While enjoying an afternoon fishing on Buffalo Springs Lake, Scott Curry reeled in a 20-pound fish - a fine dinner - but he's having reservations about eating something that could bite him back - the fish has small pearly teeth akin to a human toddler's.
The General Manager of Buffalo Springs Lake, Greg Thornton, said, "I've lived out here 36 years, and I've never seen a fish like that out here in my life." Officials speculate this fish may be a pacu or tambaqui that was released by a careless owner.
After Curry informed interviewers that he had seen another similar fish at the time of his toothy catch, Lake officials posted a $100 bounty on any fish caught with choppers. The original catch is displayed in the spring pond at Buffalo Springs Lake.
