A Fish with Humanoid Teeth


This image comes from a National Geographic Blog. The subject - Piaractus brachypomus - an Amazonian fish with an eerily similar set of chompers to you and I. They use these flat masticators to crack nuts and seeds. I initially thought it was photo-shopped... Uncanny!

It does look like it has human teeth, do you think that it's a cross breed?

I showed this picture to my friend dentist in Fayetteville nc and he first told me that it was photoshopped. I showed him that there is a link to National Geographic Blog and he was shocked that there is such thing like a fish with humanoid teeth.

Wow is that for real? That looks not photoshopped for me. I have to validate that with my folks at the Pennant Hills Dentistry though.

If this picture was not edited at all then it's definitely freaky. It really does resemble into a human teeth. You can go to a dental care in Colorado springs and see dentures similar to the fish's teeth.

That certainly tops the creepiest photo of the year award! It should be hanged at my gentle dentist in jersey city wall.

Patrick Odea said...

I don't know about you guys but that looks every inch photoshopped! Hey Stew, better give it to some dentist champaign il for that matter.

This picture really freaked me out the first time I saw it. It looks like a human fish! I wonder if this is possible, or was it just Photoshopped? I'm definitely going to ask my dentist in hanahan about this on my next appointment.

This should be examined by any dentist in la. But it really looks exactly like human teeth. I wonder how did this fish got that. Experts should really see this.

That fish is called "Pacu" and is a very common species of omnivorous South American freshwater fish. And yes, that fish have squarer, straighter teeth just like human. Though, just by looking at the condition of the fish's teeth it may need a sedation dentist in Las Vegas. Lol!

Kinda creepy. This should be examined immediately by dentist in studio city. I'm sure they can tell if its a fraud or not.
