This. Is. Terrifying.
A fisherman from the Arkhangelsk region in Russia caught a peculiar looking fish with human-like-teeth, Pravda reported Monday.
The man, Alexander Korobov, is an experienced fisherman, but says that even he was shocked with what he found.
"When I opened it I nearly dropped the thing in surprise," Korobov said, according to the Metro.
Korobov took the mysterious fish to the local department for fishery, where specialists found it difficult to identify the catch.
After a thorough inspection, Andrey Rumyantsev, senior inspector of the Department of State Control and Protection of Water Resources of the Arkhangelsk region determined that the fish was not from the area.
Gennady Dvorykankin of the Knipovich Polar Research Institute of Marine Fisheries and Oceanography said scientists there 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," he said, according to the Mirror.
