Will the mystery of baby sharkclops ever be solved? More importantly, are we looking at SyFy's inevitable Saturday night D-movie or Disney's next big toy franchise? Either way, One-Eyed Dead Baby Shark Fetus™ has got its eye (singular) on the Montauk Monster's "Most Horrifyingly Cuddly Creature The Ocean Regurgitated" crown.

Do sharks even have eyes like that, with whites around them? It looks like somebody took a toy eye and jammed it into that poor baby shark's head. Or maybe it's just a rubber shark.
