The discovery of this strange creature that seemed to belong to another planet sᴛᴀʀᴛʟᴇd the fishermen.
Chimaeras Monstrosa Linnaeus is the Latin name for the rat fish, and part of the Greek mythological creature with the tail of a dragon and the head of a lion.
Off the north coast of Nᴏʀᴡᴀʏ, Oscar, a 19-year-old Nordic Sea Angling fishing guide, unintentionally hooked the tiny species.
He had four hooks on a single line, and near the end, he found a giant soᴍᴇᴛʜing.
The fish have been there for 300 million years and are safe for humans to be around.
