August 7 (IndiaToday) – The pictures of a fish with human-like teeth, which was caught in the United States, are creating a lot of buzz on the internet.
The fish was caught by fisherman Nathan Martin on August 3. The pictures of Martin posing with the fish were shared by Jennette’s Pier, a fishing destination in Nag’s Head, North Carolina.
The fish has been identified as a sheepshead fish, which has several rows of molars for crushing prey. The fish has been given its name due to its mouth looking like the mouth of a sheep.
According to Scientific American, the sheepshead’s teeth are similar to those of humans since they, too, are omnivores.
The fish is commonly found along the Atlantic coast. They can grow up to 3 feet long and eat a variety of oysters, clams, crustaceans and plant matter.
