No matter how advanced the development in technology is, there are still things or events that seem to be very unusual that eve scientists find it hard to explain their existence.
This is exactly the case with this bizarre-looking fish that has made waves on the internet in China because of its unusual ‘bird’ head.
In a report by Daily Mail , some netizens said the fish’s head looks like a pigeon’s or a parrot’s head; while others argued it bears more resemblance to that of a dolphin. A local fishery expert said the strange creature is a deformed carp.
The creature, which was later called ‘bird fish’ by web users, was reeled in by a number of anglers in Guizhou, south-west China.


A video footage that circulated online shows the odd fish gasping on the ground while its body looks like a normal fish’s body, its head has a distinctive, mismatched shape.
The said video has been shared repeatedly through various Chinese social media platform as well as on Facebook. Netizens also had different opinions with regards to the matter.
Fish expert at Natural History Museum said that they cannot identify the exact species of the fish but concluded that it is under the group, Cyprinidae, as a carp family. The fish in the video could be showing a deformity known as ‘pug-head’, which is often seen in fishes, stated the expert.
International Union for Conservation of Nature explained that water pollution, genetic mutations and injury early in life could be the possible causes to the abnormal appearance of the fish.
Yang Xing, an expert from the Guizhou Fisheries Research Institute, told Guizhou Urban Daily that the bird-headed fish is actually a carp and it’s deformed.
“One possibly is that the embryo was damaged when it was growing; another possibility is that the lack of oxygen in water – due to over-crowded fishing farming – caused the fish’s head to be deformed,” Yang Xing said.
