Found off the coast of Australia, New Zealand, and Tasmania, the blobfish is considered the epitome of an ‘ugly animal’ because it has a face that flows like melted jelly, a flat nose, and small eyes.
However, the blobfish that lives at a depth of 9200 feet (2804.16 meters) are said to be much more handsome (?) than they do from land.
This is because the pressure of the water lifts the blobfish’s flabby face.
So, how on earth is the inside of a blobfish able to live at a depth of less than 9000 feet and withstand the weight of water?
Recently, the overseas media ‘Business Insider’ introduced a unique internal structure along with the visual of the blobfish.
According to David Stein, a biologist who studies deep-sea life, between the blobfish’s flabby skin and the few muscles it’s all made of a gelatinous fluid.
Therefore, it is said that if you catch the blobfish by its tail, the liquid will be directed toward the head.
Blobfish do not have swim bladders, which are air sacs, and they float around in the deep sea.
