It's a slow news week OK, so here we go: "The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources on Wednesday asked its social media followers to identify a fish with “human-like incisors.”
"The department posted a riddle to its Facebook page, which reads: “You’ll need a saltwater fishing license to catch me! I like to hang out near rocks, jetties, reefs and even bridges … The coolest thing about me? I have human-like incisors and molars to help crush my food. I like shrimp and oysters just like you do!”
"Many people commented that the toothy fish appears to be a sheepshead, which is also known as a convict fish because its black and white stripes resemble a convict’s jail attire.
“My favorite fish to eat . . . but they kinda give me the creeps with their people teeth,” one Facebook user wrote.
The fish are typically found along the east coast of the US, but also in the Gulf of Mexico.
