  • Russian Fisherman displays an Array of his Monstrous Catches
 

A Russian fisherman has displayed before social online media an array of his most monstrous catches. They include grotesque and wondrous creatures from the deep blue sea.

It is easy to overlook that an entirely different world exists beneath our surface existence. This deep blue sea life is very variegated. It is in fact almost alien in its significance. This enigmatic ecosystem contains such monsters that will give you nightmares if you merely gaze at them. 

A Russian fisherman has posted pics on his twitter account regarding such creatures as fish with knife-like teeth and eight-legged crustaceans.  

He works on a trawler. Also he has shared his catches on Flickr. Among the creatures is a frilled shark which is an eel-like marine species that has a mouth full of horrific teeth. It has been called a recent relic due to its primitive features.

Also the chimaera has been shown by this fisherman. It is a ghost shark. The chimaera has fins with wings and a lengthy whip-like tail. The eyes have a lean and hungry look and they almost appear to be green in their hue. 

The eyes glow when they are brought into the light. In the darkness of the deep sea, these eyes seem to belong to a ghost and are almost death-like in their appearance, according to the Moscow Times via Mail Online.

The skeleton of chimaera is made of cartilage. Some of the catches even had the fisherman stumped as to what they could possibly be. Not all the catches are fish. 

Some are crustaceans and arthropods. Yet they are all so bizarre and haunting in their appearances that even the most surreal of persons will do a double take upon seeing them.

Their grotesque and strange physiognomy may even give a few sensitive souls nightmares that refuse to go away. There are sea spiders among the catch too. They are called pycnogonoids. Then there are rattails.

 

 

Thousands of feet below in the sea, these creatures are subject to tons of pressure. This causes problems and issues in the metabolisms of many of them. There is even a blobfish among the catch.  It has been declared the ugliest animal in the world.
