A new kind of fish with Dracula style fangs has been discovered…in a fish tank that researchers had been keeping for a year. The fish had been living at the London Museum of Natural History for almost 12 months before scientists realized that they were a new species. They had been collected in Burma.

The pointy fangs seen in the picture are actually not true teeth, but only bony protrusions coming from the fish’s jaws. Furthermore researchers don’t believe that the fangs are used for feeding, except, of course, on virgins. It is believed that the they are usually used for sparring between the males during mating and courtship exercises. The fish have been aptly dubbed the Danionella dracula.
