Twitter users are in a frenzy over a group of eerie fish that seem to have no eyes but instead resemble something you’d find in a farmer’s market. The mysterious creatures have been compared to none other than the juicy and sweet blackberries.
A video showcasing these fishy wonders was recently shared on social media, and it has taken the internet by storm. People are left scratching their heads, wondering what these creatures are and how they came to look like the beloved fruit.
Prepare to be mystified as @BaconLava’s latest post showcases a strange sight that will leave you scratching your head. The video features someone holding peculiar black fish that seem to wriggle between their fingers.
These fish have an unusual feature that makes them look like a delicious fruit plucked straight from the farmer’s market – blackberries! Their rounded heads have a distinct bubble-like appearance and in the footage, their mouths open and close as if they are chewing on something tasty.
Titled “Black Oranda Goldfish,” the video has taken the internet by storm, with almost 9,000 retweets and over 26,000 likes. But with so many users still in disbelief over the fish’s uncanny resemblance to blackberries, one Twitter user couldn’t help but question if they were holding a living fruit in their hands!
Glinda’s statement left Twitter users in a state of shock and disbelief. According to her, these peculiar creatures are not fish, but rather blackberries from the radioactive wasteland of Chernobyl.
AshTheBluntBoo also chimed in, commenting on their resemblance to swimming blackberries with mouths.
JonRud00’s appetite for blackberries was ruined after seeing the video, stating that he couldn’t “consciously make that decision again” after witnessing the strange creatures.
Despite their bizarre appearance, some found the fish to be cute, with one user humorously suggesting that they resembled a swimming allergic reaction.
Mara Vercetti was intrigued yet disgusted by the video, summing it up as “fascinating and disgusting at the same time.” Even The Simpsons got in on the action, with @CubaEscobar sharing a picture of a three-eyed fish from the show and jokingly suggesting that they had predicted this bizarre occurrence.
The Black Oranda Goldfish, scientifically known as Carassius auratus auratus, is a type of ornamental goldfish that features a unique and prominent bubble-like hood on their heads. This hood can either be a large growth on the top of the head or completely encase the face except for the eyes and mouth.
Originating from Asia, Japan, and China, the Black Oranda is just one of many varieties of ornamental or fancy goldfish that have been selectively bred for aesthetic appeal. In addition to its distinctive appearance, the Black Oranda is available in a variety of colours, including orange, red, black, blue, bronze, white, and black and white.
