The fishermen who caught the pink fish fish in Cabo, Mexico was shocked after he discovered the fish pinkish raspy skin, small teeth and odd green eyes.

‘I was really surprised, but what caused most impact were the eyes, so strange,’ the boat’s captain Jaime Rendon told Pisces Sportfishing Fleet.

Its eyes look a bit dodgy so he decided to throw it back into the water.

But it has now emerged the sea creature wasn’t from another planet (surprise) and is really a swell shark.

There was just something wrong with its pigmentation so it didn’t look like one.

Last month, a fisherman also discovered a weird alien fish with glowing green evil eyes and wings.
