This peculiar fish, which looks like it could do with a visit to the dentist, was caught in Nags Head, North Carolina.
We've seen a number of 'fish with human-like teeth' over the years, but this one - which was caught by Nathan Martin and posted up on the Jennette's Pier Facebook page - is surely one of the strangest.
Sporting several rows of familiar-looking gnashers, the fish - a sheepshead - is actually known for its "human-like incisors and molars" which it uses to help it crush up barnacles, shrimp and oysters, according to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
When the image appeared online last week, social media users couldn't resist making jokes.
"Needs to floss," one user posted, while another likened the fish to talking horse Mister Ed.
Whether or not the fish ultimately ended up on someone's dinner plate however remains unclear.
