Horrible Fish Caught in the Ocean Looks ‘From Hell’
A terrifying sea creature pulled from 1,100 meters deep has shocked social media users, with one saying the fish looks like it was snatched from hell.
Angler and photographer Roman Fedortsov shares all the weird and terrifying things he finds while fishing the deep seas.
The Romans sourced cod, haddock and mackerel from commercial trawlers and sometimes fished up to 3,000 feet below the surface.
But the 39-year-old from Murmansk, Russia recently decided to go deeper and caught a hellfish at 3,600ft.
“As they say, ‘I’ll watch you when they pull you to the surface at a depth of 1,100 meters…'” Fedorstov wrote on his Instagram page, which is followed by 650,000 sea creature enthusiasts.
It’s unclear what the fish actually is, but the bulging eyes with the yellow iris and bulbous tongue and hanging gums from its mouth certainly inspired awe among Fedorstov fans.
“Are these really rare species that we don’t talk about or rare anomalies due to pollution? asked a follower, referring to the animal’s odd traits.
“Now that’s terrifying!” added another, while a third said: “I swear, all those weird deep seas, those creatures look the way they do because they’re closer to hell. Terrifying.”
Fedorstov found some strange stuff in the depths, including an orange mushroom-like creature, an aggressive-looking anglerfish, and another catch that looked like a doughnut.
Recently, he discovered another “unusual representative of the underwater world” which was later labeled a “banned sex toy” due to its resemblance to an X-rated object.

“And such ‘unusual’ representatives of the underwater world are caught in the trawler…” he posted on Thursday, April 26.
Next to the caption was a video of his catch, an apricot-colored bulbous tubular sea animal with a hole in the bottom.
“The forbidden Fleshlight,” wrote one commenter, referring to a sex toy used by men, which is similar in shape to the creature.
