Are there really fish that have human-looking teeth?

    Yes.  The Ictiobus Cyprinellus (Latin for bullfish small-carp) or bigmouth buffalo or gourdhead is notable for having large humanlike teeth.  It is a member of the sucker family.  Another family of fish with human teeth is the collosa family (Latin for big) which includes the pacu or pirhanna.

    I just stumbled across a National Geographic article titled “Fish with Human-like Teeth” and thought the picture was definitely worth posting. As the above poster says, it’s a pacu. Their teeth are uniquely suited for their diet, which consists primarily of fruits and nuts.
