Shrek the Fish?

We always thought that Shrek, the green ogre, lived peacefully in a swamp. No way. He is adventurous.

Now he has gone swimming off the coast of Japan. This particular fish, almost 30 years old, bears a remarkable resemblance to Shrek. The head, the chin, the beady eyes — it's all there. Were they separated at birth?




But no sign of Donkey or Fiona.

Did I misspell? Is it Fiorina?

  3. Yikes, that fish is a bit scary! Maybe it has a tumour or something causing it to look like that... For another VERY STRANGE animal, you should google, "the ugly one, ontario"

  14. Most certainly an ugly relative of Shrek and yet it also reminds me of my pa-in-law when he has no teeth in - just don't tell him I said so.
