He said:

"It has a zebra pattern of colouring and the body is more like a snapper-type fish – very compact but meaty.
“The teeth can only be described as human-like teeth but upon further inspection you’ll notice they have rows of these teeth like a shark.
“Most of them have two to three rows with very strong bite power – not enough to take a finger but enough to make you never go near the teeth again.”

Paul went on to give an account in detail what the strange fish uses its teeth for.

“They use these teeth to break barnacles, clam shells, and crab shells.
“They mainly consumes crustaceans, so they need these type of teeth to break them open.
“Then the shells come out of their gills almost like a filter so they do not consume a lot of the shell.”

The 33-year-old disclosed that the fish which are easy to catch, are pretty good swimmers and have crabs and shrimps for food.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian man had caught a weird fish while digging a hole in Yenagoa.

According to a post shared by a Facebook user, Emmanuel Emmanuel Udoh, he was carrying out excavations in a building site when he saw the fish which was supposed to be in the water. Udoh is however questioned if the fish moved to dry land due to pollution in the river.

Sharing the post he wrote:

"About yesterday! OK ...while excavating in a residential/built-up area I found lots of this, and they are quite huge! This one na small one sef For real......
"Before I ask if it's edible. I wonder what could make fishes leave the rivers and streams to shallow waters in residential areas.
"Could it be that the natural waters have been so destroyed by oil exploration, that they now migrate to safer waters with less pollution or it's just a natural occurrence? Now is this edible? Cos there are lots of them here."
