Freaky Fish #9: Squarenose Helmetfish

Squarenose Helmetfish – (scopelogadus beanii)This fish is named for the armor worn by medieval knights, and it’s blessed with unusually large nostrils. It also has a network of white strands on its face that are sensory canals. Just don’t make any sudden movements when you’re in the depths, and you ought to be just fine.See the rest and vote for the freakiest for your chance to win IMAX tickets at http://oceana.org/freaky-fish-contest.
