Fishermen in Russia claim to have caught a terrifying 'mutant' fish, that appears to have two mouths and a hooked tail.

The strange animal has one mouth on its face as normal, and what looks like another one on its round neck.

The video also shows the fish has a strange tail, which hooks around the bottom.

The bottom appears to have an odd bulb filled with transparent liquid, which the fisherman suggests could be eggs.

Fukushima to host 2020 Olympic baseball nine years after nuclear disaster devastated the Japanese prefecture

The Fukushima explosion refers to the 2011 nuclear disaster at the Japanese power plant in Okuma, just shy of 600 miles from the site this fish was found.

The disaster was caused by the tsunami after an earthquake, the worst disaster since Chernobyl.

A report commissioned after the event said the disaster was 'entirely man-made' and could have been prevented with better forward planning.
