    sheepshead have the same kind of teeth. they are made that way to enable them to break open clam and barnacle shells because that is what their main diet consists of. hence the nickname “shellcrackers”. i would imagine these fish are set up for much the same type of eating habits.

    it’s obviously photoshopped, the teeth are a different pair in each photo

    Real or Fake ? whats the source of the post ?

    “Photoshopped”, lol

    one of these is a sheepshead, which is a real fish

    whether the one with the tongue-looking appendage is real im uncertain, but sheepshead are real

  5. jj says:

    these are completely real, just seen them on monster fish on nat geo wild. they have teeth like that because they eat fallen fruit and the human-like teeth combined with their strong muscular jaws provide a huge bite force

    It’s obvious that those are two different species of fish by the mouth, eye, and nose structures. The first one is a freshwater Pacu. The second and third pictures are of a Sheepshead fish. Both were identified by scientists a long time ago, not sure where that BS headline came from.

  7. Art says:

    It’s not photoshopped – look up “Archosargus probatocephalus” or as Corey says “Sheeps head” – it’s real not fake, scientists have known about it for a long time.

  8. The Dude says:

    it’s a real fish called pacu. featured on the tv show “hooked” look at the link.
