Favorite Pet is a Fish

I died and came back to life. My blood is not easily able to go through my body. My favorite pet is a fish. Who am I?

A shark. Sharks experience tonic immobility, also known as apparent death, where they appear to have died. Blood does not easily flow through their bodies, forcing sharks to swim continuously to circulate their blood. Lastly, sharks have pet fish called Remora (sometimes called suckerfish). They feed on parasites on the sharks and leftovers, and they use the shark as transport and protection.

A big thanks to Saravana for answering this.

Lazarus from the bible! he rose from the dead, when he was deceased blood can’t flow through his body & he was a fisherman hence favorite pet is a fish!

It’s a shark. Died and coming back to life is tonic immobility which is a mysterious shark behaviour. Blood not easily flow through my body is referring to a shark has to constantly swim or else it would drown. That is the reason why we find many sharks trapped in safety nets on beaches often dies, they can no longer swim. There is a fish called the remora which often accompany a shark. It eats the left overs of a sharks kill, thus it’s pet fish.

A turtle. Some turtles hibernate “die and come back to life” at the bottom of ponds, under the ice. During that time, there blood doesn’t circulate very much. They are accompanied by fish.

I’m still stumped on this one. I love everyone’s input, but I just don’t feel like we’ve landed on an answer that fully satisfies the riddle.

If not Jesus Christ, who died but rose again and his blood of Life must easily flow to his people.
How about a ‘Mermaid’. They may die but has the magic wand to let them live again if they want. Then they live and love fishes around them.

And does the blood of a Mermaid cannot easily flow throughout her body?
Maybe Yes, similar to shark as explained by Raja.

someone who drowned and got saved by a fishlike creature. they died, came back to life, and asuming they’re thankful their favorite animal would be a fish/fishlike creature.

i came to the same conclusion as Saravana Raja when i first read the riddle.

i think the answer is Lazarus from the bible,he is famous & widely known for rising from the dead which satisfies the first part of the riddle. Obviously blood would not flow easily through his body when he was dead & after further research (including my local priest) i found out Lazarus was a fisherman & obviously a fisherman would have a fish as a pet or collection as a stamp collector would collect stamps or dog lover would have a dog as a pet.

I too think it’s Jesus Christ. Communion wine (representing the blood) is not easily able to go through communion wafers (representing the body). And his symbol is a fish.
