Strange-looking creature called ‘Frankenstein’s fish’ caught by stunned fisherman – World News

A deep-sea fisherman has shared an image of a strange-looking creature called “Frankenstein’s fish” that he caught in Russia.

Roman Fedortsov, a fisherman working on a trawler in Murmansk in northwestern Russia, has devoted his life to searching for unknown creatures.

He spends months of his life at sea, much to the delight of his 649,000 followers on Instagram – @rfedortsov_official_account, where he often shares snaps of terrifying creatures from the depths he has found.

Recently, Roman shared an almost translucent catch with swinging fins, a long thresher-like tail, and a ghostly-looking eye.

The fish was covered in strange markings that made it look like it was sewn together.

The post got more than 5,000 likes.

Instagram users were fascinated by the Frankenstein find, with one person saying, “I’ve been looking for this little guy in these waters for a few years. You’re very lucky, it’s beautiful.”

Many users were quick to liken the alien to cartoon characters, with one person saying, “Looks like a Pokemon.”

Another user said, “Wow, it looks like a Cartoon Fish.”

Many budding oceanographers had their own hunch as to what this grizzly-looking creature might be, with one person saying, “Hey! A ghost chimera! Also known as ghost sharks, ratfish, ghost fish, and rabbit fish! I don’t see pictures of them very often.”

Other people praised the modern Jacques Cousteau, adding, “I love seeing these beautiful creatures!”.

Roman’s other finds include a parasite clinging to a fish’s eye and another beastly creature that spewed its stomach contents.

It seems that the more grim the discovery, the more evocative it is.
