The mystery of the so-called Japan crop circles under the sea has been solved, as shown in the photo below. It was proved to be made by a fish, contrary to what some people think it could be UFO. The news was featured in Japan TV last week titled “The Discovery of a Century: Deep Sea Mystery Circle.”

As noted at Spoon & Tamago on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, underwater photographer Yoji Ookata made a dive in the Pacific Ocean early this year, and noticed crop circles carved in the sand at 80 feet below sea level. The set of circular pattern was said to have around 6.5 feet in outside diameter.

According to the report, which got its report from NHK, Ookata discovered the crop circles near Amami Oshima at the southern part of Japan. He later returned to the same spot along with a TV crew and underwater camera, where he learned that the mysterious circle was formed by a small fish.

Apparently, the fish was identified as a puffer fish only a few inches in length, and swims around a circular pattern in the sand using a single, which eventually formed perfect the set of crop circles. The female fish was known to be attracted to the hills and valleys within the sand and carefully passed through them.

Scientists noted that male and female puffer fish would mate and lay eggs in the center of the circle, and that the more circles formed the more likely possible that that the female will be attracted to the male. The little sea shells around was also being believed to serve as vital nutrients to the eggs as they hatch.
