Sarcastic Fringehead

This is a fish. A real actual fish called the sarcastic fringehead. I just think this is a fantastic name for a fish, totally random and bizarre.

I don’t have any special knowledge of this fish that is worthy of a blog post, I just like the name. I googled it to see if there were any cool factoids or images I could add to enhance this post from the basic, hey did you know there’s a fish with a really cool random name to something at least vaguely informative.

There is speculation that the name comes from the Greek, where it meant flesh tearing rather a cutting remark, which makes sense as it’s a vicious little beastie.

I’d like to be able to add a photo, but I don’t have any and am too tired to trawl through Google images to find one with no copyright. They are shockingly ugly with huge bug eyes though, so a quick look might be fun!

Short and weird today!

What’s your favourite weirdly named thing?
