Unusual Fish!

I was just in Mrytle Beach, last week and went to the Rippley's Believe it or not aquarium and saw this:

They are one of the most unusual fish I have ever seen!

I think they are illegal to collect.

Add to that rare, near impossible to keep, and I believe, illegal to own in the US.

Yep. When I first saw them, I thought they were fake and had to keep looking.

The San Francisco Airport has a pretty decent display for creatures of the sea. They had one of these dragons preserved for study. They are amazing.
