Big things have small beginnings.

As with all things in nature, we are just seeing a snapshot of future events. We will one day huge creatures that will come out of the oceans or deep underground and attack all of us. We need to start preparing a way to cancel the apocalypse via Gamera. However, until that time comes we need to build our defenses around making Jagars.  Yes, I am making light of this subject but nature still has several surprises in store for us.

A freakish-looking fish hauled recently from the chilly depths of northeastern Canada has been identified as a long-nosed chimaera.

The identity of the fish, which boasts a whip-like tail and an enlarged cone-shaped nose, remained a mystery for days after it was captured by Nunavut fishermen in the Hudson Strait.

That’s understandable because these denizens, although they exist in oceans around the world, inhabit depths of up to 6,000 feet and are rarely encountered.

Nigel Hussey, a researcher with the Ocean Tracking Network, solved the mystery and told Canada’s CBC News that it’s only the second time a long-nosed chimaera has been documented in the region between Canada and Greenland.
