LAKE EUFAULA, Okla. – A fisherman recently made a rare catch at Lake Eufaula.

Austin Claunch posted a picture of the unusual fish to the Oklahoma Fishing Fools Facebook page asking if anyone had ever seen anything like it.

We saw the post and were just as curious to find out more about this Holstein cow-looking fish.

After sending the image to the Oklahoma Wildlife Department, we learned the fish is actually a leucistic catfish.

Leucistic refers to a condition of partial pigment loss.

The condition only affects the fish’s appearance, not its health.
