The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources shared an unusual riddle with followers on social media Wednesday.

For "What is it Wednesday," the agency asked if the public knew the name of a saltwater fish that has human-like molars and incisors. They shared a photo of the mystery fish snapped by DNR biologist Pam Corwin.

For clues, DNR said the fish hangs out near rocks, jetties and reefs, has black and white stripes, and is known to eat shrimp and oysters.
