The bizarre ‘alien creature’ found with human-like feet (Photo)

AN alien-like fish has given fishermen a fright in the Caribbean.

The peculiar creature caused a stir after it was hauled out of the ocean because it had scales, feet, toes and even a human-like nose.

The aquatic horror was hauled ashore in Windward on the Island of Carriacou – and the man who caught it believes it ‘walks on the seabed’.

An islander said: ‘Everyone crowded round to look – nobody had ever seen anything like it.

‘Quite a few people were pretty scared and thought it looked like something out of a sci-fi horror film.’

Fisherman Hope McLawrence, 74, said, ‘By the look of the creature it cannot swim but apparently walks on the sea bed.

‘This has shocked me to a considerable extent since I never thought that a creature like this even existed, much less in the harbour of these shallow, friendly waters.

‘It’s a mysterious discovery and a chilling one at that.’
