Someone’s Tweaked The Image Search Results For The Black Swallower Fish And LOL, Kanye’s Gonna Hate This
The black swallower fish is aptly named for its ability to swallow fish that are actually larger than itself due to an expanding jaw/mouth, and because it’s a deep sea fish who lives at depths of up to 9,000-feet below the ocean’s surface. The black swallower fish is also one of the most terrifying looking fish in the sea, but the image search results for this unique fish aren’t all scary, one of them is actually pretty f’n hilarious.
I came across the first picture on Imgur and was skeptical that these were the real Google Images search results, so I did my own Googling and Kanye West is going to fucking hate this:
There she is, Kim Kardashian West, every time you search the phrase ‘image of a black swallower’. I can’t be certain because I don’t know the ins and outs of Google’s algorithm but if I had to wager a guess I’d say that images of Kim Kardashian West show up because of her sex tape with Ray J, and her long history of dating only black males (I’d list them all but I really don’t give a flying fuck).

At the end of the day though I’m more interested in this Black Swallower fish than the fact that Google’s roasting Kim Kardashian by including her in the image search results. The fact that this fish can swallow other fish larger than itself is rather intriguing. Here’s an excerpt from the Black Swallower Wikipedia page that’s particularly fascinating:
The black swallower feeds on bony fishes, which are swallowed whole. With its greatly distensible stomach, it is capable of swallowing prey over twice its length and 10 times its mass. Its upper jaws are articulated with the skull at the front via the suspensorium, which allows the jaws to swing down and encompass objects larger than the swallower’s head. Theodore Gill speculated that the swallower seizes prey fishes by the tail, and then “walks” its jaws over the prey until it is fully coiled inside the stomach.
Black swallowers have been found to have swallowed fish so large that they could not be digested before decomposition set in, and the resulting release of gases forced the swallower to the ocean surface. This is, in fact, how most known specimens came to be collected. In 2007, a black swallower measuring 19 cm (7.5 in) long was found dead off Grand Cayman. Its stomach contained a snake mackerel (Gempylus serpens) 86 cm (34 in) long, or four and a half times its own length.
That’s some Sci-Fi/Thriller/Horror Movie shit right there, and this fish is awesome. If you’re interested in reading more about the Black Swallower like I was I suggest you follow that link above and head on over to the Wikipedia page.
