Hyderabad: As a rare fish with human-like teeth was spotted by some beachgoers in the Outer Banks in North Carolina, it soon became an internet sensation. The pictures of the mysterious fish have raised many eyebrows while some just seem surprised by the fish’s dentistry secrets.
The pictures, which were shared by Jennette’s Pier, a fishing destination in Nags Head, North Carolina, on their Facebook account, shows the nine-pound creature opening its mouth and displaying human-like teeth, which makes it look like it’s wearing dentures.
The fish was identified as a sheepshead (as its mouth looks like that of a sheep) is seen having several rows of molars in its mouth which it uses for crushing oysters and other prey. Sheepshead fish are usually found near rocks, jetties, reefs, and even bridges. They are also known as the “convict fish” because of their black-and-white stripes.
The photo was captioned “#bigteethbigtimes” and its shows the sheepshead flashing a top and bottom set of pearly-ish whites.
