A rare fish caught in the US has become an internet sensation because its teeth look like human teeth!

The photo of the odd-looking fish was shared on social media by Jennette’s Pier.

However, the fish’s giant gnashers are actually perfectly normal. This type of fish is called a sheepshead, and they’re known for having several rows of stubbly teeth which are used for crushing their prey.

The fish appears to have been given its name as its mouth largely resembles that of a sheep.
