Fish with 'human' teeth caught in North Carolina

Recommended Posts

jethrofloyd

A photo of the fish was shared on Facebook this week by Jennette's Pier, a fishing destination in Nag's Head, North Carolina.

It was identified as a sheepshead fish, which has several rows of molars for crushing prey. The fish appears to have been given its name due to its mouth looking like the mouth of a sheep.

The fish was reportedly reeled in by Nathan Martin, a regular on the pier.

The guy in the piece mentioned that the fish was a fighter and it "tasted good".  Damned If I'm eating something that looks like it could eat me...

Wait a minute. That species of fish has likely been around longer that most hominids.

That means....

That fish is needed for dental students to practice also for dentist and a good practice to not jab our gums and bleed every time with a dental visit
