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.
