82. Monster or Fish ?

Fisherman and sailor sometime claim to have seen monsters in the sea. Though people have often laughed at stories told by seamen, it is now known that many of these ‘monsters’ which have at times been sighted are simply strange fish. Occasionally, unusual creatures are washed to the shore, but they are rarely caught out at sea. Some time ago, however, a peculiar fish was caught near Madagascar. A small fishing boat was carried miles out to sea by the powerful fish as it pulled on the line. Realizing that this was no ordinary fish, the fisherman made every effort not to damage it in any way. When it was eventually brought to shore, it was found to be over thirteen feel long. It had a head like a horse, big blue eyes, shining silver skin, and a bright red tail. The fish, which has since been sent to a museum where it is being examined by a scientist, is called an oarfish. Such creatures have rarely been seen alive by man as they live at a depth of six hundred feet.
Rakasa atau Fish? Nelayan dan pelaut kadang-kadang mengaku telah melihat monster di laut. Meskipun orang sering menertawakan cerita diberitahu oleh pelaut, sekarang diketahui bahwa banyak dari ‘monster’ yang telah di kali telah terlihat adalah ikan hanya aneh. Kadang-kadang, makhluk yang tidak biasa dicuci ke pantai, tetapi mereka jarang tertangkap di laut. Beberapa waktu lalu, namun, ikan aneh tertangkap di dekat Madagaskar. Sebuah perahu nelayan kecil dilakukan mil ke laut oleh ikan kuat karena ditarik di telepon. Menyadari bahwa ini tidak ada ikan biasa, nelayan membuat setiap usaha untuk tidak merusaknya dengan cara apapun. Ketika akhirnya dibawa ke pantai, ditemukan untuk menjadi lebih dari tiga belas merasa panjang. Ini memiliki kepala seperti kuda, mata biru besar, kulit perak berkilau, dan ekor berwarna merah cerah. Ikan, yang sejak itu telah dikirim ke museum di mana ia sedang diperiksa oleh seorang ilmuwan, disebut oarfish. makhluk tersebut jarang terlihat hidup oleh manusia karena mereka tinggal di kedalaman enam ratus kaki.
