Fish in South Korea with Human Faces

These two fish were found in a private pool in the central part of South Korea. Their faces look so much like human faces that the Korean news ran this short feature on them.

It is speculated that these fish are probably the hybrid offspring of two species of carp.

Both female carp are about 90 cm (35.5") long. They live in a small pool behind the home of a 64-year-old Korean resident.

According to the owner of the fish, they only recently have taken on the "humanoid" features.

However, researchers are going to investigate this transformation and try to discover if there are any other species with this same propensity.
