A Chinese internet user posted a video on social media in which you can see a fish... with a human face. Both amazing and scary.
This story takes place in a lake near Kunming, a city in southern China. It is in this body of water that a fish was found resembling... a human being. Yes, you read that right! This fish was filmed and the video was posted on social networks.
This is where the buzz started, with the post being shared tens of thousands of times. As you can see in the video above, this fish has attributes that look like eyes, nose and mouth, as surprising as it may seem.
This video looks like it came out of a Sci-Fi movie, but it's trending in Twitter these last couple of days when french @matmonde posted it!
What kind of fish is it exactly? Is it fake? We don't know anything more about this mysterious marine animal. But it is not to be ruled out that this is a typical case of anthropomorphism, in other words, our unfortunate tendency to see and attribute even vague human characteristics to everything that moves (animals in particular) or does not move (nature, trees, clouds...).
However, it should be noted that this is not an isolated case. In 2016, another fish with a human face, probably a carp, was caught in central China. It has thus become a real tourist attraction.
