15 Essential Blobfish Facts - All You Need to Know
The blobfish is known as the world's ugliest fish. It lacks in real muscle and skeleton. Because It is made up of gelatinous flesh, the fish is able to float instead of swim. Scientists say that the change in atmospheric pressure causes the fish to degrade into a blob, a jelly-like substance. It can not keep its structure when out of water. Since blobfish have no teeth, researchers say that the fish just engulfs and sucks the items around it. Other than simple hypotheses, blobfish's activities are hard to identify due to the inability to reach the deep, high pressure waters.
