Viral video of a shark with human like face causes stare on the social media in Indonesia



A viral video and picture of a fish-like creature with a human face have caught many netizens attention on the internet.

The 43-seconds video which was posted and shared by an online user showed a 48-year-old fisherman named Abdullah Ferro describing how he found the baby shark with a human face from its mother’s stomach. Abdullah said that at that time he accidentally found a shark that had entered his fishing net off the coast of Pepela.


The incident which happened in Rote Ndao Regency, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) in Indonesia has kept many people wondering how the baby shark had such a unique human face. A fisheries expert from the Bogor Agricultural Institute (IPB) Sulistiono, doubts the viral video of human-like shark calves. He suspected the video was a hoax or untrue.


“It’s a little weird. As the picture is made. Especially the eyes. Sharks are a carnivore. So that the eye morphology looks like the eyes of a hunter, “said Sulistiono to Okezone, Wednesday

According to him, the shark’s eyes are not like fish in general. “This eye shape is rare in aquatic animals. For example, an omnivore goldfish, ”he said.
