Re: Fish riddle and answer later

You are correct, Matt!!! I am impressed.
The next one will be harder.

The leafy slow moving dragon is a pure carnivor: a leaf with quite appetite.

The next riddle will be back with great Spanish artist......amazing be able to relate different fishes to two great artists!

So your riddle that fits your answer is:

OK, let move on next one.....
This marine fish belongs to the family Scombridae is the subject in a masterpiece by a great Spanish artist (not Piccaso) in his final years.

Re: Fish riddle and answer later

I think it maybe tuna, but I'm trying to figure out the artist. Goya? I have a masters degree in fine art so I'm kinda upset with myself on this one.

Artist's rendering is priceless, even though may look ugly to you. Beauty is in the eye of beholder!!!

Re: Fish riddle and answer later

Merry Xmas, everyone!! Let's start the fish brain game again:

This marine fish's name is related to the mythological character, Peleus, is a popular but relatively rare fish.

Re: Fish riddle and answer later

Nice try, Brian. Nope. It's so nicely ugly but nothing to do with the answer!

Re: Fish riddle and answer later

I thought the sea nymph Thetis turned herself into a cuttle fish and that's when Peleus grabbed her.
I got no more guesses, someone else will have to get this one.

Re: Fish riddle and answer later

You are very close but actually it's directly related to Pleus!

Re: Fish riddle and answer later

Thetis is the mother and Peleus the father. Cuttle fish is not rare, though.
