Viral Video of Semicossyphus Reticulatus

The trending video of a giant fish seems like an animated fish patiently waiting for seafood from a man underwater. He is treating the predator fish as a pet, and the fish is so cool. At the end of the video, the fish loses its patience and finally gets its food from the man. And surprisingly, the face of the fish looks like a distorted human face. It is “Semicossyphus reticulatus”, one of the largest species of wrasse found in the western Pacific Ocean.
