8-year old Zak Brown has been nicknamed “Jaws” after a second row of teeth – supposed to be his adult teeth – formed behind his baby teeth without pushing them off, Metro UK reports.

Picture shows Zak Brown of Wakefield, West Yorkshire. Zak still has both his milk teeth and his adult front top and bottom teeth meaning he has two rows of teeth. See Ross Parry copy RPYTEETH : Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the playground - beware Zak 'Jaws' Brown.  The eight-year-old has been given the moniker by pals - after forming a second set of gnashers - just like the most dangerous and predatory fish in our seas. But unlike the killer sea creatures, Zak is more dead cute than deadly and the condition does not make him scary - although it does take longer to brush his teeth and involves extra trips to the dentist to get rid of extra plaque that can build up between them.

The shark-like trait does not hurt Brown and eating hasn’t been strained, but him mother, 38-year old Claire says it has began affecting his speech.

“We thought something was a bit fishy when he got his first extra tooth through. All the while he wasn’t losing his baby teeth. Unfortunately there is now a good two or three year wait to see the orthodontist.” She said
