This Fish Has A Human Face

Initially, I wasn’t sure if I really believed the existence of this one. Then I saw the photo, and it’s the stuff you’d see in your nightmares. A fisherman from Indonesia discovered this mutant fish or baby shark with human-like facial features. Just look at its eyes! The fisherman, Abdullah Nuren, found the creature inside a mother shark he cut open: 

Nuren said that two of the baby pups looked like their mother, while the third had two large eyes under its snout that made it look like a surprised human face. But instead of throwing this mutant fish back into the ocean and apologizing to whatever god he clearly angered, Nuren took the baby shark home so that his family could preserve it. That’s right, Nuren wants to keep this thing. Like, around the house. Open mouth agape, with giant eyes staring at his every movement. Good luck sleeping, Nuren!

Twitter user @MaouNoah has pointed out that this mutant fish has likely been affected with Cyclopia, which happens when the genes that divide the eyes and face get mutated. Instead of the face becoming symmetrical, the face shows abnormalities, like what is happening with this baby shark. @MaouNoah also shared an image of another similar mutant shark, showing there are different levels of severity. The photo features a shark with one eye, but with two pupils. The user also says that few fetuses with Cyclopia survive the pregnancy.
