A video of a strange carp fish is being increasingly shared on social media. Seeing the video, Twitter users said that the fish has two mouths and two eyes. At the same time, many people are calling it a fish derived from the Chernobyl nuclear plant tragedy in the era of the Soviet Union. Because the lake beds near Chernobyl were dead. Seeing the video, scientists are not able to say clearly whether this fish has happened due to any contamination or not. He says that a test will have to be done to find out.
Carp fish look perfectly healthy and developed, despite having two faces. In such a situation, experts believe that the reason behind this happening is not contamination, because if it were there, the fish would have already died. Dr Timothy Musso, a biologist at the University of South Carolina in the US, says, ‘Most radiation-induced mutations inhibit growth. It also reduces the ability to survive and reproduce.
what do scientists say
Pro. Musso says that such mutations do not survive long. Most are slow and less capable and in this case they are also more likely to be killed by an animal or human. Prof Musso has also studied Chernobyl. He said that the exact information about what went wrong with the fish can be known only through experimentation. In that too, not just one fish, but hundreds and thousands of fish will be used separately. It is not possible to say anything without any experiments.
What did the user say on social media
On watching the video, it seems as if the fish has two mouths and four eyes. However, some scientists and social media users say that mouth and mouth is actually a wound that has healed incorrectly. At the same time, regarding the eyes, he says that these are the noses of the fish. In Asian carp fish, the nose is made above their mouth. However, despite this, people kept speculating on social media.
