Woman reels in weird fish with two mouths


Posted on Thursday, 22 August, 2019 | Comment icon 19 comments

Why does this fish have two mouths ? Image Credit: Facebook / Debbie Geddes
Debbie Geddes had been fishing in Lake Champlain with her husband when she caught this peculiar specimen.
The bizarre fish, which is believed to be a trout, has what looks like two separate mouths.

"When it bit, it felt like I had a nice fish on," said Geddes. "I actually commented, 'I hope it's as big as it feels'. When we got it in the boat I couldn't believe what I was seeing! Two mouths! And yet this fish was healthy and thriving! Pretty amazing! We quickly took a few pictures and released the fish."

Photographs of the unusual catch later went viral, leading to a great deal of speculation over the nature of the fish on social media.

Some have speculated that the fish could be a mutant that was born with two mouths, while others subscribe to the theory that the second 'mouth' developed due to an injury the fish sustained.

"I just can't believe all the attention this has received," said Geddes.

"The public's responses and theories are quite interesting. I personally believe it was caused by a previous injury, most likely from another angler."

Sure, a bad injury, don't know if it was healing or was inflicted when catching it. Probably unsurvivable

If that fish could talk, it'd be a democrat...

I think you need to go out and take a walk, leave your cell phone at home and take a break from social media.  This is a thread about a deformed fish and you bring up your politics.  That is definitely a sign that you need to take a break and get your head back.

The company I worked for 30 years ago used to dump thorium  waste (same thing that used to make luminous watch dials) in a nearby creek.  When we got busted, our brilliant VP was quoted in the paper as saying, "We thought it would just wash out to sea."
