ARNOLD, UK – A mother discovered something strange staring back at her when she opened a can of tuna.

According to The Nottingham Post, 28-year-old Zoe Butler found a creature looking back underneath the lid.

“I opened the top of the lid and saw a purply thing, a gut sack or intestine, then I turned it round and pushed it with a fork and saw it looking back at me,” Butler told The Nottingham Post. “It’s got like a spiny tail along the bottom; it’s quite grim.”

Experts said the sea creature looks like a baby crab of some kind.

The tuna company is now investigating.
