(VIDEO) Adult male Algerian gorilla fish feed on baby whales and have reached their maximum size. P

 

A recent social media sensation involving an exotic animal specialist from Miami, Florida, has been debunked as a hoax.

Mike Holston, also known as “The Real Tarzan,” made audacious claims of capturing an “Algerian gorilla fish” with an ape-like visage that supposedly “preys on whales.” However, experts have unequivocally refuted the existence of such a creature.

The image shared by Holston on social media depicted a man holding up a peculiar-looking fish.

Holston asserted that this was an adult male Algerian gorilla fish, typically growing to about 3-4 feet in length. He further claimed that the fish had been feeding on baby whales and had reached its maximum size.

Holston proceeded to share more alleged facts about the creature, such as its ability to lay 34 eggs on land and turn bright red during mating season.

He even asserted that the fish could live up to 13 years old but could extend its lifespan to 48 years if circumcised.

Despite the outlandish nature of Holston’s claims, many individuals eagerly contributed their own supposed facts about the Algerian gorilla fish. The hoax spiraled out of control and gained widespread traction on social media.

Nevertheless, experts have since confirmed that there is no such entity as an Algerian gorilla fish. The creature is a complete fabrication, likely conceived as a publicity stunt or a jest.

It’s not uncommon for social media users to fall for hoaxes and myths, particularly when they involve unusual or exotic beings.

However, it is imperative to fact-check assertions before disseminating them to others. In this instance, even a modicum of research would have swiftly revealed that the Algerian gorilla fish was nothing more than a social media fallacy.
