A giant oarfish washed ashore on the beach of Los Yuyales in Peru around 1:30pm on February 15, 2018, so just 24 hours before a very powerful earthquake of 7.2-magnitude hit Mexico on February 16, 2018. Finding a giant oarfish washed up on the beach is a rare occurrence, since the fish is a deepwater species that’s rarely seen at all. Now, some are claiming that oarfish washing ashore is a sign that an earthquake will soon follow. Coincidence or not?

The villagers were afraid to approach the 5,50 meters (18 feet) deep seas creature as an animal of this type had never been seen before.

Now, some are claiming that oarfish washing ashore is a sign that an earthquake will soon follow. Shortly before the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami struck Japan, about 20 oarfish stranded themselves on beaches in the area.

The oarfish is known in Japan as ryugu no tsukai or “messenger from the sea god’s palace.”. Dozens of the deep-sea denizens were discovered by Japanese fishermen around the time a powerful 8.8-magnitude earthquake struck Chile in March 2010.

Kiyoshi Wadatsumi, a specialist in ecological seismology explains deep-sea fish living near the sea bottom are more sensitive to the movements of active faults than those near the surface of the sea.

Two days ago, fishermen fear the apocalypse after extremely rare 15ft-long, deep-sea megamouth shark washed up on their beach in the Philippines.

And then 24 hours the M7.2 earthquake hit Mexico:
