This woman experienced the shock of her life when she was attacked by a fish she beheaded just moments before. 

The fish began moving, scaring the woman as she tried to finish scaling it. It’s as if the sea creature was attempting to bring itself back from the dead.


Throughout the video, the husband comments on just how bizarre the situation actually is.

Although this bowfin fish has been completely gutted and cleaned of any internal organs, it is still able to use its muscles to fend off the couple.


The video, which was posted last year to Youtube, has received a number of comments trying to make sense of what is happening. The conclusion? User Gol D. Rogers explains that the body is controlled by both the brain and the spinal chord. The woman in the video was handling the part of the fish that was controlled by a nerve, sending signals to the spinal chord telling it to react.
