The bizarre ‘unicorn fish’ that looks almost human

One of the most unique looking fish on the planet, the ‘unicorn fish’ has a very human feature – an unusually large nose. In fact, its entire head looks uncannily like a disgruntled human face. However, the fish also has another amazing ability – it can change colour.

 The spotted unicorn fish has a long horn that protrudes from the top of its head, just like the re-fuelling tube on the front of the RAF spy planes. It recently arrived at the Sealife Centre in Weymouth, Dorset.

'Nimrod', a unicorn fish which has recently arrived at an aquatic centre in Weymouth, is being used by staff as an early warning system. The strange fish change colour if the water quality of the tanks is not up to scratch.
