A rare fish with human-like teeth has been caught in the United States, leaving beachgoers baffled.
The creature was caught by an angler off Jennette’s Pier, a popular fishing destination in Nag’s Head, North Carolina.
Photos of the fish went viral and it was later identified as a sheepshead fish.

The fish was reeled in by Nathan Martin, and the photo was shared on Facebook.
The fisherman said he had been hoping to catch a sheepshead fish but was shocked after coming 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 so-called “demon fish” have a mouthful of molars, and two incisors.
