According to

Scientists just discovered six new species of bristlenose catfish in the Amazon. In an evolutionary move that takes ‘catfishing’ to a whole new, kind of sweet level, the males have tentacled faces to attract females. The tentacles look like eggs, and when females see a male with a tentacled face, they see a good potential father. The discovery of these new species might pave the way for conservation work in the Amazon.
