Uh, it's a fake. For more reasons than I care to go into.

well, i think it is real, in the sense that it is not photoshoped. but it's quite a bad model since even your average 9th-grader can prove it to be a hoax..

Thank you for your answers. I thought alot about this fish.
We have a lot of wonderful creatures in our beautiful planet, and they surprise us with a variety of forms and colors etc. But everything they have (i mean teeth or fur or whatever) - there is reason why.
So, this fish has strange teeth, like a mammal. But mammals need such a teeth for catching, killing and chewing. Fish only catches, keeps and swallows (sometimes cut)...
I think it is photoshop... But who knows?

i don't think it's photoshop. it's very hard to photoshop something like that. It's a model made out of paper, glue and plastic probably.

Mnnng no, not photoshopped. It's usually quite easy to see the defects where two images have been joined.

In my opinion there are some real parts of animals here. The teeth, probably. The skin does look like papier mache (however the evil stuff is spelt) painted and textured.

It could actually be a complete skull which has then had a dodgy fish tail stuck on the back.

its fake... im sure of it cause nature wont select that kind of creature...
1. the tooth doesnt fit its prey in water the fish would just slip away from its mouth
2. i cant see any gills at all??? (mammal??) i dont think so.
3. the one who made dos picture just want the fame.
