A rather unusual fish has been spotted in a lake in China, which appears to have some very odd markings on its face, causing it to look quite human.
It looks like it has a human face
A visitor to a village outside the city of Kunming in south China captured a video of the creepy carp.
On the fish's head are dark dots which look like two eyes, two vertical lines which resemble the sides of a nose and one horizontal one underneath where a mouth would be.
During the clip a woman can be heard saying: "The fish has turned into a fairy."

People were understandably freaked out by the sight.
One person commented: "This is scary."
Another replied: "Who dares to eat it?"
The video was later shared on Twitter by a user called @Unexplained where it creeped out more people.
"Holy s***," proclaimed one user.
Someone else wrote: "I am so freaked out right now."
Others compared the fish to Voldemort, an alien and the animated fish from the 2004 film Shark Tale.
This isn't the first time someone has seen a human-like carp.
Back in 2010, a 44-year-old British man claimed that a carp he had bought five months before had begun to develop human-like facial features.
Brendan O'Sullivan from Dagenham, Essex, said: "It was astonishing. I could easily make out from the markings two eyes, a nose and a mouth.
"I thought I was suffering from sunstroke."
The fish was believed to be worth an estimated £40,000.
