I'm not even sure if this is real or fake.. I've seen pictures of it long ago... until I bumped into a video today... now that just freaks me out!

It looks real to me.

It looks like a human face because of the pattern of this particular fish (dark line in the middle - resembling a human nose).

Yeah, the nose really makes it look like a human. Cool but kinda freaky at the same time hahha.

huh? Ur kidding me right?
Why have i not go WOW at a pet store when i see a koi? :confused:
i am no kidding , of crouse ! not every koi fish same like that, just same as the clour koi fish, and small koi fish u cant see, only while they have over 15 " , because their face and body fat, so look like its,
and one more thing, in mainland lots pet store, most koi is from China, the video u see is Japan koi, !! even in richmond store most is not real Japana koi,,,
Jap koi and China Koi is very different, the head , and clour,and the body sharp.. ( i just sharing i know, sorry .....):eek:

Over the thousands of years humans have been breeding koi, a multitude of mutations have given rise to variours morphs and strains. Sooner or later, a koi with features that give the impression (notice I said impression) of a human face will come about. This is the variablility of nature and genetics. Now, teach that koi to sing the song from the Titanic movie and I will be impressed.

My 2 cents

a FAKE in my opnion, the video is blurry, and looks like face attachment distortion fit to a fish. kinda like a facedub effect. Well perhaps I may be wrong, but in my opinion it looks fakey to me.

What a crappy evolutionary trait. How would that help them live, being purchased over a koi that doesn't look like that?

Its a koi. The eyes are just on the front now. The colour also plays with your mind as well. I've been to asia enough not to get creeped out by such things. Its just we're so immune to things over here in north america. Koi's been bred for centuries. Amazing how people knew to breed certain traits of goldfish and koi's centuries ago.

That carped caught in england is the size of a steelhead salmon almost! Haha.
