Ugly catch: Mystery ‘armour fish’ caught in South China Sea stuns experts

Here’s one ugly fish you wouldn’t want to end up on your dinner plate.

The mysterious sea creature was caught by stunned fisherman in the South China Sea, with its identity leaving experts stumped.

Nicknamed the ‘armour fish’, the unidentified catch is covered with sharp spines on the top and bottom of its body.

‘This is the first time in my life that I have seen this type of fish. I brought it home to my wife and informed her of the rare catch,’ Sapar Mansor, 43, told The Borneo Post.

The stunned angler was with a friend on a fishing boat near Tudan in Malaysia when he pulled in the 1ft-long fish, which has two tusk-like spikes near its mouth.
