When you’re an experienced fisherman, there isn’t much that can surprise you. Sure, it can be exciting to make a big catch, but for the most part, you always know what you’re up against when you’re out on the water.

But even these fishermen in Zhoushan, China, must have been shocked when they reeled this big haul in. And when you see what the caught, you’ll swear you’re watching a sci-fi movie!

That monster has been dubbed “crocodolphin,” since it looks so much like a hybrid of a crocodile and a dolphin. In reality, it’s something else entirely: a rare “beaked whale.” Nature sure is strange!
