Baby shark with unusual human face caught in Indonesia

A very strange looking baby shark, with what resembles a cartoonish human face, was caught in Indonesia and the video has since gone viral.

An Indonesian fisherman was left stunned when he opened up the belly of a mama shark to discover three baby sharks inside her stomach with one of the pups having, what many are calling, a 'human-like face.'

Uncanny human resemblance


Although not exactly the most accurate representation of a human face, the resemblance is more cartoonish than anything else. Abdullah Nuren, caught the pup while on a fishing trip in Rote Ndao in East Nusa Teggara which was actually inside the belly of a shark he caught in his trawler net.

Three unborn sharks were found inside the mother shark with the other two pups showing no signs of unusual physical characteristics.


48-year-old Abdullah explains:

I initially found a mother shark caught in the trawler net. The next day I split the belly of the mother shark and found three pups in the stomach. Two were like the mother and this one that looked like it had a human face.

A sign of good luck

Now the fisherman says his eerie-looking baby shark is the talk of the town with some even asking to buy it from him but he has refused all offers claiming that it has become his good luck charm:

My home has been crowded with people who want to see the shark. Many people want to buy it, but I will preserve it instead. I think it will bring me good luck.

Take a look at the video above to see the shark with the human face!
