Sheepshead fish actually are pretty common, but this one's not-so-pearly-whites are freaky.

The sheepshead fish, which is actually pretty common, was brought in by Nathan Martin and posted to the Facebook page of Jennette’s Pier.

A spokesperson for the pier told CBS affiliate KENS5 that sheepshead feed off the pier’s barnacles.

Sheepshead “have human-like incisors and molars” to help crush their food, and enjoy shrimp and oysters, according to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

People on social media, of course, were eager to show off their biting humor.

“Needs to floss,” one wrote on the pier’s Facebook. “Mr Ed is missing his dentures,” cracked someone else. “I know people who would love to have that many teeth,” joked yet another.
