It can be easy to forget that an alien world lives right beneath us – the mysterious ecosystem of the deep ocean of which we’ve explored less than 0.05 per cent. Here, creatures of your nightmares lurk far below the surface and these creepy images could make you think twice before dipping your toes at the beach again. The Twitter feed of Murmansk-based fisherman Roman Fedortsov has revealed a trove of terrifying catches, from eight-legged arthropods to fish with human-like teeth.
Among the many creatures brought to light is the frilled shark – an elusive eel-like shark with rows of terrifying teeth. The frilled shark is often called a living ‘relic’ due to its primitive features. He also tweeted an image of a wolf fish and a bearded sea devil – one of the world’s most rarely seen fish. He found a longhorn cowfish, recognisable by its long horns that protrude from the front of its head and a cookiecutter shark, which is part of the ‘sleeper shark’ family. Another strange creature was identified as an Angler fish. An odd fleshy protrusion coming from the fish’s head acts as a lure for prey.
Chimaera known for their winged fins and long, whip-like tails. And Fedortsov captured an image reveals their haunting green eyes.
