Transcript of The Blobfish
What Family Is It Part Of?
The Blobfish is part of the Psychrolutidae family. This family is made up of about 40 different species, one of them being the blobfish. All animals in this family look like tadpoles (huge heads and long thin bodies), except these ones grow up to 30cm long!
Where Are They Found?
They are normally found in the deep seas surrounding Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania. Blobfish can cope with the high pressure of the water because their flesh is very much like jelly which helps them with boyancy.
What Do They Eat?
They eat crustaceans such as crabs, lobsters and pretty much anything that wanders past their mouth.

The Blobfish on average lives about 130 years. Sometimes its a lot less sometimes its a bit more. It all depends on where there swimming.

What Is A Blobfish?
Funnily enough a blobfish is a fish. They don't have any muscles. They only move if there there is food near enough for them to quickly dart and grab it. They live on top of the sea bed but sleep in the middle of the sea.
