Man Catches Fish With A Mole In Its Mouth

There's not that much you can expect to happen during a fishing trip, really.

As a pastime, it isn't really one that is known for its theatrics or surprises. At most a larger fish than you expected to catch could take your bait and the adrenaline may surge through your body for at least ten, maybe even 20, seconds.

That being said, catching a fish with something in its mouth is quite exciting.

The 22-year-old angler from Fair Grove, Missouri, USA caught a bass in his parents' eight acre pond, but got quite a unique two-in-one catch.

Eventually, when he came to remove the hook from the fish's mouth he noticed something popping out - a little mole.

"I went to lip him so I could remove my hook and that's when I saw something in its mouth," he said. "I didn't know what it was and I almost dropped the fish back in the water.

"I was hesitant to remove the hook, but upon further inspection I realised it was a mole inside the fish's mouth.

"I had no idea how the bass got a hold of a mole.

"I was speechless - I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

"I knew I had a once-in-a-lifetime catch, and I couldn't pass up the chance to get a few pictures of it."

Sadly the mole died, but the fish was able to swim away alive. It does look bloody scary though, like one of those mad deep sea creatures you only see on dark articles on the 12th page of Google.

It's not too uncommon for fishermen to catch things with other creatures inside them, either.

Judging at how unappetising and bitey this fish looks, I gather this was not caught for food, unless this was actually hooked by those on The Island with Bear Grylls, who would just about eat anything.

Whatever, whoever caught this horrible little fish probably didn't expect to find a snake inside its belly too.

That's the food chain right there, can snakes even swim? Yes, they are called water moccasins.
