Ow! I guess that beats trying to clean the dang thing.

Still looks yummy, though.

What a bummer for that poor fellow. So, what do you think took that bite?

Hick,
Sheephead are pretty yummy. You really see all sea creatures as food don't you?

RD,
This was an early morning find on Pensacola beach. The fish still has clear eyes and was very fresh, so I assume he failed to outswim a 3 to 4 foot shark that night. I'm not good enough to ID the shark type from the bite. I am surprised it wasn't eaten completely...pretty hard to swim away with your caudal fin missing.

I suppose it doesn't hurt any longer.

Pablo,
Some people think fish don't feel pain...I think this one did.

Yeah. Sorry, y'all. It was me that took a bite out of that sheepshead. Their such a pain to clean, I figured I'd have a little sashimi instead.

And you thought it was a shark. You obviously haven't seen my teeth.

Thing,
That's quite a set of dentation you got there.
