Giant Oarfish caught in Mexico

The picture above is not photoshopped nor is the strange looking creature some sort of sea serpent.  What we have here is a rare Oarfish, found in tropical waters but rarely seen or caught.  Oarfish frequent depths down to 3,300 feet and can grow up to 56 feet in length (they are considered one of the world’s longest fish) and weigh up to 600 pounds.  Many believe that the oarfish could have been the basis for ancient myths of sea-serpents.
