The appearance of the catch was surprising not only Sergei and his friends, but more experienced fishermen who were nearby.
«Fished between Saturday and Sunday. Caught at the feeder. Solid foods do. And the fish I caught by hand — told VN.ru Sergey Dolgopolov. — At first glance, similar to burbot, but in the end some kind of Chupacabra. And this creature was the whole mouth leeches. I assume that it is likely to bottom fish. She had armored scales. And she was making some sounds similar to a growl. Home I did not pick up. After the photo shoot sent back.
Sergey lives in the Kirov district of Novosibirsk and fishes from 8 years. In winter and summer. But the first time he had to «see a miracle». «Someone on the river is not shown — no one knows, but everyone was taking pictures,» added Sergei.

«It’s very unusual places for our fish. Nothing like that in my 20 years of practice, I have not seen — said ichthyologist. — I can only assume that this aquarium fish. I sent the photos to a friend scientist exotic species. The answer must come tomorrow.
In Novosibirsk is very strongly developed aquariums and our residents often release in the Ob different exotic. There were even piranhas. But in Novosibirsk reservoirs she does not live exactly. The second version: fish with photos came to us by Ine from a warm reservoir of Belovskaya. Unfortunately, these animals are doomed to death.»
