The crocodile-costume fish washed ashore on a lake in Singapore astonished marine scientists. Scientists warned that fish with huge jaws and sharp teeth could be dangerous.
A fish, which is rare in Singapore, washed ashore in a lake. It was learned that the fish, which amazed marine scientists, attracted the attention of marine scientists and was immediately examined.
According to the news in Independent Turkish, 31-year-old Karen Lythgoe, a Scottish but currently living in Asia, found the remains of the fish on the shore of Lake MacRitchie. Lythgoe was shocked when he discovered the creature, calling it prehistoric.
Local residents had difficulty identifying the fish that looks like a crocodile fish and is native to the south of the United States, 16,000 kilometers away. The officials were stunned, wondering how the fish got here.
The fish in question produces eggs that are toxic to humans and is a predator at the top of the food chain. Leaving invasive species into wildlife without permission could have adverse effects on the local environment and on the creatures that currently live there.
Lythgoe, who made a statement about the fish in the crocodile costume, “There were already some people looking at him on the boardwalk but it was too far from here to see what happened. From the point we thought it was a crocodile but it didn’t look quite right, so we went out of the way to take a closer look. It wasn’t a crocodile! It looked like something you might see at the zoo. It was like prehistoric with its big jaws and teeth. said.
The city’s water distribution unit (PUB) and the National Parks Board released a joint statement that they described the creature as a crocodile fish.
Confused about how it got to a dam on the other side of the world, officials assume the animal was cared for as a pet and released when it grew too big.
THE BODY OF THE FISH IS REMOVED
According to local media reports, local fish merchants only sell 20-centimeter juvenile crocodile fish, which makes the statement reasonable.
Authorities reminded the public:
The release of these animals will disrupt our sensitive aquatic ecosystem and may pose a danger to the users of our water resources. Under Singapore law, dropping animals into dams and watercourses could result in fines of up to 3,000 Singapore dollars (about $ 16,000). The fish’s body has now been removed by the PUB.
