A rare fish with human-like teeth caught in the United States, has stunned fish lovers and researchers.
The specie was identified as a sheepshead fish, which has several rows of molars for crushing prey, according to the BBC.
The fish which appears to have been given its name due to its mouth looking like the mouth of a sheep, was reportedly reeled in by Nathan Martin, a regular on the pier.
He said he had been hoping to catch a sheepshead fish when he came face-to-face with a “mouth full of teeth”.
“It’s a very good fight when you’re fighting on the line, it’s a really good catch, and it tastes very good,” he told McClatchy News.
The post – captioned with the hashtag #bigteethbigtimes – caused quite a stir.
“Is this where dentures come from?” wrote one user.
“That fish has better teeth than me,” wrote another”, the Media outlet reported.
