The lionhead goldfish is a form of a fancy goldfish which is bred in China and developed to resemble the mythical Chinese lion-dog.
THE PHYSICAL FEATURES OF THE LIONHEAD GOLDFISH
While some fish from this breed has an abundance of growth, others don’t have much of it.
The dorsal-less goldfish has a hooded head and doesn’t support a curved back like most fancy varieties do.
The Lionhead Goldfish has a more rounded or egg-shaped body unlike the Shubunkins and the Common Goldfish that have a long, slender body.
This variety of Goldfish was bred in China to have a "hood" which somewhat depicts the image of a mythical Chinese lion-dog.
