It had a prolonged tail, seemed to have no eyes, and had countless pointy teeth.
Hurricane Harvey’s issue showed a extinction it has brought on Texas. The Hurricane has left hundreds of people with many zero after destroying their houses, and even holding lives in a process. However, something weird has held a courtesy a locals.
While many deep-sea animals find reserve in a low sea during a storm, some marine mammals, such as manatees and dolphins, might be cleared ashore or into unknown habitats. However, this quadruped confused many after it cleared ashore after Hurricane Harvey’s attack.
One lady posted several photos of a bizarre-looking “fish” and tweeted: “Okay, biology twitter, what a heck is this?”
The passed animal looks eyeless, has a tail and sports a mouth full of pointy teeth.
Preeti Desai, who pronounced she had accompanied conservationists assessing a repairs from a storm, told DailyMail.com: “This is a kind of thing that’s ideal for Twitter—there are so many scientists and researchers on a height and they’re really peaceful to burst in and figure out things like this.”
And indeed, she got what she asked for.
Biomechanist Adam P. Summers’ respond to her twitter drew one of a most-liked comments on Twitter. Quoting a associate Twitter user and ichthyologist (a chairman who studies fish science) Ben Frable, he said: “It is an Ophichthid eel called a tusky eel (Aplatophis chauliodus).”
Kenneth Tighe, an eel expert, told Earth Touch News that a quadruped was many expected a fangtooth snake-eel, or Aplatophis chauliodus.
Fangtooth snake-eels live in burrows 100 to 300 feet down in waters stretching from a Gulf of Mexico to French Guiana, “with usually muzzle and eyes exposed, darting to feed on other fishes and crustaceans,” according to FishBase, an online database for fish species.
Though a animal has been identified by experts, people on amicable media were still meddlesome in—and spooked by—the sea creature.
