Bizarre Fish Washes Up On Brazilian Beach – Are Those Fins, Legs or Wings?

Talk about deformed fish! If there was ever a case for evolution this fish would make it. The “animal” appears to have fins that look like legs and almost even wings.

The closest scientific name for an animal that looks like this would be a Longnose Batfish (Ogcocephalus corniger).

The Longnose is a very poor swimmer, but has developed very strong pectoral and pelvic fins that it uses as hands and feet to creep along the sea floor. The Longnose Batfish has been seen jumping, crawling and even walking on “all fours”. When threatened, the Longnose Batfish immediately buries itself in the sandy bottom.
