"People who walked with us on the sidewalk recognized the beast from a distance, but could not determine what it was," Lithgow said, "We thought it was a crocodile, but it did not look like that from where we were. So we approached to check what it really was and honestly saw it was not "A crocodile, it's something you can only see in a zoo. It looks like a prehistoric creature with huge jaws and sharp teeth."



"It was really weird, it looked like a huge mistake with its mouths wide open, I would never have guessed it was a fish," another eyewitness noted.



Local authorities initially thought it might be a sea urchin (a type of fish), but marine animal experts who looked at the photos determined it was an alligator - a species of primitive fish from the crocodile family that usually lives in rivers and swamps in North and Central America, especially in the southern United States. Very long distance from Singapore.

In addition, the alligator fish is a carnivore that also produces poisonous eggs - so the culture of this carnivorous species in the area can have devastating consequences for the local ecosystem.

This is the alligator fish - it really looks similar

Indeed, an official statement from the authorities stated that an examination had found that it was an alligator fish, an animal considered a "living fossil" - an animal that is identical or almost identical to its fossils, that is, one that has hardly changed for millions of years.

As for how he got to Singapore, authorities experts assume he was kept as a pet and released after growing up too much.



According to local media, young alligator fish can be purchased from local fish traders only 20 cm long, but alligator fish can reach a length of 3 meters and a weight of 148 kg in adulthood (more common are 1.8 meters long and weigh 45 kg). . as you can see he has a long jaw and full of sharp teeth, which gave him the name Alligator.



officials from the nature reserve which is in the fish wanted to mention that this is crazy and so "the release of such animals disrupts the delicate ecosystem of our water and may pose a risk to the rest The animals in our bodies of water. "According to the law in Singapore, releasing animals into water reservoirs is an offense punishable by a fine of up to Singapore $ 3,000 (approximately NIS 7,500).

The Singapore Water Agency has now removed the carcass and is trying to locate the person responsible for getting there.

And yes - there are those who raise it at home
