A fisherman has shared a video of an unusual 'suction cup' fish that he caught that can stick to walls 'for quite a while'.

TikTok star Blake Hass caught the lumpfish while he was out at sea and decided to film it so he could share the footage with his 108,000 followers.

He explained that these fish have a suction cup on the bottom and if you press them against a wall they can hold on, even out of the water.

Blake added that it's considered lucky to kiss these fish on the mouth before throwing them back in the water, so that's what he did – although he didn't film that bit.

What do you think about the lumpfish, have you ever seen one? Let us know in the comments

In the video, Blake said: "A lot of times in the summer we catch these lumpfish that have a suction cup on the bottom side of them.

"If you stick them up to a flat surface they can actually stick for quite a while and hang on.

"They say it's good luck to kiss them on the lips before you throw them back so that's what we did."

After it was uploaded the video soon went viral with over seven million views in the first three days, alongside 637,000 likes and almost 3,000 comments.

One said: "That's so cute, I would hang them on my fridge."

And another added: "Bruh I'd be sticking him to everything."

While a third had a burning question, and said: "You're joking right, you don't actually kiss the fish – right?"

In other news, a man recently beat a billion to one odds after he found two incredibly rare lobsters – at a fishmonger in a landlocked county of Britain.

Joseph Lee, 47, is a caterer and was shopping at Makro Wholesale, a cash and carry, when he stopped by the fishmongers to peruse their wares.

When there he couldn't believe his eyes, as he saw two orange Canadian lobsters – which are so rare that just one in 30 million are ever caught, making the odds of finding two of them one in a billion.
