An unusual fish was found off a Japanese island — and the scaly creature bears an uncanny resemblance to lovable ogre Shrek. The fella’s something called an Asian Sheepshead Wrasse. While the bulbous head is normal for the species, area divers claim this guy’s goofy features and Shreky ears are anything but common.
