Cyclops baby albino shark shocks fishermen after they find it inside the gut of an adult

  • The cyclops shark was found in the belly of an adult shark that died in a net 
  • Fishermen in Indonesia cut open the belly of the adult and found the rare fish
  • The milky-white creature was already dead but had one large eye on its head 

An incredibly rare baby albino shark with only one eye has been found by shocked fishermen in Indonesia.  

The cyclops was found inside the belly of an adult shark that died after being caught in the nets while the fishermen were sailing across Maluku province. 

The adult shark was cleaned and its belly was cut open to remove the gut where they found the tiny white shark inside.

It had one eye in the middle of its head and a milky-white colour, its fins and other parts already formed. 

Andy, 29, said the shark could have been pregnant with the rare baby before it was accidentally caught in the net on October 10.

He said: ‘We found three babies inside its stomach, but one of them looked strange with only one eye. 

‘Its colour was strange too, like milk.’

The fishermen reported the incident to the local marine office before turning over the baby shark. 

The creature was already dead when they found it. 

The baby shark had a condition called Cyclopia, a birth deformity that causes the embryo to form only one eye instead of two. 

Its other condition, Albinism, forces the shark to produce low amounts of melanin, which is responsible for pigment in the body.
