A dead shark was found aboard a Queens-bound N train Wednesday.

Snakes on a plane? How about shark on the subway?

Straphangers got a shocking surprise Wednesday when a dead shark was discovered on a Queens-bound N train.

The conductor aboard the train reported the deceased animal around 12:30 a.m., then isolated the subway car and the train went on to the Ditmars Boulevard stop, according to the MTA.

Once the train was at the station, the shark was placed in a garbage bag and thrown away in the trash.

Isvett Verde noticed the shark when she got on the train at the 8th Street station shortly after midnight and smelled something “extremely fishy.”

“I thought I’d seen it all, but even that was a bit much,” she said. “I have no idea how it got there or how long it had been there.”
