There are plenty of fish in the sea, so goes the saying – but not many look like this freaky fella.

The bizarre trout appears to have two mouths.

Angler Debbie Geddes was shocked to hook the apparent mutant while out on Lake Champlain in Plattsburgh, New York.

When she posted pictures of the unusual creature to Facebook, it inevitably went viral, with dozens of respondents offering theories on how a fish comes to have a double decker mouth.

“When it bit, it felt like I had a nice fish on,” wrote Ms Geddes who herself lives in Plattsburgh. “I actually commented, ‘I hope it’s as big as it feels’.

“When we got it in the boat I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! Two mouths! And yet this fish was healthy and thriving! Pretty amazing! We quickly took a few pictures and released the fish.”
