EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (KWQC) – An Eau Claire toddler has captured the hearts of the internet by innocently posing with a fake fish in his mouth.

The 18-month-old Landon, along with brothers Levi, 4 and Logan 3, had just caught the rubber fish in a children's fishing pond at a museum.

The boys' mother, Marika Daniels did not realize what the youngest had done until after the photo was taken.

She thought it was funny, but did not expect the image to become an online meme while garnering more than a half million shares on Facebook.

"[I'm] honestly very humbled by all the likes, shares, smiles and laughs this picture has brought to so many people already," Daniels tells KWQC. "I think the world needs to laugh and smile more, and I think that is why this picture went viral."
