Fish with human-like face spotted in China

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A visitor to a village in southern China has been left stunned after spotting a fish that appears to have a human face. 

Trending footage shows the carp sporting markings that resemble a man's mouth, nose and eyes on its head.

A woman who was filming the video was so awestruck by the sight she gushed: 'The fish has turned into a fairy.'

Carp have long been known to carry markings which can look like a human face, but actually seeing one is rare

It's worrisome when something that rare shows up, as it often becomes something to be captured, killed and displayed.

Looks like mostly it is the black spot coloring causing the appearance. Super cool looking fish though.

The wonderfully human trait of pareidolia, the tendency for incorrect perception of a stimulus as an object, pattern or meaning known to the observer, such as seeing faces in objects or abstract patterns or hidden messages in music.

Is there a name for hearing voices in white noise?
I ask because I do that.
I seldom hear a word that I can understand, but it sounds like voices to me.

Thank you XenoFish.  One advantage of this is that listening to my fan puts me to sleep quickly.
