(ECNS) - A fish with a 'human face' is attracting waves of visitors to the home of its owner in Wugang City, Central China's Hunan Province, local media reported.

The "humanoid" carp belongs to Qiu Xioahua, a teacher at an elementary school in Wugang. Qiu has fished for nearly 20 years, but this is the first time he has caught this kind of carp.

The dark brown fish, caught by Qiu at a reservoir on April 30, measures 36 centimeters long and weighs 800 grams. The fish's mouth, nose and eyes resemble those of a human.

Pictures of the fish have gone viral on Chinese Internet platforms.

Domestic media reports of carp with a human face are rare. A 2010 report in the UK said the owner of a similar 'humanoid' carp was offered 40,000 pounds for it.
