A North Carolina man couldn't believe his eyes when he caught a fish with teeth like human beings.

Nathan Martin of South Mills recently went fishing at Jennette's Pier, a favorite fishing location, with the intent of catching a sheepshead fish.

Eventually, Nathan caught one, but as he reeled in the fish, he was startled to see the creature seeming to smile at him and showing a mouthful of teeth.

In an interview with McClatchy News, Nathan recalled his moment of catching the toothy fish and mentioned that he baited it with sand fleas.

"It's a very good fight when you're fighting on the line, it's a really good catch, and it tastes very good," he explained.

Nathan added that he intends on mounting the sheepshead on the wall.

Jennette's Pier's official Facebook page posted pictures of the angler after catching the fish. They simply captioned the post: "#bigteethbigtimes."

As soon as the photos of the creature were posted, a lot of people responded with shock.
