish is still a wonder to many and scientists are trying to find out more about this species
As this fish is full of interesting and unique features, learning about it becomes more intriguing.
The blobfish which is well known for its weird appearance is not like the other fishes.
These ugly t fishes may look like fish, but they have many differences from other ordinary fishes.
A blobfish is an ugly fish which looks like a normal bony fish in deep waters but when this fish is dragged out of the water surface then these fishes look wobbly and gelatinous.
Their body is made up of a blobby substance that protects it from the extreme pressure in the depths of a sea or an ocean.
It possesses huge black eyes, a large mouth and a bulbous nose.
A blobfish is neither a very big nor a very small fish.
A blobfish is around 12 in long but can reach length of 2 ft as well, which makes it 12 times bigger than a Paedocypris fish.
This boneless blobfish weighs around 20 lb.
A blobfish eats carrion, sea pens, crabs, mollusks, and sea urchins.
