A man was out on a fishing trip in a New Jersey river with a bow and arrow. I guess thats a thing in New Jersey anyways he saw this creature lurking towards the top of the water and took a shot at it.
The New York Daily news went to outdoor magazine with the pic and they said that the beast is most likely a freakishly large sea lamprey.
Then they went on to give a disturbing description of it saying lamprey are a sea parasite that usually grow to 3 feet however this one looks well over that. Lamprey survive by using their terrifying alien like teeth to latch onto its prey before injecting it with digestive fluids that eat away at and kill the fish (or, with a lamprey that size possible innocent swimmer). Only one out of seven fish survive an attack.
Life Lesson....Stay out of murky water
