A DOGWALKER who found this grizzly fish head on the beach is appealing for help in identifying the creature.

Last Monday, Gary Boyd was out with his dogs near to Victoria Park when his nosy Border Terrier Oliver picked up the underwater animal in his mouth.

And when Mr Boyd went to retrieve the creature from Oliver’s mouth he was stunned at what it was.

He explained: “He has picked up this thing which had the body of a normal fish but its head looked like a piranha with a big mouth and razor sharp teeth.

“I have asked around friends to see if they know what it is but nobody has seen anything like it before.

“I even took it to M&M Spink to see if they knew what it was but they weren’t sure.

“They said it looked like something pre-historic to them.”

And now Mr Boyd is curious to find anybody who would be able to identify the creature so he knows what his dog picked up.

He added: “I’m desperate to find out what it is. I’m not going back in the water there otherwise!”
