A “Tattooed” Fish Was Caught and Now We Know WTF Happened


A “tattooed” fish popped up this week when it was caught near Lopez Jaena in the Misamis Occidental province of the Philippines. While some apparently “considered the fish a warning from the depths” and others thought it might be some sort of alien fish (seriously), a more likely explanation was that a print had somehow transferred itself from a bag to the fishy scales.

Now, the mystery of the tattooed fish has been solved! According to ABS-CBN, “Zosimo Tano who caught the fish, clarified… that the print on the fish’s body came from his shirt, which he used to cover the fish.” Oooh, gotcha!

Still a pretty badass fish, IMHO.
