A BABY shark with a “human face” has been dubbed the real-life baby shark after it was discovered in Indonesia.
The mutant shark was caught by Abdullah Nuren, 48, in the waters near Rote Ndao in the East Nusa Tenggara province.
He had accidentally caught an adult shark in his trawler net, and when he cut open its stomach, he found three pups inside.
Nuren was stunned when he saw one of the sharks had a face that looked human.
The pup had two round eyes, with almost a cartoon character look to them.
“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.
“Two were like the mother and this one looked like it had a human face.”
He took the baby shark home to his family, who have helped him preserve it.
He said he was offered money from neighbours who wanted to buy the shark off him, but he rejected their offers.
“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.”
This comes after a bizarre fish which looks exactly like an alligator has sparked a marine mystery after it was found dead by a British expat in Singapore.
The “prehistoric” creature with huge jaws and razor-sharp teeth left locals baffled after it was discovered on the banks of the MacRitchie Reservoir.
Karen Lythgoe, 31, from Scotland, documented the startling discovery of the giant fish.
“There were some people already looking at it from the boardwalk, but that was too far away to see what it was,” she said.

“We though it was a crocodile from that position, but it didn’t look quite right, so we went off the path to get a closer look.
“It wasn’t a crocodile. It was like something you might see in a zoo – it looked prehistoric with its big jaws and teeth.
“I was shocked and intrigued at how it came to be in the reservoir.”
