That is interesting indeed. I wonder if there is any way of having someone more educated in identifying rare species take a look at this. It kind of stinks that they decided to take it upon themselves and kill and dry the fish to keep as an ornament. SMH

Looks very similar to a searobin.


Haaha that;s because it is a sea robin - an armored sea robin.

Not too much of a mystery when fishbase has them listed....
