Strange find of a pig-faced shark | Digital Trends Spanish

Nature still has many surprises to offer us, especially at the bottom of the oceans, where there is very little we have explored.

A few days ago, a group of Italian sailors took out of the waters of the island of Elba, a rare specimen of Oxynotus centrina, a kind of shark famous for its unique appearance, as it would have a “pig’s face.”

In fact, this animal is popularly known as “pig fish”.

“In the water, it looks like any other shark: a fast, gray hunter with steep dorsal fins that stick out from its back. But if you look closely at his face, you suddenly come across a real-life pig emoji, ”notes a post from Live Science.

According to the people who found this specimen, it is also called a pig because of the strange sound it makes when it is taken out of the water.

The picture shows a strange specimen of "pig fish" found in Italy.

“It is commonly called pigfish because when it comes out of the water it emits a kind of growl,” explained Yuri Tiberto, from the Elba Aquarium, to Toscana Media News after the recent find.

This particular specimen was found floating dead in the water before being dragged to the dock.

These types of sharks abound in the Mediterranean, where their spiny dorsal fins and large bodies make them vulnerable to fishing operations, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species.

Currently, this species is considered vulnerable, as angular shark populations have decreased alarmingly in recent decades.
