Fish with two mouths caught in Australian lake

A bony bream with two mouths has turned up in a net at Lake Bonney in South Australia's Riverland. Garry Warrick said he caught the unusual fish in the lake or one of the creeks adjoining it.

"Both mouths are actually joined together," he said. "The top one opens and closes but the bottom one looks permanently open. Other than that, it looks like a normal fish."

Mr Warrick has worked as a commercial fisherman in the region for 30 years and catches about 100 tonnes of carp and bream each year. He said this was the first time he had come across a bony bream with two mouths.

"I normally pack them for cray bait and fertiliser but this one I put in the freezer," Mr Warrick said. The two-mouthed fish was alive when Mr Warrick spotted it in the net.
