Animal of the day – 6/8/2011 – The Oarfish

Oarfish

The animal of the day is the Oarfish. (Did you know: This fish is also known as a sea serpent, though that picture above doesn’t do it justice as to why it gets this moniker.

Take a look at THIS picture:

Jumping Joesephat!

Oarfish are the worlds longest fish!Specimens as long as 56 feet have been recorded! That’s longer than a Whale Shark! Their meat is inedible, which is a shame because that would be the longest fish stick ever made.

In Japanese myth, spotting one near shore is said to foretell earthquakes!
