This is my dried fish. I've had it for about 12yrs and the guy I bought it off I think had it for about 5yrs. I paid him $20 for it.
I've loved this fish since the day I saw it but I still dont know really anything about it.
I made the stand out of swamp kauri NZ hardwood.
It sits in my parents pub and gets plenty of attention, but still no identification.
Thanks for checking it out

    Never seen anything like that !! I think you got a great buy at twenty dollars. The mystery alone is worth much more than that !!!!!!!!

    I am in no way an expert in this field but I do think you should get in touch with someone who is! To me, just an observer, I feel it may be in transition to another form of creature! The look of the eye that I can see is unusual! I may be wrong on this, but just to be sure what you have here, I think you should send photos to and talk to an expert in this field ! If you will, keep me informed on your query!!! Thanks for posting this interesting creature !! I wish you a fruitfull search!!

    Thanks musikchoo
    I recon you love it as much as I do!! Thats great to know.
    This hasnt been seen by a fish expert but has been seen by so many people yet still no one knows what it is, I almost sold it once to a couple that wanted it for on thier yacht as a talking point, but I couldnt do it.
    It looks to me like some potentially big fish was turning from a baby tadpole to an adult or something, and died?
    Thanks again
