Fisherman pulls massive shrimp-like creature from water

FORT PIERCE, Fla. – A fisherman in Florida was caught by surprise reeled in an 18-inch shrimp-like creature.

Steve Bargeron watched as a fellow fisherman made the unusual catch off the dock and took pictures.

You can see them posted on the Florida Fish and Wildlife Facebook Page.

Bargeron said the massive thing was about 18 inches long and had its own tail, so he grabbed it by its back like a lobster.

The FWC  thinks it might be some of type of mantis shrimp, which is not actually a shrimp, but a type of crustacean.

Scientist still don’t know exactly what it is.
