now would that count toward your daily limit
its like a anemone, it can slpit
That is awesome. I guess it happens to people, so it must be able to happen to animals.
I would mount that beast(s)
Anybody else notice how thats happening more and more?
That would make a hell of a mount.Dont know that I'd fry it.
Reminds me of the fish on The Simpsons that has 3 eyes - and lives downriver from the nuke plant...
Sad to say, I doub't that would have happened 50 yrs ago. I am sure it's caused by pollutants.
not necessarily, it could just be a freak genetic mutation, just because they are getting caught now and the proof of them exists doesnt mean that it hasnt been happening for millions of years, it just means they werent caught and proof of them doesnt exist
I suppose there is a chance that could be true Dustin, but I'm with Yote, I still would not fry it
oh i wouldnt either, thats a one in a life time catch
Definitely not for the dinner table. I *could* be a freak of nature, but if I were a betting man I'd put my money on chemicals in the water.
Wow. That's crazy. Totally does remind me of the the 3 eyed fish on the simpsons. Its crazy that fish survived in nature that long.
One in a billion shot of it living long enough the get that size.
Most genetic mutations like that are caused by pollutants. Specifically, a type of pollutant called a mutagen.
OK, Bifffer, you will have to explain what a mutagen is. I'm a simple computer science kind of guy.
I think thats the stuff that causes frogs to have 4 heads and 6 legs.
It's any toxic or hazardous substance/chemicals that acts by mutating DNA or genes. Which is a lot of stuff. Like Yote says, they oftentimes give extra limbs, or turn animals hermaphroditic.
Thanks for the explaination Biff. :Cheers:
so even clownfish and anthias were at one time a mutaion of something else because they are all hermaphroditic
There are a lot of animals that are naturally hermaphroditic.
Pike, frogs and lizards are not .
