Who'd have thought that an innocent watermelon could look so scary?!

These delicious designs are made by the extremely talented Clive Cooper, who works watermelons into a whole array of wacky designs, including vicious crocs and teeth-bearing sharks.

The skilful sculptor, 56, from Vancouver, Canada, uses tools and knives to create the fruity figures – and just look at how detailed they are!

Clive used to carve pumpkins but they weren't quite right.

He was quoted in The Sun, saying: "I couldn't achieve what I really wanted to do because the insides don't have enough structure.

"I like to use watermelons because they have green, white and red colouring, whereas with pumpkins you only have orange to work with."

We're well impressed - these designs are too good to eat!
