Jumpin’ Jack Splash: The pouting lumpsucker fish that looks like Mick Jagger

He’s called Mick, possesses a pair of  remarkably large lips and likes nothing better than commanding the attention of  an admiring crowd.

Indeed this little lumpsucker fish is a star  attraction at the Lyme Regis Aquarium in Dorset.

The next time Sir Mick Jagger is down that  way perhaps he should call in and compare pouts with his namesake.

The fish also seems to share Jagger’s  womanizing ways, as although they are normally a dull grey, they turn a  bright, vivid red colour for the mating season to show they are sexually available.

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, 69, is  famous for his pouting lips and expressive mouth that he passed onto his model  daughters Georgia May, Jade and Elizabeth Jagger.

Lumpsucker fish are small marine fish that  are found in the cold waters of the Arctic, North Atlantic, and mostly in the  North Pacific ocean.

They have spherical, portly bodies and  ‘suckers’ which are really modified pelvic fins which have evolved in adhesive  disks.

They are poor swimmers and spend most of  their time near the bottom of the ocean at depths of up to 1,700  metres.

The Lyme Regis Aquarium has introduced the  lumpsucker fish as its latest attraction for the people of Dorset.

They aim to encourage children and adults to  discover close up the local fish and marine life of the Jurassic coast and learn  about Lyme’s maritime history.

As well as the lumpsucker they have lobster,  starfish, ballan wrasse, short spined sea scorpion, and a sea mouse.

Kids are also encouraged to feed the mullet  daily.
