Fisherman Baffled By Baby Shark With Strange 'Human Face'

Fisherman Baffled By Baby Shark With Strange 'Human Face'

The fisherman believes the catch will bring him good luck

A fisherman in Indonesia was left baffled after catching a baby shark with a bizarre 'human face'. Watch footage of the creature here:

Abdullah Nuren caught the baby shark (doo doo doo doo doo doo) on a fishing trip in Rote Ndao in East Nusa Tenggara on Sunday (21 February).

The shark was actually one of three unborn sharks Abdullah found in the stomach of a shark he caught in his trawler net.

The other two pups looked the same as their mother, while the third, well, you can see for yourself.

Abdullah, 48, said: "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.

Is that a 'human face'?

"Two were like the mother and this one that looked like it had a human face."

I personally have never seen a human with a face like that, but whatever you say Abdullah.

He subsequently took the shark back to his family and it has become the talk of the neighbourhood. But despite receiving offers, Abdullah has no plans to sell it.

He said: "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."

Not sure how he worked that one out, given the shark's poor track record in the luck department, but if Abdullah thinks it's a human-faced good luck charm, who are we to tell him otherwise?


In a similar vein, who is photographer and videographer Tanner Mansell to tell people that a shark he photographed doesn't look like Donald Trump?

Tanner snapped the shark off the coast of Florida, but was surprised by the reaction when he uploaded the photos to social media.

One person said: "Am I alone to see a Trump hair shape?"

Another added: "I wanna apologise in advance to the shark but he looks like Trump."

A third commented: "Tell me why I thought this was a Trump face swap."

Reacting to the comparison, Tanner said: "When I first posted the photo, it completely blew up.

"I was surprised to see the number of comments it got regarding Trump.

"I didn't see it at first but I can see what people are saying [it]. That was always the top comment with many people agreeing.

"I think it's funny and unique. I have never heard of anybody comparing a shark to a human."
