Fantastic Beasts: This Sailor From Russia Shares Pictures of Strange Catches Netted by His Fishing Vessel
Roman Fedortsov is a sailor from Murmansk who works on a fishing trawler. In his spare time, he keeps a very unusual Twitter feed.
The photos Roman uploads sure had us at Bright Side staring with our mouths open. Take a look for yourself. We have no doubt — you haven’t seen anything like it before!
