Called “Nazo no Sakana” or “The Mysterious Fish,” it is the newest mascot for the Japanese baseball team Chiba Lotte Marines, reports Kotaku.
The team currently has three other mascots called Zu-chan, Rine and Cool.
It’s not quite clear as to how the character relates to the team. Looking at its design, Nazo no Sakana could be based on a deep ocean fish called the Anglerfish.
If the mascot’s purpose is to grab attention, he’s doing a good job just being there. Alfred Bayle/JB
