Deep-Sea Fisherman Posts His Ungodly Discoveries On Social Media.
It's no secret that fishermen have some surprising catches, but viewers are calling Roman Federtsov's discoveries "absolutely terrifying."
Federtsov is a fisherman based in Murmansk, Russia, that posts regularly to Instagram and Twitter. With every post, he introduces a new creature that'll reignite any fears or curiosities you might've had of the deep blue sea.
The Moscow Times says that his photos are reminiscent of Ridley Scott's film “Alien” while Gizmodo considers them part of the "most twisted Jim Henson movie ever produced."
One Instagram user wrote, "Dude these things look hella trippy. Wouldn't want one of these swimming by me. Lol I'd freak the eff out." This was in response to a photo of a halibut that happened to look a lot like a cyclops.
Others are shocked that he holds each of the "monsters" in his hand. Despite this, there are many fans that view his account as an excellent lens to an otherwise distant aquatic world.

As of December 2016, he has 77 thousand followers on Twitter and 54 thousand on Instagram. People are terrified but they can't stop looking!
