Fisherman finds a metre-long alien-like ‘zombie killer catfish’

Fisherman finds a metre-long alien-like ‘baby Loch Ness monster’ swimming over his foot… so do you know what it is?

  • A strange looking sea creature left beach-goers puzzled in South Australia 
  • Witnesses said it ‘cruised along’ a sand bar before swimming back out to sea 
  • Social media users were stumped – someone suggested it was a ‘baby loch ness’

A strange looking sea creature has left beach-goers puzzled after it swam around their feet in an inquisitive fashion before darting back out to sea.

The fish, described as a ‘cross between a ling, catfish and flathead’ approached a group standing on a sand bar at Yorke Peninsula, near the Spencer Gulf, South Australia.

A photo of the odd animal, with a transparent appearance, was shared online Thursday by a friend of the group who saw it for themselves.

‘A bit under one metre long, cruising along knee-deep sand bars on Yorke Peninsula Spencer Gulf side,’ one of the witnesses told Dave Krantz.

‘Looked a bit like a cross between a ling, catfish and flathead, curious about us, lingered, swam over my foot.’

Suggestions of the potential species of the fish flooded in, with one immediately writing it off as some kind of fictional predator. 

‘Zombie killer catfish! Seriously, I’d have to think some sort of estuarine catfish, but just under a metre is very big for one,’ someone wrote.   

‘Baby Loch Ness,’ another suggested.
