Russia is in news. Not for another man-made catastrophe but for Nature’s aberration.

A deep-sea fisherman’s Instagram post of his most recent catch has baffled netizens. The crab, with a “human-like set of teeth” was netted by photographer Roman Fedortsov, who also works on a fishing trawler in Western Russia to supplement his income. He is known to post regular images of some of the most unusual deep-sea finds on his Instagram feed. Ever since Fedortsov posted the picture last week, his 652,000-strong following was set in motion.

Watch Fedortsov’s post here:

The caption in Russian, translates: “Crabs… there is something attractive and repulsive about them. Mother nature did her best. ” The image received a lion’s share of likes while some expressed shock by the crustacean’s ghastly look.

According to his Instagram profile, Fedortsov thrives on a peculiar collection of sea monster photos. His feed includes images of a fish that resembles a spider, a fish that resembles an earthworm, and a creature that resembles a blob. In other images, aquatic life is seen in swimming splendour.

For marine animal lovers, the sea is full of possibilities. In fact, Fedortsov’s fan following were quick to point out images from a US shoreline uploaded in June. User Kristine Tillotson posted her clicks to Reddit depicting an animal with needle-like fangs dead on a pile of rocks.

The lifeless body seemed to have peeled apart. Marine trackers speculated on the species in various ways: “I think it is AAAAGH!” Another user suggested it might be a wolf eel, found in the North Pacific. However, this mystery thrown out by the sea remains unravelled.
