The creature-like things on the fingers, appear if they were put there using a photo editing software like Photoshop.

      It looks like holes in the fingers where something once was.

      It's very convincing. The inside structure of the fingers and even the back of the fingernail.

      This might be a scam but I'm not sure if the picture is fake.

        You will be amazed by what you can do with Photoshop. I have seen some images edited with Photoshop, and I myself, found it hard to believe that the images were fake.

          It's a lamprey eel. Their mouths are pretty ugly, to be honest. And someone Photoshopped the mouths of lamprey eels onto fingers.

      A photo editing software like Photoshop, was used to place the creature-looking thing on the fingers in the image.

      The image is a fake.
