Grotesque looking fish found dead in Florida waterway

Putnam County, FL - A woman has gone viral after sharing a photo of a "demon fish" to a Florida Facebook group.

Central Florida resident Tammy Jenkins posted photos of the fish on the Florida Photography Facebook group on November 10th and asked other users to identify the fish that she found at Johnson Field Boat Ramp in Putnam County.

Facebook users commented on the fish's bizarre look and toothy smile, with some comparing it to a vampire, and others stating that the fish is going to give them nightmares.

Many users correctly guessed the specifies, most likely a bowfin, which is commonly known as a mudfish.

The bowfin is native to Florida and known for its sharp teeth and aggressive behavior.

Officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission confirmed that is what the dead fish is thought to be.
