This fish looks more like something you’d find in a fantasy show or in your darkest dreams.

This particular specimen was caught by Drew Herma; it was his first lancetfish.

This dragon looking fish is actually all too real. It’s called a lancetfish, and besides growing up to 6.6 feet, not much is known about their biology – so they could technically be capable of breathing fire.
