If you’re a fan of TV show “The Simpsons,” then you might remember one particular episode where a three-eyed fish named “Blinky” popped up in a river in Springfield located right next to a nuclear power plant.
Well, ladies and gentlemen … meet the real-life version of Blinky:
Has real life imitated fiction? It seems that Blinky, the three-eyed goldfish from The Simpsons may not be such a far-fetched idea, following a recent discovery in Argentina!
A group of fishermen on a reservoir in the Córdoba province of Argentina landed something a little bit different. The fish they caught had an extra eye.
The reservoir where the three-eyed wolffish was reeled in has hot water from a nearby nuclear facility pumped into it, prompting concern among locals.
One of the fishermen, Julián Zmutt told infobae.com: “We were fishing and we got the surprise of getting this rare specimen. As it was dark at that time we did not notice, but then you looked at him with a flashlight and saw that he had a third eye.”
Rather unsurprisingly, the fishermen decided not to eat the fish, which is instead to be tested to see whether the mutation actually occurred as a result of something in the water.
