A fisherman has discovered a bizarre sea creature – which people online are comparing to a “cheeseburger with teeth”.
Roman Fedortsov, 39, from Murmansk, Russia, was working on a commercial fishing boat when he made the strange discovery.
While the fisherman usually catches cod, haddock and mackerel while out on the Norwegian and Barents seas, more bizarre and unexpected marine life occasionally gets pulled up on deck too.
After capturing the “unknown beast from the bottom of the sea”, Roman took a picture which he later shared on Instagram.
The deep sea find has been compared to a cheeseburger, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and even a chicken sandwich – thanks to its slimy, orange appearance.
On the post, Roman deliberated over exactly what type of sandwich the aquatic creature looks like and from which fast-food chain it could be from.
Curious Instagram users have been questioning what the creature is in the comments section, with more than 11,000 liking the post.
One person commented: “Holy c**p I didn’t even realise that was a fish.”
“I thought this was the new chicken sandwich to eat at first,” another user added.
Another user asked: “WTF is that?” [sic]
“The nasty burger from Spongebob” another person commented.
Someone else added: “Why does this feel illegal to watch?”
Despite the suggestions, the fish remains unidentified, with Roman unsure of what species it is.
It’s not the first time he has found some unusual sea creates – he’s also captured a fish wearing lipstick, some with unusual patterns, one with bright yellow eyeballs and all sorts of others.
