    Two-mouthed Trout heads to Harvard



    LINCOLN, Neb. - People may need top grades to get into Ivy league schools. But two mouths is all it took to get a fish into Harvard University.

    The head of a double-jawed fish pulled from Holmes Lake will be off to Harvard this week. James Lee, a research fellow at Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology, contacted fisherman Clarence Olberding about donating his curious catch for research.

    "I'm interested in seeing what the actual jaw anatomy is," Lee said. He also wants to determine whether the extra jaw is a result of an injury, or if it's an actual jaw.


    Olberding, 57, caught the two-mouthed rainbow trout Saturday. After taking a couple of photos, he cut off the head and put both pieces in the freezer.

    The fish head will eventually be on display, crediting Olberding with the donation and catch.

    Nebraska Game and Parks Commission fisheries officials said the deformity may be a genetic mutation, but that the fish is fine to eat.

    "I wish I would have kept it intact and had it mounted," he said. "But I think it's going to the right place."

    I bet this fish was found actually in the Rivers of America... it mutated because it drank beer that was left over in beer bottles that were thrown into the river by drunken MiceChatters.

    Are they sure this is not related to the 4 eyes fish found near WDW? I mean.. look a 4 eyes fish nowhere near Epcot's World showcase lagoon...
