A fish with a full mouth of human teeth was caught in a river in Russia. The photo of the fish made its rounds on the internet earlier this week.
Aleks Korobov, a 50-year-old angler, caught the fish on the Northern Dvina River, according to Metro.
Korobov opened the mouth of the fish and that's when he noticed that it had a full mouth of teeth. That's when he almost dropped the Bream fish.
According to Daily Mail, Korobov decided to go to the pub and show his friends what he caught, but at first they thought it was a joke. One of his friends said that sometimes Korobov can play jokes and sometimes he tells tall tails when he comes into the pub.
The friend continued to say that when they actually took a look at it, everyone was shocked and they never seen anything like it.
Korobov wanted an expert opinion and that's when he decided to contact the Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography.
An expert, Gennady Dvorykankin, said that they performed an autopsy, as well as conducting a few examinations to determine what type of species it was and to find out why it had human teeth.
Dvorykankin said that they were convinced that the fish was a member of the Piranha family. He continued to say that the fish was probably dumped by an owner of exotic fish.
Korobov said that when he tells fishing stories in the future, he doesn't think anyone will be doubting him.
