The fish that Miyagi Azusa, a fisherman and video blogger from Japan boasted, seems so incredible that it's hard to believe in her existence. A strange rainbow fish would be more suitable for some science fiction film like James Cameron's Avatar . But it exists in reality.
"Such a fish simply cannot exist on Earth! It's some kind of photoshop! Obviously, the fisherman painted it with bright colors, and only then photographed it! Or the fish was simply finished in the editor," - such comments can be found on the pages of the Japanese fisherman in social networks.
Indeed, the strange blue fish with rainbow stripes looks absolutely fantastic. That is, no one would have been surprised if such a fish were shown in the second part of Avatar, but we are still on Earth, and not on Pandora.
But this is a real fish. Meet - in front of us is Thalassoma purpureum - a fish that is quite common in the coastal zones of the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. Despite its colorful appearance associated with poisonous fish, T. purpureum is an edible species that is valued among fishermen. The picture with an amazing fish has already grown a huge amount of comments and likes, which is not surprising, since the catch of the Japanese blogger is really amazing.
