The Legendary Fur-bearing Trout

The furry trout is a fictional creature that is native to Canada. Some people say that it has evolved to grow a thick, white fur coat to cope with the extreme cold while others say that somebody accidentally spilt four cups of hair tonic into the River Arkansas.

In reality, this may be a misunderstanding. The fish might have been infected with a fungus, "cotton mould," which makes it appear furry.

People have provided some specimens, but they all turned out to be fake.

This specimen is from a Belgium zoologist.
The fur bearing trout of Canada still remains a mystery.

  1. I think people have caught it and covered it in fur.
