Adam Todd picked up the animal at a market near his home in Lisburn, close to Belfast in an attempt to make calamari.

According to the Belfast Live, the squid's large size struck him as strange, however, the 28-year-old didn't realise exactly what wrong until he began slicing it open.

Adam said: ''It was only when I started to prepare it I realised it was different, not another type or fish or prawn. I was determined to get it out in one piece.

''I wouldn't go fishing that often so the first time seeing one was in my sink. I knew it was some type of shark but not exactly what, a baby dogfish or sixgill shark.

''It was definitely a shock and I didn't know what to do with it. I would be used to wee fish or prawns inside one but not a baby shark.''
