A bizarre four-eyed fish has baffled scientists after being caught by a fisherman in the Northern Territory.
The bizarre specimen, which has a set of eyes on the front of its head as well as the side, bears a striking resemblance to ‘Blinky’ the radioactive fish from the Simpsons.
Simon Merefield took to social media to unravel the mystery of the creature, caught in Darwin’s Buffalo Creek, before scientists debated exactly what it was.
‘I must admit they look like nostrils in this photo but we’re certain they were eyes…It winked at us,’ Mr Merefield wrote on Facebook.
Some commenters speculated whether the fish had developed false eyes to help catching prey, while others suggested the fish was deformed.
