    That is awesome. I guess it happens to people, so it must be able to happen to animals.

    I would mount that beast(s)

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :D.
