These Little Fish Are So Cute That They Suck On To You!



This little fish is so cute that it resemble the goldfish like character Ponyo in the movie "Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea" by Miyazaki Hayao. It's actually a fish called Balloon Lumpfish or Lumpsucker found in the cold waters of the Arctic, North Atlantic, and North Pacific oceans. Large number of species are found in North Pacific ocean near Japan. They are so cute that they look very much like the cartoon character Ponyo in the movie "Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea".

These Lumpfish are poor swimmer and they have to rely on their suction cup to click on to rocks and shell. Their living habitat is typically in muddy water, which offers camouflage safety for these little guys, and in deep water at depths down to 90 to 150 metres. Some are even found in the depths of 1700 meters.  Such habitat cannot be easily reproduce in home environment and even aquariums so they are rarely shown in public.
