Fish with Lips and Teeth: This fish with luscious human lips and teeth has perplexed and aroused a great deal of social media buzz. A fish bearing a bizarre, human-like kisser and teeth has caused social media users to wonder if the luscious-lipped critter even exists.
The viral pic of the critter, which was reportedly caught in Malaysia, was uploaded July 2 by an Indonesian Twitter user with the caption “her lips are hotter than mine.”
Indeed, the photo shows the fish sporting “sultry” soup coolers that are almost identical to an Instagram star’s filler-injected pout. The resemblance is so uncanny that many Twitter users wondered if the viral pic was fake.
“So that thing real?” wondered one flabbergasted commenter.
“This mf got teeth??? Damn!!” exclaimed another about its humanoid chompers.
“Angelina Jolie is shaking,” quipped one Twitter wit in reference to the voluptuous-lipped actress. Another compared them to influencer Kylie Jenner’s supersized smackers.
Some of Twitter’s resident digital wizards even completed the look by hilariously Photoshopping eyelashes and acrylic nails onto the pic.
Despite looking doctored, the toothy critter may be a real, live triggerfish that inhabits tropical seas around the globe, reports National Geographic. The triggerfish uses its people-like teeth to crunch crabs and sea urchins, which they flip over to get at the soft underbelly beneath, as demonstrated in this fascinating video.
The triggerfish isn’t the only ocean dweller whose appearance evokes human anatomy. In December, a California beach was besieged by a flotilla of pulsating “penis fish,” which have spawned hundreds of jokes and memes on social media.
“Ladies, if you aren’t satisfied at home, remember there are plenty of fish in the sea,” Tweeted comedian Mark Normand with a pic of the phallic-looking animals.
