5. Mirror Carp

The Mirror Carp is merely a variety of the Common Carp, characterised by having only one or two rows of very large and shiny scales on its sides. Another variety, the Leather Carp, has no scales. There is also a golden variety, not to be mistaken for Goldfish. All these varieties have the four barbels, the long dorsal fin (dented, and higher at the beginning) and the mode of life of the Common Carp; all four may be found living together in the same pond, and interbreeding freely.
