A RUSSIAN fishermen got the shock of his life when he reeled in a fish that appeared to have a set of human teeth.
A report in Pravda stated that the fisherman, from Arkhangelsk, in Russia, caught the fish in the Northern Dvina River. ‘When I opened it I nearly dropped the thing in surprise,’ said Alexander Korobov.
Experts from the Knipovich Polar Research Institute of Marine Fisheries and Oceanography believe the fish is an herbivorous piranha.
‘It is very unlikely that it made its way from its natural tropical waters to our Arctic and then into the river so we can only assume it was dumped by an owner of exotic fish,’ said one scientist.
