Two Mouthed Trout

Clarence Oldberding caught this odd rainbow trout with two mouths while fishing in Holmes Lake in Lincoln, Nebraska. The fish weighed about a pound and the lower jaw seemed to be non-functional.

If this ever became a standard feature on trout it could cause all sorts of interesting situations. Two anglers fighting over who caught the same fish, Catching trout on a dropper with both the dry fly and the nymph. The list goes on...

As for Clarence: He has plans for the fish, which don't included mounting. "I'm going to smoke it up and eat it," he said. (link via Boingboing)
