Images of a strange ‘bird fish’ have gone viral, prompting questions about what the bizarre creature is.

Citing the Guizhou Urban Daily newspaper, Metro reports that the fish was reeled in by anglers in Guizhou, South-West China.

The fish, which appears to more than a foot long, can be seen gasping for air in video footage. It was released back into the water, according to Metro.

Although dubbed “bird fish,” the creature is actually a deformed carp, Metro reports.

A Guizhou Fisheries Research Institute expert told Guizhou Urban Daily that the fish’s deformity is not an uncommon occurrence. The deformity may be the result of embryonic damage when the fish was growing or from a lack of oxygen in the water caused by overcrowded fish farming.

99 Million Year Old 'Gliding' Beetle Found In Amber .
Without amber, it’s unlikely that scientists would have ever discovered this long-extinct creature. Tiny insects are fragile and have no bones, and they rarely fossilized in the same way that larger animals like dinosaurs did. The chance that remains of any animal could leave an impression that would last millions of years is slim, and notice the fossil of something the size of a period at the end of a sentence would be nearly impossible. However, that’s where amber, fossilized tree resin that sometimes captures plants and animals, comes in, preserving ancient flora and fauna with incredible detail.
