But the discovery of the Chimera on the coast of Las Francisco. The researchers looked to capture the Chimera for further study, but were aspersed at how fast the fish moved. They were not prepared and lost the fish.

"This is much easier said than done, because these fish are too large, fast, and agile to be caught," the institute notes. "If and when the researchers can get their hands on one of these fish, they will be able to make detailed measurements of its fins and other body parts and perform DNA analysis on its tissue."

The Chimerasare believed to be a variety of species. But the inability to find the species' habitat has made it tough to study. But after the latest and only footage scientists believe that the Chimera prefers rocky places.
