The bizarre creature was found by Abdullah Nuren after he set off from Rote Ndao in East Nusa Tenggara, on Sunday February 21.
Abdullah said: “I initially found a mother shark caught in the trawler net.
The next day I split the belly of the mother shark and found three pups in the stomach.
Two were like the mother and this one that looked like it had a human face.”
Dr David Shiffman, a research scientist at Marine Stewardship Council, said he thought the unique look of the creature was due to a birth defect.
He said: "This is not a thing I study, but some experts I follow are reporting it may be a case of partial Cyclopia with one fused orbit but still two eyes."
