In Arkansas, America, a man has found a rare gold bass fish, which biologists call one in a million. Here Josh Rodgers has found this ‘treasure’ while fishing in Beaver Lake. Arkansas Game and Fish Commission biologist John Stein has said that the ‘goldfish’ bass fish look like this because of a genetic glitch. Stein has said, ‘This different fish has Xanthochromism, in which the yellow color comes instead of the thick pigment. It is quite rare and it occurs naturally. Roger has told that first he saw the fish and felt that if it was sick. He said that he did not think about it for a long time. Later shared the picture of the fish on social media and sent it to friends. After seeing the reaction of the people, he felt that maybe he should not have thrown it back. This fish was 16 inches long and must have been about a kilo.
The golden penguin was seen in February
There is a lot of enthusiasm among biologists and photographers about different colored creatures. Wildlife photographer Yves Adams, who was on a tour of South Georgia in February, couldn’t believe it when he saw a yellow penguin. Penguins are usually black and white in color and have a yellow patch on their head and neck. Adams says that such a color may have been caused by Leucism. This is a kind of mutation due to which melanin is not produced in the feathers. Because of this, white, yellow or patchy colors are seen. Because of this, there can also be such penguins that are completely white.
