Talk about an explosive discovery.

A live bomb was found inside a bloated squid caught off the coast of China.

The squid was caught off the coast of Guangdong province and taken to a fish market in Jiaoling County, where handlers discovered the 3-pound, eggplant-shaped explosive after the animal had been slaughtered, China Daily reported.

Authorities said it could have exploded at any time had it be handled improperly.

Local police suggested the rusted bomb could have fallen from a fighter jet, although no one yet knows how old it is.

"Perhaps (the squid) thought the bomb was his favorite food and gulped it down," Mr. Huang, the man who found the bomb, told the Guangzhou Daily. "He certainly had a big belly when he was caught."

Police later detonated the bomb in a controlled explosion, according to The Telegraph.
