Instead of the usual catch, Debbie Geddes caught an odd-looking trout when she was fishing on Lake Champlain in upstate New York.
“When this particular fish bit, it felt like I had a nice fish on,” Geddes told Fox News. “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!”
The Knotty Boys Fishing Facebook page posted a picture of the fish and it received various comments.
“It’s just an old injury, not two-headed at all,” one person wrote.
Another commented, “Speaking as a fish biologist, clearly the isthmus below the lower jaw just got torn earlier in life (likely from some sort of angler related injury) and it healed over.”
“I think it is a deformity,” someone replied. “Something went awry embryologically.”
Apparently, Geddes and her husband sent the fish back into the lake after taking a photo of it.
What do you think is it?
