OK, that's one funny looking weird fish

It's called an elephant fish, and it uses it's "trunk" to snorfle around on the bottom of the Congo River where the water is murky and fish can't see very far.

Check out the picture and ask yourself if you think elephant fish does the job as a name for this odd creature.

The fish was found on an expedition to the Congo River where fish separated by barriers such as waterfalls have gotten really strange. According to Miriam at Oyster's Garter: the leader of the expedition, fish biologist Melanie Stiassny, called their findings “evolution on steroids.”
